Royal Challengers Bangalore will be looking to strengthen their chances of qualifying for the Playoffs by registering a win against the inconsistent Punjab Kings.
Punjab Kings will cross swords with the Royal Challengers Bangalore in Match 60 of IPL 2022 at the Brabourne Stadium on 13th May.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are having a good season and they are inching closer to confirming a spot in the Playoffs of IPL 2022. RCB have played 11 games so far this season where they managed to win 7 and lose 4 games. They are currently placed at the number 4th position on the points table.
With more than 2/3rd of the Indian Premier League done; it is that time of the year when teams start to scramble for points in view of finishing in the top four. It has reached a phase where the team's performances and the manner of victory take a back seat, while results and getting points on the board take precedence, especially for teams in the midfield.
There is a pattern that is generally formed by this phase of the league, with 2 teams sitting comfortably at the top, while one team has a disastrous campaign and sits last and the rest battle for the remaining playoff spots.
This season is no different and there is already a huge scrap for positions between teams in midfield. As many as 8 teams are still in contention for the four playoff spots. The two debutants in the IPL, the Gujarat Titans and the Lucknow Super Giants, have occupied the top two spots and seem to have put some distance between them and the rest of the field. The Chennai Super Kings and the Mumbai Indians are almost out of contention as they sit in 9th and 10th.
4 Possible Reasons Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Is Almost Out Of The Playoff Contention In This IPL Season, What Is Going Wrong
Chennai Super Kings is the second most successful team in the Indian Premier League, with four titles to its name so far. But all has not gone well for the yellow brigade in this edition of the IPL, with the franchise currently lagging in 9th in the points table. After winning the title last year pretty comfortably, the Chennai Super Kings were expected to kick on from their good run as they always do.
But the 15th edition of the IPL has been nothing short of a nightmare for MS Dhoni and his team, which means that they probably won't make it to the playoffs for the second time in three years. After their disappointing season in 2020, where they finished 7th in the table, they stormed to the title last year, which led many to believe the 2020 season to be an aberration. But since it has happened twice in the last three years, questions will be asked to the management and the captain.
Punjab Kings have bagged two wins in their last five games while Rajasthan Royals also faced defeats to Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Although, the Kings stand at seven but a win will put them above while Rajashtan Royals will slip down on the points table.
The Kings have 10 points in as many games and a loss will push them further down in the points table.
Rajasthan Royals have 12 points from 10 matches and they are placed at three as of now. But a defeat can cause trouble for Sanju Samson's side and they will have to win all three remaining games. It would be better for both teams to bag win and avoid qualification scenarios at the backend.
Gujarat Titans had a five-match winning streak before they lost to Punjab Kings in the last game, while Mumbai Indians, for the first time in their IPL history, bagged a win after eight straight losses.
In their first IPL season, Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat is perfectly placed at the top of the points table with 16 points in 10 games.
The side faced their maiden defeat in the last match but they are certainly on their way to confirming a spot in the top four for the knockout phase.
On the other hand, five-time champions Mumbai managed to claim the first two points in their ninth game after a win in the last match against Rajasthan Royals.
Coming into this game, the form and fortunes of the Mumbai Indians and the Gujarat Titans could not be more different. While the Gujarat Titans have exceeded all expectations by currently leading the points table, the Mumbai Indians meanwhile have tasted defeat 8 times already this season and have just 2 points on the board.
But as Rohit Sharma said, any team can beat any other on a particular day in the Indian Premier League. Add to that, the Mumbai Indians snapped their 8-game losing streak by picking up an impressive victory over the Rajasthan Royals, while the Titans got a timely wake-up call in their last encounter against the Punjab Kings.
With a playoff spot all but confirmed for the Hardik Pandya-led side, they also have the luxury of giving their fringe players a chance and the same could be said about MI, who have already been eliminated from the tournament. Gujarat would have set their sights on a top 2 finish, while their net run rate of +0.158 also took a beating thanks to Liam Livingstone.
