This victory marked their sixth consecutive win, showcasing their remarkable form in the latter stages of the tournament.

As the stadium erupted in celebration, star RCB batter Virat Kohli and his wife, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, couldn’t hold back their tears of happiness.

With this win, RCB secured the fourth spot in the IPL 2024 standings. They finished the league stage with seven wins and seven losses, accumulating 14 points. CSK, however having the same win-loss record, slipped down to fifth place due to a lower net run rate. RCB’s consistent performances throughout the season paid off, and they joined Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the playoffs.

Hence the atmosphere at the Chinnaswamy Stadium was charged with intense emotions and unbridled joy. Fans cheered, players hugged, and the entire RCB team celebrated their hard-fought victory. For Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, it was a moment they would cherish forever—a blend of relief, pride, and sheer happiness.
