RCB’s IPL 2021 playoffs qualification scenarios
Royal Challengers Bangalore only need a won in its last three matches to qualify for the playoffs as Kolkata and Mumbai have lost their recent matches. Three wins in as many matches will give RCB a chance to finish among the top two if CSK or DC slip up in their last couple of matches. However, if the RCB loses all three remaining matches, the Virat Kohli-led side could be eliminated given four teams could end up on 14 points, vying for two qualification spots.
