After a roller-coaster ride in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2024, Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bangalore now have a chance to qualify for the playoffs in the ongoing season.

However, their final clash with defending champions Chennai Super Kings on May 18 will decide whether they qualify or must wait another year to fulfil their dream of lifting the IPL trophy.

What will RCB have to do to qualify?

According to the stats, Royal Challengers Bangalore will have to defeat Ruturaj Gaikwad-led Chennai Super Kings on May 18 at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru by 18 runs or within 18.1 overs – assuming a first innings score of 200 runs.

RCB have played 13 matches and have 12 points with a NRR of +0.387, while CSK have 13 matches and have 14 points with a NRR of +0.587.

Pitch Report

Known to be a batter's paradise, M Chinnaswamy Stadium's pitches are flat, making it tough for bowlers to make some magic.

Weather report:

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), there is a 73% chance of rain on Saturday. This leaves RCB to pray that the rain stops and they can play the match, or else CSK will qualify for the playoffs.

IPL 2024 playoffs

Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad have qualified for the playoffs, and only one seat is left. Other teams—apart from CSK and RCB—are out of the race.
