IPL Playoffs 2022: Now with every match in the IPL, the battle to reach the playoffs is getting interesting. So far, the only Gujarat Titans have secured their place in the playoffs, while Mumbai and Chennai have been out of the race for the playoffs. That is, now there is a competition among seven teams for the remaining three places of the playoff. Among them the teams of Lucknow and Rajasthan are leading in this race. RCB is also currently included in the top-4 teams of the points table, but after the loss to Punjab Kings, its path has become a bit difficult.
If RCB loses the last league match, then there is every chance of getting out
RCB are fourth in the points table with 7 wins from 13 matches. Due to the defeat of Punjab by 54 runs, his net run has become -0.323. In such a situation, if RCB loses its last match of the league stage to Gujarat Titans, then with 7 wins and this negative run rate, it will be difficult to reach the playoffs because the other 6 teams of the league (Lucknow, Rajasthan, Delhi, Punjab, Hyderabad and Kolkata) still have a chance to reach the playoffs by registering 7 or more wins. Net run rate of all these teams is better than RCB.
It can be difficult even after winning the last league match
Even if RCB wins their last match of the league stage against Gujarat Titans, their negative net run rate can create problems for them. Because the other 5 teams of the league (Lucknow, Rajasthan, Delhi, Punjab and Hyderabad) also have a chance to reach the playoffs by winning 8 or more matches. However, if we look at the equations, only one team from Delhi, Punjab and Hyderabad can win 8 matches. Still, there are three teams left in the playoff, so here along with Lucknow, Rajasthan, any one team from Delhi, Punjab or Hyderabad can enter with 8 wins and better run rate. That is, it will be necessary for RCB to win their last match by a good margin.
