Third team to be out of IPL confirmed, difficult to reach playoffs

New Delhi. The teams for the Indian Premier League 2024 playoffs are now slowly emerging. One more name has been added to the teams that are out of the tournament. The Royal Challengers Bangalore team increased the problems of the former champion team by defeating them. After restricting the Gujarat Titans team to 147 runs in the match played on Saturday, the team achieved the target of victory at the loss of 6 wickets in 13.4 overs. However, even after this victory, it is difficult for RCB to reach the playoffs.

Virat Kohli’s team Royal Challengers Bangalore has now achieved a winning streak after suffering six consecutive defeats. By scoring a hat-trick of wins, the team has taken steps towards keeping its lost playoff hopes alive. RCB team, which has played 11 matches, has 4 wins in its account and can reach only 14 points even after winning the remaining 3 matches. In such a situation, his going ahead would be like a miracle.
