Defending champions Chennai Super Kings continue to remain in the 9th position on the IPL 2022 Points Table after their 11-run loss to Punjab Kings in Match No. 38 in Mumbai on Monday (April 25). CSK are just above Mumbai Indians with 4 points from 8 matches with just two wins to their name so far.
Mayank Agarwal’s Punjab Kings moved into the 6th position, thanks to their 4th win in 8 matches. PBKS have also lost 4 matches so far and have 8 points to their name.
Rajasthan Royals can go to the top of the table on Tuesday (April 26) with a win over Royal Challengers Bangalore at the MCA Stadium in Pune. The Royals have 10 points from 7 matches but a win will put them level with Gujarat Titans on 12 points with only NRR separating the two.
Faf du Plessis-led RCB, on the other hand, can also reach 12 points if they manage to defeat Sanju Samson’s side on Tuesday. However, their poor NRR will prevent them from going to No. 1 position.
