Failing to fire, RCB on shaky ground

Kolkata: Under the IPL 2024 season, RCB is not performing as per expectations. Faf du Plessis-led Bengaluru suffered a thrilling defeat by one run against KKR. The match played at the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata was sometimes going in favor of KKR and sometimes in favor of RCB. After coming very close, RCB lost another match and with this Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The hopes of reaching the playoffs are beginning to fade away, but is the team out of the race for the playoffs? If RCB comes out of this situation and reaches the playoffs, then a miracle will happen. The match played against KKR on Sunday was the eighth match for RCB under the IPL 2024 season, but RCB had to face the seventh defeat.

Bengaluru has won only one match so far this season. The team’s net run rate is minus (-1.046), it has 2 points and it is at the bottom 10th position in the points table. The way forward from here has become difficult for RCB. Earlier in every season, teams had to win at least 7 matches to reach the playoffs.

Now RCB has 6 matches left and if it wins all the matches from here, it will be its 7th win this season. The way her performance has been, it seems that she will be able to win all the 6 matches. Even if this happens, their chances of making it to the playoffs will be very slim.
