IPL 2020 Points Table: IPL 13 Team Standings After SRH vs RCB Match | RCB went top of the table winning their tournament opener by 10 runs against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Dubai International Stadium, Dubai on Monday. After debutant Devdutt Padikkal and AB De Villiers, half-centuries powered Royal Challengers Bangalore to 163/5 before Yuzvendra Chahal and Navdeep Saini combined to halt the Sunrisers Hyderabad's early momentum provided by Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey. SRH collapsed from 89/1 to 153 all out.
Earlier in the day Padikkal (56 off 42, 8 fours) displayed his highly rated talent with a half-century before AB de Villiers (51 of 30) provided the much needed final flourish to take RCB to 163 for five after they were sent in to bat. Chasing 164 for a win, SRH were all out for 153 in 19.4 overs. The Sunrisers were on course for a comfortable chase with Jonny Bairstow (61 off 43) looking in ominous touch.
|1||Royal Challengers Bangalore||1||1||0||0||0.5||2|
|2||Chennai Super Kings||1||1||0||0||0.486||2|
|4||Kings XI Punjab||1||0||1||0||0||0|
|5||Kolkata Knight Riders||0||0||0||0||0||0|
Chahal (3/18) removed the Englishman and Vijay Shankar in successive balls in the 16th over to tilt the game decisively in his team's favour. Bairstow perished in his attempt to hoick Chahal out of the park while Shankar had no clue about the perfectly placed googly.
That double blow led to a batting collapse, exposing Sunrisers' inexperienced middle-order. Mitchell Marsh suffering an ankle injury while bowling meant he came at number 10 and could only last a ball. Pacer Navdeep Saini (2/25) and Shivam Dube (2/15) also returned tidy figures but Umesh Yadav was expensive for RCB yet again, leaking 48 runs in four overs.
The format of the league will stay the same as the previous year, with the top four teams progressing to the playoffs top two will get two chances to reach the final, while teams in the third and fourth spot will have to play a qualifier and then an eliminator to reach the final. Two points will be awarded for a win, one in case of a washout and no points if there is a tie. If the teams are on level points after the league stage ends, then the net run rate will decide who progresses to the next round
