IPL 2020 |Points table as IPL looks full of possibilities

Indian Premier League is wide open with possibilities. Chennai Super Kings kept their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 campaign alive as they handed Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) — the side they had lost to earlier in the tournament — a 20-run defeat to move to the sixth position on the points table.

After opting to bat first for the first time this season, Chennai decided to tweak their top order by promoting Sam Curran as an opener alongside Faf du Plessis, with Shane Watson dropping to third. Curran’s 31 off 21 gave CSK a solid start while Watson (42) and Ambati Rayudu (41) consolidated on the start. A late boost from Dhoni (21) and Ravindra Jadeja (25) helped them finish on a par score of 167/6.

Hyderabad, in reply, lost the wickets of David Warner and Manish Pandey inside the powerplay. Jonny Bairstow too joined Warner and Pandey inside the dugout. Kane Williamson, however, gave the three-time champions a brief scare as he brought up his 13th IPL half-century. But the Kiwi skipper couldn’t quite get the required support from the other end, and ultimately perished in the slog overs while trying to keep the asking rate under check.

With the win, CSK are tied with SRH and Rajasthan Royals (RR) on six points, although Hyderabad are ahead of the two by virtue of the Net Run Rate. RR, however, have the chance to leapfrog both teams as well as KKR and move to the fourth spot should they defeat the second-placed Delhi Capitals on Wednesday in Dubai.
