RCB seals IPL 2022 playoffs spot, faces Lucknow Super Giants in Eliminator

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) confirmed its IPL 2022 playoffs berth after Mumbai Indians defeated Delhi Capitals by five wickets in the penultimate league-stage game at the Wankhede Stadium on Saturday.

With two points separating RCB and DC, a win would have helped the Rishabh Pant-led side secure a playoffs spot after holding a Net Run Rate exceeding +1.00 over RCB before their clash with Mumbai.

Faf du Plessis’ Bangalore will now take on KL Rahul’s Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the Eliminator match on Wednesday at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

On Friday, Rajasthan Royals (RR) confirmed the second spot on the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 points table after its five-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai and became the third team to qualify for the IPL 2022 playoffs.

Royals went past Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) following their win to set up a date with table-topper Gujarat Titans in Qualifier 1, to be played on Tuesday in Kolkata.
