“Red turns blue,” RCB management changes colour of the franchise logo to support Mumbai Indians against Delhi Capitals

If Mumbai Indians win against Delhi Capitals tonight, RCB will qualify to the IPL 2022 playoffs

Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals will play their last round-robin league game of IPL 2022 later today and while this game is important for Delhi Capitals, as they need to win it to make it to the playoffs, it’s a very important game for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as well, because their playoffs hope also depend on this game.

If Delhi Capitals manage to beat Mumbai Indians, they will reach 16 points and their Net Run Rate (NRR) is already higher than that of Royal Challengers Bangalore. In case of their victory, Delhi’s NRR will get enhanced even further and since Royal Challengers Bangalore also have only 16 points in their kitty, Delhi will advance to the playoffs on the basis of NRR.

This is the reason why all the RCB fans are supporting Mumbai Indians today. Although Mumbai Indians themselves have already been ruled out of the tournament, their victory against Delhi Capitals will mean that Royal Challengers Bangalore will automatically qualify for the playoffs as Delhi, in that scenario, will get stuck at 14 points, and NRR won’t come into the picture at all.

RCB management is also openly backing Mumbai Indians today

Along with the fans, the RCB management has also openly stated that they are backing the blues today and they are backing the blues (Mumbai Indians) to an extent where they have even changed the color of the logo of their franchise and have turned it from its usual red color to blue with the hashtag “Red turns blue”.

The RCB skipper Faf du Plessis and their talismanic batsman Virat Kohli had also stated after their victory against Gujarat Titans that they would be cheering for Mumbai Indians in their last game against Delhi.

The result of the game between Mumbai and Delhi tonight will complete the top 4 of this IPL, as three teams Gujarat Titans, Rajasthan Royals, and Lucknow Supergiant’s have already qualified for the playoffs.



I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
