In the tweet posted on 14th of September, Styris said that Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight riders and Chennai Super kings will be the four teams qualifying for the play offs. He added Sunrisers and Royal Challengers in the fifth and sixth spot. Punjab and Rajasthan Royals grabbed the seventh and eighth spot in his list.

When one of a follower, A RCB fan, asked why he thinks RCB will not qualify for the play offs, Styris said “It’s now got to the point where I’d be surprised if they qualify, and not surprised if they don’t.”

Now, team RCB has reached the second spot with 14 points in just 10 matches. The team needs just one win from four matches to qualify for the play offs. On Wednesday, they restricted Kolkata Knight riders within 84 runs and chased it in the 14th over to increase their net run rate.
After the victory, fans of RCB started criticizing the prediction of Scott Styris who firmly believed that RCB won’t qualify for the play offs. Check out some of their reactions below :

On Wednesday night, Siraj’s terrific seam bowling stumbled down the KKR’s top order line up. He became the first bowler in T20 history to bowl 2 maiden overs in a single match. In the 4 overs, Siraj gave just 8 runs and picked 3 main wickets of KKR. Captain Kohli heaped all praise to Siraj in the post match presentation.
