Half of the IPL is over, Dhoni’s Chennai is hot in the Points Table, the wait for the play-offs is tough for ‘these’ 3 teams
The ongoing IPL 2023 season in the country is getting lots of love from cricket lovers. A total of 70 matches will be played in this season. Half of them i.e. 35 matches have been played. All the teams have to play 14 matches each in the league round. On Tuesday (April 25) Gujarat Titans Vs. After the Mumbai Indians match, each team has played 7 matches each. The competition has been very exciting so far. As for the top 6 or 7 teams, I don’t think they will have any problem making it to the play-offs. That is, this time we may have to wait for the 4 teams for the play-offs till the last league match. Now let’s look at the scoreboard. Chennai Super Kings team is on top here.
The Chennai Super Kings team led by MS Dhoni and the defending champion Gujarat Titans team have come forward with great performance so far. Both have 10 points from 7 matches each with 5 wins. However, Chennai’s net run rate (0.662) is better than Gujarat’s net run rate (0.580). Therefore, Dhoni’s team is at the top of the points table. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad have been in very poor form during the season. Delhi is at 10th position, while Hyderabad is at 9th position. Delhi managed to win 2 matches after their opening five defeats, but the Hyderabad team, which is considered to be strong, has not been able to perform as expected.
IPL 2023 Scoreboard
Talking about the IPL 2023 points table, Chennai is at the top while Gujarat is at the second position. Also, the rivalry between Rajasthan Royals, Lucknow Super Giants, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings is going on. All these four teams have won 4 out of 7 matches. All these four teams have 8 points. However, on the basis of net run rate, Rajasthan is third, Lucknow fourth, Bangalore fifth and Punjab sixth.
On the other hand, five-time trophy winners Mumbai Indians suffered their fourth defeat. They are seventh with 6 points with 3 wins out of 7. On the other hand, the situation of Kolkata Knight Riders team is also similar to Delhi and Hyderabad. The team is in 8th position with 4 points. Such is the case with Hyderabad. It is ninth with 4 points, while Delhi is tenth with 4 points.
The playoff equation
That being said, there are many more matches left in the tournament. Each team still has 7 matches to play. Interestingly, there is no team that has won or lost consecutively this time. That is, we are witnessing a clash of forks in the matches. It is difficult to even say that a team is weak. However, if we look at the current situation, the condition of Kolkata, Hyderabad and Delhi looks very bad. The IPL play-offs always go to the teams who win at least half i.e. 7 matches as per this rule. However, these three teams have lost 5 of their first 7 matches. So these three teams need to win at least 5 of the remaining 7 matches to complete the equation. Now it will be important to see how these teams perform.
