Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils are the only sides who have the lowest chances of making it to the playoffs. Delhi, who lost their 8th game on Thursday, nearly became the first team to be knocked out of the tournament if not for their mathematical chances. RCB are in a better position compared to DD at the moment but do need a lot of hard work and prayers. In reality, the game between the two sides could decide the team that would carry the Wooden Spoon.
