LSG was able to defeat them in the third game by one wicket. One of the IPL 2023’s nerve-stoppers. LSG chased down a big total of 212 runs on the last ball of the game.
How Can RCB Play IPL 2023 Playoffs?
RCB has played 10 games in IPL 2023. They have won five games and are in the 6th position with ten points. Still, there is a probability that RCB can qualify for the playoff of IPL 2023. To qualify for the next round they have to win four matches from the remaining four matcheswith a big margin.
Right now, Royal Challengers Bangalore is at the fifth spot on the IPL points table with eight points and a net run rate of -0.139. Their run rate is lower than all the top four teams on the table. Even KKR has a better-run rate than RCB after losing 5 games.
The big defeat against KKR left a bad impact on RCB’s net run rate.
Even though KKR, PBKS, and Dehli Capitals had better net run rates during the previous IPL season, RCB still managed to win eight matches and earn their place in the playoffs. Therefore, RCB supporters must keep up their optimism as there is a chance they will get an opportunity to see Virat Kohli in the next round of IPL.
