RCB have changed the color of their logo on their social media accounts. The franchise has changed the color of the people from red to blue. Although this happened only for one day. RCB have changed the color of their people to support MI. Actually, Mumbai’s win will give Bengaluru an entry into the play-offs. RCB’s playoff hopes rest on the victory of MI in the points table of IPL-15. If MI beats DC, RCB will directly qualify for the playoffs. But, if DC is able to win this match, then due to the better net run rate, Delhi will be able to secure a place in the playoffs.
RCB has also written #REDTURNSBLUE below this logo. The purpose of which is to show our support for MI playing in blue jersey.
Dinesh Karthik also did a funny tweet
Before the match between DC and MI today, RCB wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik also tweeted his old photo in MI jersey. Fans took it to mean that Karthik is also praying for Mumbai to win today so that his team can reach the IPL playoffs. Dinesh Karthik has played for Mumbai Indians in 2012 and 2013.
This is the position of the point table
Only one place is yet to be decided in the IPL-15 play-offs. Gujarat, Lucknow and Rajasthan have already qualified for the playoffs. The fourth place will be decided by the match between Delhi and Mumbai. RCB are currently fourth in the points table with 16 points but their net run rate is in the negative. At the same time, Delhi is in fifth place with 14 points and its net run rate is much better than Bangalore.
If Mumbai, already out of the tournament, beats Delhi today, Bangalore will easily advance to the next round. On the other hand, if Delhi wins this match, then it will also get 16 points and due to good net run rate, it will get fourth place. This is the reason why supporters of Bangalore are supporting Mumbai with their whole heartedness today. This thing is also funny because often the fans of RCB and Mumbai are seen fighting and trolling each other on social media.
