The Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated the Gujarat Titans in spectacular fashion, thanks to a vintage Virat Kohli performance. But the 2016 finalists are still one step away from making to the playoffs as they played their last game of the group stage. Now RCB needs Mumbai Indians to defeat Delhi Capitals in their last game of the season. 

Hence in the post-match interview, Bangalore captain Faf du Plessis reiterated his support for the five-time champions and hopes that MI captain Rohit Sharma scores big runs. Faf said, “Tonight was really important for obvious reasons.”

“You want to finish the competition strong and show that you are a group of people that has character within the dressing room. I think the worst thing for us that could have happened tonight was putting in a soft performance. That was really important for me to see from us as a group today and control what’s in our hands”, Faf added.

“Probably one or two inconsistent performances put us in the position we are today but it was really important for us tonight. We have a couple of blue hats in our dressing room for the next couple of days and I’m banking on Rohit to go big,” said Du Plessis.

Similarly, even former RCB and India captain Virat Kohli also assured his support for the Mumbai Indians while talking with Du Plessis during an interview. He expressed how he and the team will rest over the next two days and support Mumbai. Kohli also hinted that they could come to the stadium and cheer for Mumbai against the Delhi Capitals.

Kohli said, “Trying to put our feet up and chill out for 2 days and support Mumbai. We have 2 more supporters for Mumbai, not just 2 but I think 25 more supporters. You might see us in the stadium as well,” he added while Faf began the “Mumbai, Mumbai” chants.

The Mumbai Indians have had the worst season so far as they have won just three games out of 13. Similarly, Delhi Capitals have an upper hand in this fixture as they have defeated MI once this season. So the five-time champions need all the support they can get to end their season on a positive note.
