IPL 2022 Points Table:
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) is back in the driver’s seat after a good win. With 16 points from 14 league stage matches, RCB is presently fourth in the points rankings. Even after the victory, RCB does not control its destiny.
The Delhi Capitals are in fifth place in the points table and have one game left against the Mumbai Indians, who are in last place. If Delhi defeats Mumbai Indians, they will overtake RCB and qualify for the playoffs on the basis of their higher net run rate; however, if the match between MI and DC goes the other way, Delhi would be ousted from the competition.
Along with Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings, and Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings have been eliminated from the playoff chase.
IPL 2022 Orange Cap:
After his stunning 44 runs from 38 deliveries, RCB captain Faf du Plessis moved up four places to fourth. De Plessis has already scored 443 runs in 14 IPL 2022 matches.
Following his spectacular 62-run innings in 47 deliveries, Gujarat captain Hardik Pandya saw minimal improvement in his rankings. With a total score of 413 in 13 matches, Pandya broke into the top ten and is presently ranked seventh.

Yuzvendra Chahal, on the other hand, has 24 IPL 2022 wickets in 13 games, but his economy rate is slightly higher than Wanindu Hasaranga’s.
