Indian Premier League 2023 (IPL 2023) has been one of the best editions in the tournament’s 16-year history. There is still one place left in the playoffs on the last day of the group stage. Three teams are battling it out and only two have their fate in their hands. Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will play their final respective league matches on Sunday with an aim to qualify, while Rajasthan Royals (RR) will be glued to TV sets in hotel rooms, awaiting the results of both . matches. The final standings can be decided only after the league stage ends on Sunday night.

RCB and LSG, the new arch-rivals, may reunite if…

MI, RR and RCB are on 14 points each. Net Run Rate (NRR) is what separates these three teams. RCB has the best NRR. But a loss to Gujarat Titans (GT) in their last league match could put them out of the playoff race. Similarly, the possibility of MI losing to Sunrisers Hyderabad in Sunday’s game cannot be ruled out. If MI and RCB lose their matches by a huge margin, it will dent their NRR which will mean RR going into the playoffs.

LSG awaits the fourth qualified team to play the Eliminator on May 24. There is a high possibility that RCB will be playing that crucial clash to make it to Qualifier 2. Two scenarios: SRH beat MI or if Mumbai win by less than 80 runs. GT beat RCB by less than 5 runs or RCB beat GT.

Rain can spoil RCB’s chances

RCB’s luck may turn bad on Sunday evening. The weather in Bengaluru could prove to be their biggest disappointment. According to AccuWeather, there are high chances of rain in the RCB vs GT clash at the MA Chinnaswamy Stadium. Rain is expected throughout the day from 1 pm. There is a more than 50% chance of rain during match hours.
