IPL 2022: Ahead of MI-DC clash, Dinesh Karthik shared a throwback picture© Twitter
Royal Challengers Bangalore kept their hopes alive of reaching the playoffs as the Faf du Plessis-led side defeated Gujarat Titans by eight wickets in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 match. RCB are now dependent on Mumbai Indians and they need Rohit Sharma’s team to defeat Delhi Capitals on Saturday at the Wankhede Stadium.
If Delhi manage to win against Mumbai, then both Capitals and RCB will have 16 points, but on the basis of a net run-rate, Delhi will go through to the next stage.
If Delhi lose, they would be left with 14 points, and hence RCB will go through as they have 16 points.
Ahead of the crucial game, RCB wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik shared a throwback picture from his stint with Mumbai Indians.
Taking to Twitter, he captioned the post as: “Found this in archives. #IPL2022.”
