Playoffs

RR beat KXIP by seven wickets on Friday to make the race for IPL 2020 playoffs tougher. With this stunning win, Rajasthan Royals are now equal on points with KXIP & KKR.

All the three teams are tied on 12 points with just a game left to secure a spot in the Playoffs. However what makes the IPL 2020 Points Table more exciting this year is that SRH are seventh on the table but they have 10 points scored & more two games left in their hands. If they win both of their remaining matches, they too can bid for the fourth spot in the race for play-offs.

CSK is the only team which is out of the contention for the play-offs spot while table toppers MI is ahead of all with 16 points scored from 12 games & have already been qualified for the knockout matches of the IPL 2020. DC & RCB are behind MI on second & third spot on the table with 14 points each.       

On Friday, KL Rahul became the first batsman to cross the 600 runs mark this IPL season as he scored 46 runs against RR in yesterday’s clash which went in favor of Rajasthan Royals. There was not much change in the run-scorers chart in this year’s IPL season. Kasigo Rabada still holds the Purple Cap with 23 wickets fetched from 12 games in this season. Behind him is Indian bowler Bumrah who is on second spot with 20 wickets registered on his name. Mohammed Shami went wicket-less against RR on Friday & has fetched 20 wickets from 13 matches.
