Main match between DC and RCB

On May 21, Delhi Capitals will play their last match against Mumbai Indians. If Delhi’s team wins this match, then it will qualify for the playoffs.

Even if the Delhi team loses the match against Mumbai and the Bangalore team wins the match against Gujarat Titans, then the net run rate between the two teams will get stuck. Overall, the Bangalore team can qualify for the playoffs on only one condition that they beat Gujarat Titans by a big margin in today’s match. On the other hand, Mumbai should also register a big win in the match against Delhi. Only then can there be chances of RCB qualifying in the playoffs.
