Can Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants face each other in playoffs? Check the complete scenario
The game between RCB and LSG saw an epic battle as Virat Kohli was engaged in serious on-field banter with Naveen Ul Haq. Things got extremely tense as both the players had a go at each other that saw their teammates separating them from each other.
If this was not enough, Gautam Gambhir then was too was engaged in the banter with Virat Kohli and after the game players were fined their match fees. Even after days after that incident, players took a dig at each other on social media.
There’s a great possibility that Virat Kohli and Naveen Ul Haq can face off against each other as both RCB and LSG are in contention to qualify for the playoff and can lock horns with each other in the eliminator of the league.
For this to happen, some results need to go there in their favour. First of all, RCB needs to win their remaining two games against SRH and GT. They would also need CSK to beat Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings to lose one of their last league game.
RCB and LSG can play in the qualifier if Lucknow Super Giants suffer defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders and SRH thump Mumbai Indians.
