The Mumbai Indians’ (MI) powerful batting lineup overwhelmed the Royal Challengers Bengaluru’s (RCB) bowlers, turning the Wankhede Stadium match into a nightmare for Faf du Plessis, despite his team’s impressive 196-run total.

Ishan Kishan set the stage with a rapid 69 off just 34 balls, followed by Suryakumar Yadav’s explosive 52 from 19 deliveries, sealing RCB’s fate.

Now languishing in ninth place in the IPL 2024 Points Table with only one win from six games, RCB’s playoff hopes are in jeopardy, putting immense pressure on the team.

The upcoming matches against strong opponents like Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders will be crucial for RCB’s title aspirations. Winning these games is imperative to stay in contention among the mid-table teams.

Subsequent matches against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Gujarat Titans, and other formidable opponents leave little room for error if RCB is to secure the necessary points for a playoff berth.

Facing off against tough competitors like Punjab Kings, Delhi Capitals, and Chennai Super Kings in the remaining matches underscores the challenging road ahead for RCB, with anything less than six wins potentially ending their IPL 2024 campaign.

We have seen that it generally requires a team to have atleast 14 points to qualify for the IPL playoffs. Occasionally teams can qualify with 12 points too, but 14 points could be the safe side.

After playing 6 matches, RCB currently have 2 points and have 8 matches remaining, where they need to win atleast 6 matches, anything less than that could rule out RCB from the IPL 2024 Playoffs race.
