Dubbed as perennial underachievers in the cash-rich league, RCB lost seven of their first eight matches at the IPL 2024.

Talking about RCB’s stunning turnaround in the IPL 2024, former India pacer Zaheer Khan gave the Bengaluru side ‘full marks’ for remaining in the playoff race this season.

RCB’s 47-run win over DC powered the Kohli-starrer side to the fifth place in the IPL 2024 standings yesterday. RCB are two points behind 2016 winners Sunrisers Hyderabad on the IPL 2024 table.

‘This does not happen without passion’

“They lost six in a row and have now picked up five consecutive wins. This does not happen without passion, so you have to appreciate that. We do not usually see a team revive its season like this after so many losses, so RCB gets full marks. Whatever you can control is what you base your expectations on, and RCB is showing that. Their last match is against CSK, so one of those teams, or both of them, could end up with 14 points. Due to this, the other results are important. They have improved their run rate as well. If all these things go RCB’s way until the final match, it will be an extremely interesting contest,” Zaheer told Jio Cinema.
