How Rajasthan Royals Can Still Qualify For IPL 2021 Playoffs

Rajasthan Royals will be hoping to continue the excellent performance from the previous game against CSK. They still will have to win all their remaining games and the games will be against the teams of KKR, and MI which will be virtual knockouts. The games against these teams will not be easy any means and they will have their task cut out.

Royals will not only need to win their remaining games, but also they will have to win at least two games by huge margins to get their net run rate above. After the win against CSK, they will try to go hard against KKR and MI to move above them in the points table. Sanju Samson has looked very good so far in the tournament for the RR and the franchise will rely a lot on their skipper.

The likes of Riyan Parag haven’t been effective enough with bat or ball and they definitely need to make way for other players. Rajasthan’s next game will be against the Mumbai Indians on Tuesday evening and it will be a huge game for Samson’s side.
