DC put spanner in the work for RCB – A 17-run win on Monday evening saw DC land a place in the top four on RCB’s expense as they both have 14 points, but a better Net Run Rate (NRR) sees DC take the crucial fourth spot. The win comes as a bitter blow for Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli’s side as they now face an anxious final week in the IPL league season.

What needs to happen for RCB to qualify for playoffs?–

  • RCB will need to win their final match against Gujarat Titans (GT) to reach 16 points.
  • The margin of win against GT will also be a decisive factor as NRR could play an important role if DC beat Mumbai Indians (MI) in their final encounter.
  • For RCB to stand a clear chance of qualifying without the headache of NRR, DC have to lose to Mumbai Indians (MI) in their final game.
  • Ultimately, if both DC and RCB lose their final league matches and end on 14 points, it will be DC alongside KKR and and PBKS who will stand a playoff chance as RCB already have a poor NRR.
