In their sad loss to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on April 21, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) missed a 200-plus mark by only one run. They dropped to the bottom of the league standings with this loss, their seventh loss in eight games. Though their season was surrounded by a lot of negativity, RCB supporters held out hope that their team would have a remote possibility of winning, even though it would be extremely unlikely.

Since then, RCB has pulled off an incredible comeback that is evocative of the motivational stories sometimes featured in sports plays. Not only did they win six straight games, but they also did it with dominant performances, winning by scores of 35, 24, 38, 60, 47, and 27 runs, among other margins. This run not only increased their net run-rate but also put them ahead of three other teams that had the same number of points, allowing them to make an incredible late-season run at the postseason.

The Rajasthan Royals (RR), on the other hand, seemed invincible as they won their eighth straight game to keep atop the league standings. But their demise was unanticipated. It began with close losses in runs-a-chasing format, then resulted in defeats on difficult fields in Guwahati and Chennai. If Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) hadn’t won their most recent game, RR would have taken second place despite going on a four-game losing streak and having their last league match rained out. RR’s early victories had established a solid safety net, but it was insufficient to give them another opportunity to go to the final.

It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of momentum and confidence in sports. The disparity in success between RR and RCB serves as an example of how unexpected T20 cricket can be. Experience has a crucial role, which cannot be disregarded. RCB has an advantage over RR because they have already participated in and won six high-stakes knockout matches this season, while RR has never participated in one before.

Rajasthan Royals (RR) won their fourth straight game in Jaipur, while Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) dropped their fourth straight game. Even though Virat Kohli’s innings of 113 runs off 72 balls tied the record for the slowest IPL century, it was a noticeable departure from his recent, faster-paced games. The pattern has now changed, though, as the remaining RCB batters were unable to contribute significantly. Even after Kohli scored a spectacular century, RCB finished their innings at 183 for 3.

Jos Buttler’s century drove RR’s victorious pursuit, but his absence is now felt by the squad. Sanju Samson, meanwhile, scored 69 runs off of 42 balls. His recent form has declined, though, as he has only once reached the 20-run threshold in his last four innings.
