In an unforgettable night for RCB fans, the team not only secured the last remaining playoff spot but also gave their supporters a memorable lap of honour, celebrating the unwavering faith and support of their home crowd.

RCB, driven by the stellar performances of skipper Faf du Plessis and star batsman Virat Kohli, posted an imposing total of 218/5 in a rain-affected innings. Du Plessis contributed a vital 54, while Kohli added 47, setting a solid foundation for the team. In response, CSK managed 191/7, falling short despite a spirited chase. Both teams ended up with 14 points each, but RCB advanced on a superior run rate, thanks to their sixth consecutive win.
