Keeping the Playoffs’ hope alive, Royal Challengers Bangalore after defeating Gujarat Titans will keep an eye on Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals in a tense race to the qualification. Looking at the RCB’s qualification scenario, Netizens are coming up with hilarious memes and jokes.
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) kept their hopes alive on Thursday night by securing 4th place in the IPL 2022 playoffs. The men in red with a comprehensive 8-wicket victory over table-toppers Gujarat Lions shattered the playoff dreams of two other teams, Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
But the race to IPL 2022 Playoff has only got extreme with just one spot up for grabs. RCB’s 8 wicket win over Gujarat on Thursday took them to the 4th position on the points table with 16 points and keeps them alive in the Playoffs. Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals will be playing against CSK and a victory in that match will see Sanju Samson led side not only qualify for IPL Playoffs but will move to the second spot with 18 points and a better net run rate than the already qualified Lucknow Super Giants (LSG).
On the other hand, Delhi Capitals will be playing their do-or-die match against Mumbai Indians and both RCB and RR will be closely watching this match as it will have a great influence on results. If Rajasthan Royals lose to CSK and DC suffers defeat at the hands of MI, then RCB and RR both will qualify for the playoffs with 16 points each, leaving behind DC with 14 points.
Nevertheless, if DC wins against MI, and RR loses to CSK then RCB will miss the bus to IPL Playoff due to their negative NRR. For RCB to qualify for IPL 2022 playoffs they need RR to lose to CSK by a huge margin. Presently, both DC and RR have better NRR than RCB and if DC and RR win their respective matches, RCB will be knocked out of IPL 2022.
The qualification scenario has resulted in a meme fest as Netizens laugh at the RCB’s situation.
