Rajasthan Royals got back into the reckoning for an Indian Premier League playoff place after defeating Chennai Super Kings by seven wickets at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Monday. RR completely dominated the three-time IPL champions as they chased down the target in just 17.3 overs with Jos Buttler scoring 70 runs off 48 balls. The win led to some reshuffling in the bottom-half of the points table. With the victory over CSK, RR jumped from the last position to the fifth spot with eight points from 10 games.
Meanwhile, CSK dropped down to the bottom spot as they have now lost seven games out 10. MS Dhoni-led CSK now have an almost impossible task to qualify for the IPL 2020 playoffs.
Mumbai Indians failed to topple Delhi Capitals’ from the top position in the Indian Premier League 2020 points table after losing out in the Super Over to Kings XI Punjab on Sunday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium.
