The excitement of IPL 2023 is at its peak. All teams have played their 13 games so far. That means now everyone has one match left. But only one team qualified for the IPL playoffs. Other than Gujarat Titans, no team was able to get the ticket to the playoffs. On the other hand, after Friday’s match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad, the matter has become even more stuck. RCB’s victory has doubled the tension of other teams. At the same time, the danger of missing out on the playoffs also looms over the Mumbai Indians.
RCB can eat instead of Mumbai Indians
The Mumbai Indians team made a strong comeback in this year’s IPL after a poor start. But now he’s again in danger of being out of the playoff race. Let’s understand how the RCB team has become a threat to them. Currently, the RCB team is fourth in the points table with 14 points in 13 games. At the same time, the Mumbai team is also in the same position, but due to the low run rate, their team dropped to number five.
RCB defeated Mumbai by winning the match against Sunrisers. From here, even if the Mumbai Indians win their next game, your team may still be out of the playoff race. Actually, the run rate of RCB is very good at the moment. If Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants win their last match. At the same time, the RCB team will play the last game of the league phase. In such a situation, even if Mumbai corrects the net run rate in their last match, RCB will know by what margin they have to win their last match. If this happens, RCB will qualify for the playoffs and Mumbai will be out.
