IPL Points Table 2023: Updated After LSG vs  DC Match 3

After today’s doubleheader, the points table has started to look clearer than yesterday. Once the remaining four teams play their first games tomorrow, we will have a full-fledged points table with real-time positions of all teams. 

Punjab Kings defeat KKR in the first game

The first game of today’s doubleheader was between Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders. Batting first, Punjab scored a huge total of 191 for the loss of five wickets after Bhanuka Rajapaksa smashed KKR bowlers to all parts of the ground. Rajapaksa scored his maiden IPL fifty and ended his innings at 50 off 32 balls. Tim Southee picked up 2 wickets for KKR but was very expensive as he leaked 54 runs. 

In response, KKR could only manage 146 runs in 16 overs before rain stopped play. Duckworth Lewis came into play and Punjab won the game by 7 runs. With this win, Punjab have taken the third spot in the points table whereas Kolkata have slipped down to the seventh. 

Lucknow take the number 1 spot

Lucknow Super Giants defeated the Delhi Capitals by 50 runs in the second game to take the number one spot. Gujarat Titans have slipped down to the second because of Lucknow’s heavy Net Run Rate (NRR). Kolkata Knight Riders, Chennai Super Kings, and Delhi Capitals have taken the bottom three positions. However, the table will get clearer once the remaining 4 teams play their first games tomorrow. 

Here’s the updated points table after GT vs CSK Match 1:
