Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) managed to keep their hopes alive of reaching the playoffs of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 as the Faf du Plessis-led side registered an 8-wicket win over Gujarat Titans (GT) on Thursday.  RCB are now dependent on Mumbai Indians and they need Rohit Sharma’s team to defeat Delhi Capitals (DC) on Saturday at the Wankhede Stadium.

If Delhi manages to register a win over Mumbai, then both Capitals and RCB will have 16 points, but on the basis of a better net run rate, DCC will manage to reach the playoffs. If Delhi loses, they would be left with 14 points, and hence RCB will go through as they have 16 points.
