Play-off hopes shattered for RCB as they lose to GT by 6 wickets

Sunday night’s game had supreme importance as that would decide the fate of the two teams. The results knocked RCB out of the tournament as MI qualified for the playoffs. 

Virat’s efforts went in vain: RCB knocked out of IPL 2024

In the rain-delayed match, the visiting captain Hardik Pandya won the toss and decided to bowl first. 

Coming down to bat, RCB had a decent start as the skipper Du Plessis bagged a 19-ball 28. However, things got shaky a bit in the middle overs but hands down to King Kohli. He hammered a 61 ball 101 unbeaten, showing pure class and temperament. The classy inning included 13 fours and a six, and the fans went crazy as the king hit his second consecutive hundred in the tournament. Proud wife Anushka Sharma was seen throwing a flying kiss from the gallery.

The red army put 197 runs on the board, but it wasn’t enough to stop the sensational talent of Shubman Gill. The young man hammered a ruthless 52-ball 104 runs to help his team cross the winning line with eight sixes and five fours. Vijay Shankar bagged a well-made 53 of 35 balls.

Three centuries in a day

Sunday had been excellent as cricket saw three tons from two games. Earlier, Cameron Green bagged a 47-ball 100 to help Mumbai chase a successful 200+ score. Later in the evening, Virat and Gill hit back-to-back tons. 

With the loss, RCB was knocked out of the playoff race as Mumbai qualified as the fourth team. The final showdown begins Tuesday as GT takes on Dhoni’s CSK in Qualifier 1. LSG will play Mumbai on Wednesday in the Eliminator.
