The victory encapsulated RCB's incredible comeback run, as they had only won one game during the season's first half. With the victory over CSK, who confront a stark contrast after winning the trophy the previous year, the Royal Challengers extended their winning streak to six games.

RCB will play in the elimination match, while KKR, who have already locked up the top spot in the league, will play in the first playoff game and have an opportunity to guarantee a direct road to the final. With Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals still vying for second place in the league table, both clubs are awaiting their opponents. In the Eliminator, the third-placed squad will play the Royal Challengers.

The final IPL match is set to take place on Sunday, May 26.
