Five-time IPL winners Mumbai Indians bid farewell to the IPL with a victory on Saturday. In match 69 of IPL 2022, Mumbai defeated Delhi by 5 wickets. With this loss, DC’s dream of making the playoffs was shattered. RCB benefited directly from this Delhi loss. With Mumbai’s victory already out of the playoffs, Bangalore qualified for the playoffs. After defeating Delhi, there was a rift between Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
While Rohit wished RCB well, former RCB captain Virat Kohli also posted a handshake emoji on Twitter, tagging Mumbai. The Royal Challengers Bangalore team and their fans also prayed for IM’s victory. RCB all-rounder Glenn Maxwell also cheered on Mumbai on social media. At the same time, Virat Kohli was seen supporting Mumbai. Apart from this, RCB had also changed the color of the logo from red to blue on their official Twitter.
After defeating Delhi, Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma said: ‘We got into the groove a bit late, but at least we can get some positives out of this tournament. Congratulations to the RCB, they have qualified. I would like to wish all the best to the four teams that made it to the playoffs. May the best team win. Rohit said that we will try to correct the mistakes in the next season. There were difficulties after losing 8 matches, so we needed to correct the mistakes. I think we did well in the second half of the season.
At the same time, the former RCB captain, Virat Kohli, made a tweet after the victory in Mumbai, in which he wrote Calcutta and put an emoji of the flight. After this, in the next line, he posted a handshake emoji tagging the Mumbai Indians and the Bangalore team. In fact, the Bangalore team will now face the Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator match on May 25 at the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata. If the losing team’s trip ends, then the winning team will reach Qualifier-2.
