RR didn’t benefit much even from victory, war between RCB and Mumbai

66 matches of the IPL 2023 have been completed and now it is the turn of the last four matches of the league stage. Still, only the Gujarat Titans have made it to the playoffs. But Rajasthan Royals have probably kept a percentage of their own hopes equal by defeating Punjab Kings. At the same time, the Punjab Kings journey has come to an end. But there is an equation in terms of which we can consider the Rajasthan journey as over. That is, now there may be a fight between RCB and Mumbai Indians for the third-fourth position.

On the other hand, the matches of Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants will also be played on Saturday. After these two matches, the second-placed team can be in the final. On the other hand, if both teams lose their respective matches, the latest image may have to wait until the last match. On Saturday, CSK will face Delhi Capitals, who are already out. At the same time, the Lucknow team will face KKR, who would like to record their big win, as well as rely on the defeat of other teams. Then there will be the games on Sunday, after which the picture of the playoffs will be finalized. On Sunday, Mumbai will take on the Sunrisers and RCB will take on the Gujarat Titans in the last game of the league.

How did you almost run away after winning Rajasthan?

Let us tell you, the Rajasthan Royals net runrate had dropped considerably after the humiliating 112-run defeat in the last game against RCB. At the same time, RCB got ahead of Sanju Samson’s team in that match. In today’s match, Rajasthan had to chase the target of 188 runs in 18.3 overs to edge out RCB in terms of net run rate. But the team couldn’t do it and went on to win in 19.3 overs. In other words, its net runrate remained below the RCB. Rajasthan’s net run rate is 0.15 and RCB’s net run rate is 0.18. In such a situation, even if RCB loses to Gujarat by a narrow margin, Rajasthan’s hopes may end.

What are the remaining playoff equations for Rajasthan?

Now speaking of the equations of Rajasthan going to the playoffs, this team can only wish for the defeat of the others. At the same time, Rajasthan will be able to reach the playoffs only when Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Mumbai Indians on Sunday and Gujarat Titans team beat Royal Challengers Bangalore. You can reach Rajasthan only in this situation. On the other hand, KKR will also have to lose to Lucknow or record a close win. If KKR wins the match by a wide margin, then their net run rate may also cross RCB and Rajasthan on Sunday. At the same time, after the defeat of KKR, there will be no such equation left.
