Bengaluru Weather Forecast Live Updates!!!

KKR, RR and SRH have qualified for the playoffs while LSG, DC, MI, PBKS and GT have been Eliminated.

A victory alone will not confirm the spot for RCB, but they also have to win the game under certain criteria to qualify for the playoffs.

RCB have to win at least by a margin of 18 runs if they bat first that is if they score 200, they’ll have to restrict CSK to 182 or less. This bat-first scenario doesn’t change even in a truncated five-over contest: if they make 75 in a five-over contest, they’ll need to restrict the opposition to 57 or less, failing which CSK will go through.

If RCB are batting second and CSK post 200, the hosts will have to get to 201 with 11 or more balls to spare. If they hit a six from 200, they can complete the chase with up to 8 balls to spare. The chasing equation gets complicated in a truncated game. A target of 75 in a five-over clash, for example, will have to be chased down in 3.1 overs for their NRR to go above CSK’s.
