Road to playoffs looking tough for RCB Women in the WPL

Royal Challengers Bangalore

In the ongoing Women’s Premier League or WPL, Royal Challengers Bangalore Women are having a tough time.

With each passing game, the chance of making it to the playoffs is now becoming an uphill challenge for them.

Already they have lost five matches in the tournament and have only three left in the league stage.

For them to now qualify for the Playoffs, they need a lot of luck and God’s blessings to come their way.

Furthermore, in their last game, they were defeated by Delhi Capitals Women by 6 wickets.

However, things have fallen out way beyond control of RCB Women but they are nevertheless on the hunt for their first win.

Moreover, they have some of the top players in their squad that the franchise picked up during the auction.

But, they have looked only strong on paper but not on the ground.

However, things still look bright for the Women in Red as they can make it at least to the Eliminator if the following combinations fall in their favor.

Permutations and combinations that can help RCB Women reach Eliminator

The combination of factors that can help RCB Women are-

Firstly, they will have to win all of their three remaining games by very big margins. Doing so will help bolster the side to at least third place in the WPL points table.

Secondly, RCB Women will have to pray that Mumbai Indians Women and Delhi Capitals Women win their fixtures against Gujarat Giants and UP Warriorz. If this happens and RCB Women win all three of their games, then they will edge past Giants and Warriorz to the third spot.

Finally, not only Mumbai and Delhi’s victories, but RCB Women will also have to see if Gujarat Giants defeat UP Warriorz in their next fixture.

Then after defeating UP Warriorz, the Giants will have to lose their next match to either Delhi or Mumbai. This will leave them at four points.

If UP Warriorz loses their remaining games, then they will also remain at four points. This will give RCB Women an advantage if they win their remaining three games.

They will then go past Giants and Warriorz and find themselves in third place taking their points tally to six.
