IPL 2020(DUBAI): Sunrisers Hyderabad thrashed Delhi Capitals by 88 runs in game no. 47 of Indian Premier League 2020 on Tuesday to proceed to the sixth position in the IPL 2020 points table and keep their playoffs hopes alive.
Defending a massive 220-runs target, SRH bowled out DC for mere 131 runs in 19 overs. They now have 10 points from 12 games. On the flip side, DC slipped into the third position after the reduction and they now have 14 points from 12 games.
SRH vs DC: Delhi Capitals in trouble after losing their third successive game — check why?
- DC’s last two games are against the Mumbai Indians along with the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
- If the Capitals lose their past two games by 20 runs, their NRR will return to 0.125 and then even Kings XI will go beyond them.
- KXIP’s triumph over KKR in Sharjah means 16 points won’t guarantee a playoff spot for now being as up to five groups can potentially reach 16 points at this time.
- DC now should win the next two games to make sure of a playoff place. 1 Victory in the next couple of matches can create issues for DC.
KXIP / KKR will have to eliminate a minimal 1 game out of 2 for DC to qualify with just a win against the next two games.
Sixteen points will guarantee KXIP progress into the playoffs without any riders which means that they must win both their remaining games. But if they lose a few of the last two matches and finish 14, then things will probably get tricky.
At this stage, 7 teams can potentially finish on 14 or more points, while the Knight Riders along with the top three teams can get to 16 and eliminate the Kings XI. If it comes down to NRR, the Kings XI do not have much to worry about in the Knight Riders or the Rajasthan Royals, however, the Sunrisers Hyderabad possess a much better NRR, that will further improve if they win their last two games and finish 14.
However, the Sunrisers’ past two matches are against the top two groups — the Mumbai Indians, and the Royal Challengers Bangalore — about the points table. KKR is currently in fifth place after dropping the match. They also have 12 points from as many matches along with a net run rate of -0.479.
