Royal Challengers Bangalore’s hopes of reaching the IPL 2022 play-offs rested on Mumbai Indians beating Delhi Capitals at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday. Prior to the crunch clash, RCB had even changed their social media profile pictures to support the Mumbai Indians. Stars like Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis publicly supported MI and hoped that Rohit Sharma’s side would please them. Come Saturday and MI did just that. They took out the better from Delhi Capitals to send the latter out of the tournament, paving the way for RCB to reach the play-offs instead.
After MI’s victory, crazy parties broke out in the RCB camp. All players and support staff watched the entire MI vs DC IPL 2022 meeting together at their hotel. People like Virat Kohli cheered at every wicket MI took and every line they reached.
The whole video made for a brilliant viewing experience with RCB sharing it on their social media handles. The joy was evident on every face in the RCB camp.

“It was really nice to see everyone here for the start of the match. So we all watched it together. We screamed for every wicket MI got and when they were chasing, every boundary. Just the celebrations towards the ending was just amazing to be a part of,” said RCB captain Faf du Plessis in the video.
MI’s win over DC meant RCB joined Gujarat Titans, Rajasthan Royals and Lucknow Super Giants in the play-offs.
DC finished fifth in the IPL points table with 14 points, two points behind the fourth-placed RCB.
