The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) secured their spot in the Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024) playoffs after their incredible resurgence in the tournament.

The Faf du Plessis-led RCB had a dismal start to the season with just one win in their first eight matches, but they defied the odds and stormed their way into the playoffs by winning six consecutive matches in the ongoing IPL 2024.

RCB’s dramatic turnaround finished in the league phase of the ongoing IPL 2024 with a crucial 27-run win over the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their last league match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Saturday, May 18.

Despite the daunting task of restricting CSK to 17 runs in the final over to secure their playoff berth, RCB delivered a strong performance to win the game by 27 runs.

After RCB's qualification to the IPL 2024 playoffs, social media erupted with reactions, with the fans expressing their joy over the outcome, and one tweet from India and RCB bowling sensation Shreyanka Patil turned out to be a standout and is going viral on social media.

Notably, Patil has tasted success in the Women's Premier League (WPL) this year with the RCB Women by clinching the title. She took to the microblogging site X to slam the critics for laughing at the RCB and doubting the team's capabilities after their initial setbacks.

Well, RCB's journey from the bottom of the IPL 2024 points table to the playoffs has been nothing short of remarkable. The team's ability to bounce back from difficult situations and unite to script a historic turnaround showed the players’ resilience and determination. Throughout the latter half of the league stage, RCB showed their mettle and winning mentality to make it to the top 4.

The remarkable win over CSK not only helped RCB secure a playoff berth but also showed their intent, as they set their sights on their maiden IPL trophy win with momentum on their side and newfound confidence.

Sometimes a 1% chance is good enough: Shreyanka Patil

Meanwhile, Shreyanka Patil slammed the RCB trolls and said that people should not underestimate the team, as sometimes a one percent chance is good enough to break the jinx.

The RCB star Patil wrote on X: “There is a 1 % chance….and sometimes that is good enough. To all of you who laughed at us when these images were being circulated, it ain’t too late! Jump onto the RCB train, you’ll be in for one crazy ride!!! This Team ❤️#RCB”

Notably, the RCB will face the third-placed team in the standings in the eliminator at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on May 22, and the opponent will be either the Rajasthan Royals (RR) or Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).

The outcomes of today’s games—RR vs KKR and SRH vs PBKS—will decide whom the RCB will face in the IPL 2024 Eliminator in Ahmedabad. KKR is currently leading the IPL 2024 points table with 19 points from 13 games.
