Former Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) owner Vijay Mallya thinks the franchise has the best chance to win its maiden Indian Premier League (IPL) title this year. RCB will take on Rajasthan Royals in the Eliminator of IPL 2024 on Wednesday. They qualified for the playoffs as the fourth-placed team. Mallya recalled the scenes ahead of the very first IPL season when he made the bid to buy RCB. He revealed that buying RCB and star batter Virat Kohli was the best decision he could've made.

Mallya shared on social media that he thinks RCB has the best chance to win the IPL trophy.

"Heartiest congratulations to RCB for qualifying in the top four and reaching the IPL playoffs. Great determination and skill have created a winning momentum after a disappointing start. Onward and upward towards the trophy," he had posted on X (formerly known as Twitter).

In their do-or-die match vs CSK, captain Faf Du Plessis and Cameron Green took RCB to a score above 200 and Yash Dayal produced a disciplined display of fast bowling to clinch the victory.
