Babar still ahead of Kohli
Babar Azam has completed nine tone in T20s. three of which have come in international cricket. Kohli, on the other hand, has seven T20 tons and is two behind Babar, in this race. Kohli also has just one T20I hundred to his name, which he completed in Asia Cup 2022 vs Afghanistan.
How can RCB qualify for IPL 2023 playoffs?
RCB have done themselves a huge favour by winning the match vs SRH on Thursday night. They now have 14 points from 13 games and need one more to inch closer to playoffs. Getting to 16 points will still not ensure their qualification as Mumbai Indians (MI) too can achieve the same number on Sunday night. So, even if RCB beat Gujarat Titans (GT) in their last league clash, they will have to wait for the result of the MI vs SRH clash to know their fate in the championship.
