RCB On The Points Table in IPL 2017
Question in detail
RCB on the point table is languishing at 6th position with 5 losses in 8 games. Their playoff prospects pale with heavy rain in Bangalore on April 25. While Royal Challengers Bangalore were hopeful of a late comeback, rain does damage to their quest for playoff race. They are now in a desperate need of winning all their remaining games 6 out of 6. Can they still bounce back? Well, nothing is impossible for a side that features Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. Their ability to fight back goes beyond doubt, but challenges along their way to the knockout stage could be hard to stem.
Almost out of the playoff race, Royal Challengers Bangalore needs a magical turnaround in the rest of the tournament. RCB's chances for the playoff round will remain alive as long as they win. One defeat would mean the end of Bangalore's journey in IPL 2017. Placed 6th after 29 match of IPL 2017, RCB on the point table is constantly lagging match after match. They got their worst ever start in the IPL history.
RCB's chances for the playoff round fade away given the fact that they have to win all their remaining matches. RCB, to their apathy, have lost 5 out of 8 games. A washout in their home ground makes the matter worse for them. Unfortunately, it adds to their woes. Mathematically, they are still alive in the playoff race. They can go through only if they win at least five of their last six games. Their points will reach 15 in case they manage five wins, the least required. Since their net run rat is poor, six wins will make the equation easy for them to qualify for the playoff round.
Can RCB still make it to the playoff round in IPL 2017?
