The Royal Challengers Bangalore find themselves in a spot of bother

After a massive 54-run loss to Punjab Kings on Friday (May 13), RCB‘s Net Run Rate has suffered a huge blow. RCB’s NRR has slipped to -0.323 from -0.120. 

They are still on the 4th spot in the IPL 2022 Points Table. But they are at least 4 times who can match these points and with RCB’s NRR is negative, they can still be knocked out. 

DC and Punjab have 2 games remaining and both has 12 points to their name with a positive NRR. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad have 3 games remaining and they are 10 points. They can still jump to 16 points if they win all 3 remainin games. 

KKR too have 2 games remaining and if they win both, can make up to 14 points as well. 

In this case, RCB are under a huge pressure after their loss to Punjab Kings. Had they won, they would be sitting in top 4 comfortably.

Now, let us look at how RCB can still qualify for IPL 2022 Playoffs and what are the scenarios that must land in the favour.
