The Indian Premier League is heading towards its closing stages. There’s been a lot of changes in the points table as teams constantly shifted their positions after just about every match. Chennai Super Kings held the top spot for the longest time but were constantly challenged by Delhi Capitals, Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians. The only teams to have a poor run at the IPL are Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals.
Following the DC vs RCB match and the KKR vs MI match the table saw considerable changes. On the top of the table is Delhi Capitals with 16 points in 12 games. Chennai Super Kings follow them with the same number of points and matches, but only behind on net run rate. Mumbai Indians make for the third spot, with 14 points in 12 games. Sunrisers Hyderabad comes at number four with 10 points in 11 games. The top four teams will be eligible for the playoffs. As of now, only DC and CSK have qualified.
