Royal Challengers Bangalore shot the Indian Premier League 2020 points table up from 7 to 3 after their dramatic Super Over win against Mumbai Indians. With two wins in three games, they have four points and are only behind the top riders Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals when it comes to net run rate. However, they have played one more game than the two teams above them. The defeat of the Mumbai Indians drops them to fifth place by two points, behind Kings XI Punjab at net run rate. While Chennai Super Kings also have two points, a lower net run rate sees them in 7th place, Kolkata Knight Riders are also on two points but have a game in hand.
SunRisers Hyderabad is at the bottom of the table and has lost both matches so far.
However, David Warner’s team will have the chance to open their points account when they take on Delhi Capitals on Tuesday.
KXIP captain KL Rahul retains the Orange Cap, with 222 runs, while opening partner Mayank Agarwal is right behind him with 221 runs. The two are the only players to have scored centuries so far in this year’s edition of this year’s IPL.
AB de Villiers, with his quick hit of 55 off 24 balls, moved up to fifth place in the list of highest run-getters. Devdutt Padikkal, who hit a 40-ball 54, and Aaron Finch, who scored 52 on 35, also moved up the points scorer list to 7 and 8 respectively.
Mohammed Shami, with seven scalps to his name, leads the race for the Purple Cap. Trent Boult with his two wickets and Yuzvendra Chahal with Hardik Pandya’s scalp, have joined a long list of bowlers in line with five wickets.
