RCB seek 100th IPL win as second place up for grabs




For Sunrisers, there is little more than pride at stake as the team has already been eliminated

Big picture

In terms of significance, Royal Challengers Bangalore still have a lot to play for in their remaining two matches. If they win those two games: against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday and Delhi Capitals on Friday, they will leapfrog into second place if Chennai Super Kings lose their final match against Punjab Kings on Thursday.

The importance of finishing in the top two in the IPL cannot be understated. In a format where one bad night can ruin an entire season’s work, teams will be desperate to afford themselves as large a margin of error as possible. Royal Challengers have built this position largely due to the excellence of their death bowling, a facet of their armoury that has historically been their weakest link.
