RCB defeated CSK by 27 runs to qualify for IPL 2024 playoffs.

The high-voltage clash of the group stage in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 took place between Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Saturday. This match was important for the tournament, as the result of this game was required to get the fourth team into the playoffs. And after a breathtaking contest at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, it was the hosts that stunned the defending champions and registered a memorable win to qualify for the playoffs.

It was a brilliant win for Bengaluru, and they have stormed into the next round. The defending champions, who were going well in the chase, fell short of the target by 27 runs. With this defeat, the defending champions are eliminated from the tournament. Despite losing six wickets for just 129 in 15 overs, MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja took CSK close to the required target. But in the end, the hosts held their nerves to pull off a stunning win.

The game started with the CSK winning the toss and deciding to bowl first. RCB started well with 31/0 in three overs when rain interrupted the game. After the game started, the hosts had a few quiet overs. But the middle order did well at the right time, and RCB posted a massive score of 218/4 in the first innings. They restricted CSK to 191/7 to win this game. After the win, social media was flooded with reactions.

Here’s how twitter reacted to RCB’s win over CSK:

It was a stunning comeback by RCB, as they were at the bottom of the table after the first 8 matches. They won only one game in the first 8 games, but they have certainly pulled off a stunning comeback in IPL history to win six matches on the trot.

This has helped them qualify for the playoffs. Meanwhile, CSK missed out on a playoff berth by just a slight margin over NRR. Now RCB will face Sunrisers Hyderabad or Rajasthan Royals in the Eliminator of the tournament. Yash Dayal was the hero for the home team, who restricted and didn’t allow CSK to score 11 runs off the last five balls.
