Royal Challengers Bengaluru remain in the Playoffs race

RCB secured a commanding victory over PBKS by a margin of 60 runs. After Being asked to bat first, RCB amassed a formidable total of 241/7 in their allotted 20 overs.

Rilee Rossouw‘s valiant fifty, scoring 61 off 27 balls, was the lone highlight for PBKS. Nevertheless, it fell short as PBKS were eventually all out for 181 runs in just 17 overs. Kohli’s outstanding performance earned him the Player of the Match award.

With this win, RCB have maintained their position in the playoffs race, accruing 10 points from 12 matches and currently occupying the 7th spot on the points table. To secure a playoff berth, they must win all their remaining matches and rely on the outcomes of other teams’ matches.
