JQL query to return issues with multiple values in a multiselect

I have a multiselect custom field called "Reporting Customer"  I would like to search JIRA for issues that have been reported by more than one customer.

I think it will be only possible by creating a calculated field (provided by ScriptRunner) and using the below code to store the count from multiselect picklist field:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField
CustomField multiCustomerField = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("<Name_of_multiselect>")
if (multiCustomerField == null)
	return "custom field not found"
return "" + ((ArrayList) multiCustomerField.getValue(issue)).size()

Then the below JQL query can be used to show issues with multiple values in multiselect

project = "ProjectName" AND <CalculatedFieldName> >= 2
