Mumbai Indians beat Sunrisers Hyderabad to get themselves ahead of the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
But RCB knew what the ask was as they were playing last. RCB squared off against defending champions GT on Sunday knowing well that only a win over the Titans can see them edge MI to the playoffs.
Earlier, Virat Kohli continued his good run and hit his seventh IPL century as RCB made 197 for five in a must-win final league stage game for the hosts.
However, GT dashed RCB’s hopes by reaching the target in 19.1 overs. For GT, the in-form remained unbeaten on a 52-ball 104, while Vijay Shankar made 53 in 35 in the rain- delayed match.
Asked to bat first, RCB were off to a brisk start with both Faf du Plessis (28 off 19 balls) and Virat Johli (101 not out off 61) finding the boundaries at will. This was Kohli’s second straight hundred. Brief scores: Royal Challengers Bangalore: 197/5 in 20 overs (Virat Kohli 101 not out, Noor Ahmad 2/39) vs GT.
