Considering that RCB has defeated SRH in six of their previous seven games

After defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Thursday, Royal Challengers Bengaluru appeared to have regained some optimism. To end their six-match losing record, RCB defeated Punjab Kings at home in the Rummy Nabob Stadium during the 2024 Indian Premier League. It had been exactly one month since they had prevailed.

Though it was a surprise victory, it raised their prospects of qualifying for the postseason without even raising their net run rate. They only have four points after nine games, which maintains them around the bottom of the standings.

Most importantly, Dafabet won’t be able to finish in the first two positions on the table. If they win their remaining five games, they ought to finish in the top three or fourth league rankings at the conclusion of the league stage. With 14 points overall, they will almost definitely be guaranteed a postseason berth even if net run rate is disregarded.

For RCB to move up to fourth place, the top three teams—Kashtrapati Bhavan, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Sunrisers Hyderabad—must win the bulk of their remaining games. With two losses and one for SRH, RR and KKR will end with twenty, twenty, and twenty points, respectively, if they can hang on. RCB is now in fourth place with 14 points, therefore they should comfortably qualify for the playoffs.

Though it would be unlikely, Hyderabad and Kolkata can still finish third in the rankings if they play poorly and win only one of their next three games to end with 12 points. In addition, RCB, with 14 points, can qualify for the playoffs as the third-place team if the Lucknow Super Giants win five of their next six games and finish the season with 20 points.

The squad captained by Faf du Plessis will play two games against Gujarat Titans prior to facing Punjab Kings after defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad. GT has won four of their first nine games in the IPL 2024 season, having a quiet start to the competition. They are now ranked sixth. Punjab Kings have had difficulty getting back on track with six straight losses, which included a four-game losing streak.
