IPL PLAYOFFS: RCB’s victory increased Mumbai’s headache! Chennai’s equation also deteriorated
Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore clashed in the Indian Premier League on Thursday (May 18). In this, RCB won by 8 wickets. Centurion Virat Kohli became the hero of RCB’s victory. After this victory of RCB, now the color for the play offs has increased. With only five matches left in the league, there are still three teams left to qualify for the playoffs.
After RCB’s win in this match, they have joined the top four for the first time. Their net run rate is also higher. An RCB win could cost Mumbai Indians the most. Because, now both the teams have equal points and it is mandatory for both the teams to win the final match. Even if both the teams lose, RCB will advance on the strength of the overall score. But if Mumbai beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match and RCB lose to Gujarat, then Mumbai will enter the next round. So Mumbai will have to pray for RCB’s defeat after trying to win.
The Gujarat Titans team has already entered the playoffs. They will play qualifiers. Apart from this, Lucknow Supergiants and Chennai Super Kings are also seen running in the play off race. Both these teams will also need a win. If Chennai and Lucknow lose their respective matches and Mumbai and RCB win their matches, then Chennai will have a chance to advance on the strength of Sars’s run rate. However, if Lucknow, Mumbai and RCB win, Chennai’s challenge will end.
Apart from this, Rajasthan Royals have a slim chance of making it to the playoffs. They will have to pray for Mumbai and RCB defeats on Friday (May 19) after defeating Punjab by a wide margin.
