Frenzied fans root for RCB to stay on course
Though the home team is languishing at sixth place in the points table with eight points from four wins in nine games, the die-hard fans hope RCB keeps winning and stays on the course for a place in play-offs.
“I am still betting on RCB to win as many of the remaining (four) games and make up for the lost matches (five) to qualify for play-offs.
Though they have a strong batting line-up, their weak bowling attack and sloppy fielding are a cause for concern as they can’t afford to lose a single game to keep their hopes alive to play in semis,” said fashion designer M. Venkatesh before the league tie began in the eastern stands.
After losing three consecutive games, including two away and one here, RCB bounced back with two successive wins, including a 1-run thriller against Kings XI Punjab on May 9 and by seven wickets against Pune Rising Supergiants on May 7 here.
