RR vs RCB IPL 2024 Eliminator on Faf du Plessis: Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) journey in IPL 2024 is over. Rajasthan Royals (RR) defeated RCB by four wickets in the eliminator match on Wednesday. RCB’s score was 172/8 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. RR chased down the target with six balls to spare. Captain Duplessis has revealed the important reason behind the defeat at the hands of Rajasthan. He said that we scored 20 runs short which was the biggest mistake. He said the batsmen failed to make much of an impression.

Du Plessis said after the match, “As the mist fell, we felt we were 20 runs short of a good score. But our players fought bravely which is commendable. If you look at the natural pitch and conditions, you would say 180 is a good score here. The ball was swinging and quite slow. But this season we saw that this score is no longer enough with impact players. Mist is also coming with it. Very proud of the team. We made a great comeback by winning six matches in a row. This is how comebacks take heart and character. However, today we could not give a special performance with the bat.

Let us tell you that Rajat Patidar (34 off 22 balls) scored the most runs for RCB in the eliminator. Virat Kohli scored 33 off 24 balls and Duplessis scored 17 off 14 balls. Mahipal Lomror (32 off 17 balls) scored quickly and reached a challenging score. Meanwhile, for Rajasthan, Yashshwi Jaiswal (45 off 30 balls), Ryan Parag (36 off 26 balls) and Shimron Hetmyer (26 off 14 balls) batted. Rovman Powell (16 not out off 8 balls) took RR to victory. He hit two fours and one six. RR will now take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier-2 on May 24. The team that wins this match will face Kolkata Knight Riders in the final.
