Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are still alive in IPL 2022 after their win over Gujarat Titans in their last league game on Thursday, April 19. They now need Mumbai Indians to beat Delhi Capitals in their final league game to make the playoffs. RCB skipper spoke about him having confidence on Rohit Sharma to make the passage for them.
