Just few hours after CSK beats RCB, RR beats MI by huge eight wickets to pass the knock-out blow to CSK’s team as the latter is out of the IPL 2020 play-offs after failing to show impressive performances in the previous matches of the ongoing IPL 2020.
RR grabs sixth spot in the IPL 2020 Points Table by scoring 10 points from 12 games after Ben Stokes helped his team to successfully defeat the leading Mumbai Indians in yesterday’s crucial clash. Mumbai Indians remains at the top of the Points table but with yesterday’s defeat Mumbai Indians missed the chance to lead over Delhi Capitals & RCB, as all the three teams have scored 14 points each in 11 games. Earlier on Sunday, Kohli hits 29th IPL century in yesterday’s match against CSK & moved up to third spot in the run scorer charts. KL Rahul comfortably leads the race for the orange Cap with 567 runs, whereas DC’s Shikhar Dhawan is next on the Orange Cap’s list by scoring 471 runs followed by Kohli at 415.
FAF Du Plessis also moved above Mayank Agarwal who did not play in the KXIP’s last match on fourth spot. Archer scalped two wickets for RR to move up to the 2nd spot in the Purple Cap Race. He is tied at 17 wickets with Bumrah & Shami but has a better economy rate than both the Indian bowlers. And as usual Rabada leads the wicket charts by scalping 23 wickets in the current IPL season. In today’s game KXIP will face KKR as both the team will fight for fourth spot on the IPL 2020 Points Table.
