IPL table: DC rise to top spot after big win over PBKS

Ahmedabad, Delhi Capitals (DC) rose to the top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) table after their comprehensive win over Punjab Kings (PBKS).

DC’s reign may, however, turn out to be a short one for now if third-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), who are two points behind the Capitals, end up beating Kolkata Knight Riders by a big margin on Monday.

Punjab Kings (PBKS), meanwhile, are sixth on six points as they fell further away from the top three.

DC have a net run rate (NRR) of +0.547, which is higher than that of RCB’s -0.171 but lower than second-placed Chennai Super Kings’ +1.263.

PBKS, meanwhile, have an NRR of -0.368 which is lower than that of fifth-placed Rajasthan Royals (-0.190), who are also on six points. PBKS could fall to seventh if Kolkata Knight Riders, who are on four points, beat RCB on Monday.
