Royal Challengers Bangalore’s playoff chances are dependent on Mumbai Indians defeating Delhi Capitals in an IPL 2022 match on Saturday. RCB currently has 16 points, while DC has 14 points. A win for DC will also bring them to 16 points, but they will leapfrog RCB into fourth place due to a higher net run-rate.

After the game against Gujarat Titans, Virat Kohli and Faf had a conversation, and in a video posted on the IPL website, both batters expressed how Mumbai Indians would have some extra support. “We have two more supporters for Mumbai Indians on the 21st, not two, but 25 more supporters,” Kohli told Faf.
In RCB’s most recent league stage match against Gujarat Titans, the latter batted first and posted 168/5 in 20 overs, thanks to skipper Hardik Pandya’s unbeaten 62. Josh Hazlewood returned with two wickets for RCB.
With the score at 169, Kohli and Faf du Plessis put on 115 runs for the first wicket. Kohli and Faf were both dismissed after scoring 73 and 44 points, respectively. However, Glenn Maxwell scored 40 runs off 18 balls to help RCB win by eight wickets.
