Kolkata Knight Riders jumped from 7th to 2nd place in the Indian Premier League points table after an easy 37-run win against Rajasthan Royals, who themselves had fallen to third place from the table. The Delhi Capitals, who lost yesterday and handed the Royals their place at the pinnacle of the table, are now back on top in the table at net run rate. Fourth-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore are also tied with the top three teams with four points, a league with very small margins separating the teams so far.
The list of top run-scorers in the form of Steve Smith and Sanju Samson was not majorly affected, as both fifties were cheaply dismissed in their first two matches. KKR’s young Shubman Gill, however, moved up a few places to 7th in the Orange Cap race as he scored 47 runs for his team.
With 222 runs, Kings XI Punjab captain KL Rahul is still one run behind the table with his first partner Mayank Agarwal. The KXIP openers will get a chance to add their stunning run when they are with Mumbai Indians on Wednesday.
There was no movement at the top of the Purple Cap race, with Shivam Mavi and Rahul Tewatia each on their side with four wickets. Varun Chakraborty now has three wickets, while Jofra Archer also took three wickets with his brilliant performance.
A new team will get an edge in the points table in Wednesday’s match between KXIP and Mumbai Indians, as both teams already boast better net run rate than current leaders Delhi Capital.
