  • After the defeat by Kolkata, it will not be possible for RCB to win all the matches. A team may need 8 wins i.e. 16 points to reach the playoffs. If this happens then RCB will be out.
  • Now even if RCB wins 6 matches, it will not be enough to reach the playoffs. RCB will have to win by a big margin. This will improve the run rate and possibilities will remain. Currently the run rate is -1.046.
  • RCB has 6 matches left in IPL 2024 and with six wins, it will have 14 points. It is generally believed that teams need 16 points to reach the IPL playoff stage. However, it is possible for teams to qualify even with 14 points, but for this, RCB will now have to depend on other teams as well.

How can RCB qualify for playoffs in IPL 2024

The way forward is very clear for RCB. Win all their remaining matches and hope that the remaining results also go in their favor so that they can reach the top 4 with 14 points. But 10 teams are playing in IPL from the 2022 season. Since then, no team has ever reached the playoffs with 14 points. The team at the bottom i.e. fourth place also has 16 points. In such a situation, the chances of RCB team reaching the playoffs seem slim.

But RCB will definitely need a miracle. If the rest of the teams lose their matches and the equation comes down to 14 points for the fourth-placed team, then RCB may have some hopes. For that too, RCB will have to win its remaining matches by a good margin and maintain a good net run rate. But there seems to be very little hope for this.
