TATA IPL 2022: RCB’s roadmap to playoffs after securing a win against SRH

Royal Challengers Bangalore’s present Net Run Rate (-0.115) is negative, indicating that the franchise should try to win future games by a large margin to increase the NRR.

The Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bangalore has won seven of their last 12 games, and they still have two group stage games to play this season. It should be mentioned that RCB ended their three-match losing run by defeating Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad in their past two matches.

Throughout the league, Dinesh Karthik has looked strong as a finisher, overpowering virtually every bowling attack he has played. Karthik struck 30 runs off just eight deliveries, setting an IPL record for the highest strike rate by a batsman in an IPL inning for a minimum of 30 runs.

Wanindu Hasaranga, a crucial bowler for RCB, sits second in the purple cap rankings with 21 wickets for the franchise.

Virat Kohli’s form has been a major cause of concern for RCB this season, as the 33-year-old has been unable to make his bat speak. So far this season, he has three golden ducks, one of which came in the match against SRH on Sunday. The bowling lineup has its flaws as well, with Mohammed Siraj being off-color.

In this situation, the calculation is quite simple and clear. RCB will advance if they win all of their remaining two games and reach 18 points. With this number of points, the squad may potentially finish in the top two if the net run rate is higher.

The present NRR of RCB (-0.115) is negative. As a result, they must concentrate on winning games by a large margin in order to increase their NRR. Meanwhile, a loss would eliminate Bangalore’s chance of reaching the final four.
