RCB Keeps IPL Playoff

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) secured a crucial 47-run win over Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League (IPL) last night, keeping their playoff hopes alive. RCB, batting first, posted a competitive total of 187/9. Rajat Patir top-scored with 52 runs, supported by contributions from Virat Kohli (27), Will Jacks (41), and Cameron Green (32).

Delhi Capitals struggled in their chase, ultimately being bowled out for 140 in 19.1 overs. Captain Akshar Patel led the scoring with 57 runs, while Shai Hope (29), Jake Fraser-McGurk (21), and Rasikh Salam (10) provided minor contributions. Yash Dayal starred for RCB with the ball, claiming three wickets for just 20 runs. Lockie Ferguson also took two wickets.

This victory propelled RCB to fifth place in the standings with 12 points, tied with Delhi Capitals, who slipped to sixth due to an inferior run rate. RCB’s playoff qualification now hinges on their final match against Chennai, as well as the results of matches involving Delhi, Lucknow, and Hyderabad.
