CSK came back on track after beating SRH with a stupendous performance. The victory helped CSK to move up on sixth position surpassing Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2020 Points Table. CSK & SRH are the only teams which have played eight games as the tournament has entered its second half & are tied at six pints each.
Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals & RCB stay tied at 10 points on the top of the Points table with KKR at fourth spot with eight points in what has been so far a tightly contested league. CSK’s FAF Du Plessis missed an opportunity to trouble KXIP’s opening pair of KL Rahul & Mayank Agarwal in the race of Orange Cap.
Warner who is enjoying fourth spot in the run scorers list & his opening partner Jonny Bairstow who is behind him securing the fifth spot also failed to move up on the order with the SRH openers losing their wickets very early at 9 & 23 runs respectively. Rashid khan failed to grab even a single wicket in his previous match and so remains behind in the race of Purple Cap. T Natarajan moved up on the Points Table by grabbing nine wickets but still stays far away from the top wicket takes which is still led by Rabada who has 17 wickets fetched from seven games. He has taken a significant lead over the Mumbai Indians pacer duo of Jasprit Bumrah & Trent Boult who are still at 11 wickets each.
