Will RCB qualify for IPL Playoffs 2024?

It will still take some task for RCB to qualify for the playoffs. Since RCB can only equal CSK and not overtake them, they will have to better CSK’s Net Run Rate.

For RCB, the equation will be fairly simple. If they bat first, they will have to win by a margin of 18 or more runs. If they decide to chase in the tense tie, they will have to chase their target within 18.1 overs to qualify.

What if the match is washed away?

If the match is washed away, CSK will enter the playoffs as the 4th team.
