For a while, no one was even sure whether it would be possible to hold the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League but now that it is finally happening, the focus has quickly shifted to the on-field action.
The IPL 2020 is different mainly because of the level of preparedness that teams are coming into the tournament with and that means some teams may take longer than others to hit their stride. Either which way, the league phase always throws up interesting sequences of play.
Some teams start well and lose momentum by the time the playoffs come along. Others find their rhythm later but carry themselves to the title. Along the way, we’ll see some youngsters make their mark and some veterans rise up from the ashes.
And just in the first 10 matches, the tournament had witnessed two Super Overs, a record run-chase and so much more action. Later on, on one Sunday, the tournament saw three Super Overs too with MI vs KXIP going into a double super over.
The race of playoffs is now guaranteed to go till the final match.
After 56 matches, here is what the IPL 2020 league table looks like:
|Q||Royal Challengers Bangalore||14||7||7||-0.172||14|
|5||Kolkata Knight Riders||14||7||7||-0.214||14|
|6||Kings XI Punjab||14||6||8||-0.162||12|
|7||Chennai Super Kings||14||6||8||-0.455||12|
