Today’s SRH vs. KXI match is crucial for RCB. Ideally RCB should prefer SRH to win, because that will put huge pressure on KXI when they play against RCB particularly.
RR and MI are probably qualified for Semis (along with CSK of course). It is now between RCB, SRH, KXI really for one spot (And RCB & SRH can even eye on No.2 Spot in the Table). KKR too have chance but they seem to be not in good frame of mind, while KXI somewhat seem to have some fire now. So RCB should really be looking at KXI carefully, and they should definitely not lose tomorrow’s match against KKR (that might even give KKR a chance and booster).
If KXI and KKR win today’s & tomorrow’s match respectively, then it will demoralize RCB and SRH, and both will be knocked out I feel.
SRH have two tough matches (RR and MI). So they are likely to lose at least 1 match. So they are likely to tie up with RCB in points table, and their NRR is on the lower side (on the other hand KXI and KKR can challenge RCB in NRR).
So today and tomorrow is going to decide the fate of RCB
