IPL 2024: Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma get emotional as RCB advance to playoffs

IPL 2024: Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) prolonged their incredible run by defeating Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 27 runs to advance to the IPL 2024 playoffs.

The match saw a significant moment when RCB's former skipper Virat Kohli and his wife, actor Anushka Sharma, were overwhelmed with emotion after the team's vital victory at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Saturday.


The cameras recorded Kohli and Anushka Sharma's emotional moment after the significant win, which was then broadcast on the IPL's official social media page.

Kohli's blistering start with the bat, which included 47 runs, laid the groundwork for RCB's impressive total of 218/5.

Despite CSK's spirited comeback, led by Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni, RCB held their nerve, with Yash Dayal's composed final over securing victory.

The victory not only secured RCB's playoff spot but also highlighted the team's incredible comeback from a slow start to the season, with only one win in the initial matches.

RCB is in fourth place with 14 points, having won seven and lost seven. CSK is in fifth place with seven wins and seven losses, but they have dropped to fifth due to a lower net run rate.

In contrast, CSK's title run came to an end, raising questions about MS Dhoni's future with the team amid speculation about his playing career.

With Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the top of the table, RCB will now prepare for the IPL Eliminator match while they await their opponent.

The Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, and Sunrisers Hyderabad have already qualified for the playoffs.
