It has been close to a month since the Indian Premier League 2019 kicked off. Since then we’ve seen countless changes to the points table every day. Two things, however, remained constant for the most part of the tournament – Chennai Super Kings keeping a stronghold of their top spot on the table, and of course, Royal Challengers Bangalore maintaining their position at the bottom. On April 16, Kings XI Punjab beat Rajasthan Royals by 12 runs. Here’s a look at the table after that match.
CSK are at the top with 14 points in eight games, followed by Delhi Capitals with 10 points in eight games. On the third position is Mumbai Indians with 10 points in eight games. The two teams are separated by DC’s better net run rate of +0.418. Kings XI Punjab also have 10 points like the two teams above, but trail behind because of more matches played. KXIP played nine games and also have a slightly poor net run rate. On the fifth position is Kolkata Knight Riders with eight points in eight games.
