GT chase down RCB’s 197 with 5 balls to spare. We witnessed a vintage Kohli knock in the first innings which powered RCB close to 200.

And this is also the second instance where both innings saw a century being scored! Gujrat Titans have knocked Royal Challengers Bangalore out and Mumbai Indians qualify for the playoffs for the first time since 2020!
PLAY-OFF LINE UP!

Eliminator: Lucknow Super Giants vs Mumbai Indians (24 May 2023 at Chennai)
The fourth qualifier will be decided by the last over of the final league game!! .. WHAT A SEASON!
RCB vs GT: RCB fighting hard to stay alive!
Shubman Gill is playing a scintillating knock. He is in with a chance to score back-to-back hundred himself! Vijay Shankar played a scratchy knock scoring most of his runs off the outside edges. He found the middle of the bat in last few balls before handing Kohli a simple catch! With 8 wickets in hand, GT are favorites to win which will delight the MI fans! RCB need more wickets to comeback in this one. GT are 148/2 after 15 overs.
Equation: 50 runs | 30 balls
RCB vs GT: Powerplay Update!
Saha was looking rather sluggish and didn’t get going tonight. Shankar had a rather edgy start and wasn’t timing it well. That 16-run last over has given GT some momentum, and with lots of power-hitters to come, they should feel comfortable and favourites to win today, but recall Kohli stated that targeting spin on this track is difficult. Titans are 51/1 after 6 overs! Need 147 runs in 84 balls.
RCB vs GT: Kohli’s ton powers RCB to 197!
Virat Kohli’s record-breaking 7th IPL ton has powered the Royal Challengers Bangalore to 197/5 in 20 overs. The last four games at this venue have been by the team batting first. RCB would be happy with this total as they have something to bowl at! Faf and Virat got them off to a great start, and after that it was all Kohli with some late blitz of Anuj Rawat.
The target for Gujrat Titans is 198 runs from 120 balls. The Mumbai Indians will be having a close eye on this contest! For them to qualify, GT needs to chase this down! For RCB to qualify, they need to defend this! Will RCB join the top four??
RCB vs GT: GT scalp two more wickets!
Royal Challengers Bangalore have managed 74/5 in the middle overs. Shami and Yash Dayal were brought back into the attack and they get the big wickets of Michael Bracewell and Dinesh Karthik. Virat and Anuj Rawat are batting in the middle with RCB 136/5 in 15 overs. Can these two push past RCB 200?
RCB vs GT: RCB lose three quickly!
Fall of three quick wickets means that RCB must now rebuild, and in a crucial game, the onus is on the middle and lower order, who have struggled this season. Faf, Maxwell and Lomror are back in the hut. The audience has also been quiet, which is a significant issue. Rashid and Noor Ahmed bring the Titans back into the game. RCB are 93/3 after 10 overs.
RCB vs GT: Powerplay Update!
The Royal Challengers Bangalore are off to a flying start. Both batters showing positive intent. The third over saw the Orange Cap Holder going after the Purple Cap Holder and hitting him for four boundaries. It’s a must win for RCB and they are on the charge here in the last league game! RCB are 62/0 after 6 overs.
UPDATE: The drizzle is back and the pitch is covered! It’s very mild at the moment and we can start as soon as the rain stops.
