Ideally, after 5 consecutive defeats, the team’s chances to qualify for the playoffs for the finish but RCB can still make it to the top 3. Since WPL only has 5 teams, the teams that will be in the first position will directly be the finalists while the other two will have to play an eliminator.

Amongst all the 5 games that RCB played so far in the WPL, the game versus Delhi Capitals yesterday was their best one. Playing at D.Y Patil stadium, RCB was put to bat first. Captain Smriti Mandhana couldn’t help the team once again with the bat. Ellyse Perry made back-to-back half-centuries with Richa Ghosh finally getting some runs. The batting team put up a score of 150 runs. This time, RCB’s bowling attack finally joined the party with them picking up wickets. The match was stretched till the last ball however, the Bangalore-based franchise couldn’t win.

After the game, RCB captain Smriti Mandhana said, “Really good effort by our bowlers to take it till the 20th over. Definitely a lot of improvements but a lot of things to work on still. The partnership got us into the game, they both batted brilliantly. They used their experience to get us to a defendable total. Not the best of the starts, including my batting. The first 14 overs really hurt us, even 10-15 runs more would have helped. Towards the fag-end of the tournament, the wickets are going to get slower. Even in the last game, spinners got the ball to turn and pace-off and slower balls were working.” Nonetheless, despite all these with the help of little luck and a couple of wins, RCB can make it to the top 3.
