Rajasthan Royals’ Playoff Hopes and Performance

Meanwhile, the losing streak of Rajasthan Royals continues. They have lost four consecutive matches. Earned 16 points due to good performance in the beginning. So the mathematics of playoff was solved. But like last year, this year also Rajasthan’s performance has been poor. Last year 14 points were earned. On the other hand, Mumbai made it to the playoffs after falling behind. Now the situation is different. Rajasthan has qualified for the playoffs. But Sumar’s performance has been continued in the last phase. Therefore fans doubt whether he will be able to win the title or not.
