DC has put a spanner in the work of RCB- DC finished in the top four at RCB’s expense with a 17-run win on Monday evening as they both have 14 points, but seeing a good net run rate (NRR), DC occupies an important fourth place. The win comes as a bitter blow for Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli’s team as they now face a worrying final weekend in the IPL league season.

What will happen to RCB to qualify for the playoffs? –

  • To reach 16 points, RCB will have to win their last match against Gujarat Titans (GT).
  • The winning margin against GT will also be a deciding factor as NRR could play a significant role in DC defeating Mumbai Indians (MI) in their final fight.
  • For RCB to stand a clear chance of qualifying without the NRR headache, DC will have to lose to Mumbai Indians (MI) in their final match.
  • In the end, if both DC and RCB lose their final league match and end up at 14 points, it will be KKR and PBKS as well as DC who will have a chance to play-off because RCB already has a weak NRR.
