After suffering a heart-breaking six-wicket loss to the Gujarat Titans on Sunday, Royal Challengers Bangalore's aspirations of making it to the playoffs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 were dashed. Both teams performed impressive batting during the match at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, but the defending champions prevailed.


Virat Kohli, the standout batter for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, demonstrated his outstanding batting prowess by slamming a magnificent century in a crucial match, leading his team to an impressive total of 197. Kohli's achievement, meanwhile, was overshadowed by GT opener Shubman Gill's outstanding batting performance. The home squad was in disbelief after the prodigious opener's masterpiece, and his side won thanks to his scorching tonne.

'Disappointed, but we must hold our heads high' – Virat Kohli

After the game, Virat Kohli penned an emotional tweet summarising the season for the Royal Challengers. He wrote, "A season which had its moments, but unfortunately, we fell short of the goal. Disappointed, but we must hold our heads high. To our loyal supporters, grateful for backing us every step of the way. A big thank you to the coaches, management and my teammates. We aim to be back stronger." Shubman Gill showed exceptional sportsmanship by reacting with 'crown emojis' in his comment below Virat Kohli's tweet.


The five-time champion Mumbai Indians strengthened their playoff hopes by defeating the SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) with an emphatic eight-wicket victory on the same dramatic Sunday evening. The fate of the Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, was anxiously awaiting the conclusion of the RCB's match against GT. Unluckily, Gujarat won, effectively clearing the way for MI to go to the playoffs.

The Mumbai Indians (MI) and the powerful Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) will now square off in Chennai's MA Chidambaram Stadium in the Eliminator. Notably, the Mumbai Indians' playoff berth is significant because it is their first since winning the IPL title in 2020.
