Kohli will do everything in his potential to keep RCB in playoffs race: Tom Moody


Former Australian cricketer Tom Moody, who has been previously associated with Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the coaching set-up, said that star Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batter Virat Kohli will do everything in his power to keep his side in the race for playoffs, adding that the team lost steam in the second half of their campaign despite a fine start.
The race for IPL 2023 playoffs is on as the league phase of the biggest T20 league nears its end. As many as five teams are still in contention for the three playoff berths that are up for grabs. With an eye to secure a playoff berth, Royal Challengers Bangalore face Sunrisers Hyderabad in the latter’s backyard. With two very important points on the line, RCB is raring to come out all guns blazing against SRH – who will be playing for pride after getting eliminated from the top-four race.
A loss tonight will end the campaign of the Faf du Plessis-led side in the competition. Their defeat will ensure CSK and LSG – both on 15 points – qualify for the playoffs. Even MI (14 points) will stay in contention if RCB lose tonight. So many teams will closely monitor the encounter between the traditional rivals.
Tom Moody believes RCB find themselves in this situation due to the losses they suffered halfway through the competition. The team has been running hot and cold in its campaign during IPL 2023 which impacted them.
