RCB Playoffs Qualification Scenario: IPL 2022 is now moving towards its last phase i.e. Playoffs. While the team of Gujarat Titans has already booked their tickets in the last 4, there is a battle between the teams for the remaining three places. Especially once again all eyes are on whether Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be able to qualify for the playoffs or not. In this report, we are going to tell you how this team will be able to reach the playoffs.
way too hard
RCB, who have been waiting for their first title in the IPL for the last 15 years, had a good chance of winning the title this year. But now this team is in trouble and it is looking very difficult to make it to the playoffs. With 7 wins from 12 matches, RCB are on the fourth position with 14 points. In the next two matches, RCB will face Punjab and Gujarat, so their eyes will be on winning both these matches. At the same time, RCB would like to win both these matches with a good margin as their run rate is in minus. The side of other teams is stronger in front of RCB. The team of Punjab will also play against RCB to win at any cost because they also need to win to reach the playoffs.
Can qualify through this route
After defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last match, RCB’s team reached the last 4, but they are still under threat from the Delhi team which has returned to the winning path. In such a situation, RCB will have to win in the match against Punjab Kings on Friday. By doing this, RCB will get 16 points and they can strengthen their position. At the same time, Delhi’s team has only 12 points in 12 matches, so RCB’s claim is very strong. Apart from this, if RCB beats Gujarat along with Punjab, then it is certain to qualify.
Still waiting for the first title
RCB are still waiting for their first title in the IPL. This team has not won a single title for 15 years till date. Although RCB has played 3 finals in IPL, but they did not win even once. RCB had to face defeat in the IPL finals of 2009, 2011 and 2016. This year, Faf du Plessis was given the captaincy of RCB in place of Virat Kohli and he has the experience of winning the IPL for CSK.
