Chopra talked about that nice groups ought to preserve their web run price though they find yourself dropping the match. Chopra stated if RCB will get tied up at 14 factors with any staff then it’s going to jeopardise their probabilities of qualification.

“Great teams, when they lose give two points, but do not lose too much with that. They save the net run rate and take the match deep because it will come in handy in the end. If you see the first match, Chennai were 25/4 and found a way to reach 156. In the same match, Mumbai had lost three wickets in the powerplay but they found a way to last 20 overs,” Chopra stated on his YouTube channel. 

“But that is the staff that after they lose wickets, they do it one after the opposite and so they don’t play the whole 20 overs. The web run-rate takes such a stable beating, that ultimately they’ll get caught in the event that they don’t have 16 factors.

“The net run-rate will drown them if they are stuck with someone on 14 points. Their net run is worst among the top four teams and Kolkata, who have reached the fifth spot, their net run rate is better than them,” he added. 

RCB will face CSK in a mouth-watering conflict on September 24 in Sharjah.
