Delhi Capitals (DC) have failed to move from the bottom of the IPL 2023 Points Table even after posting their second-successive win in the T20 League, defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by seven runs in match no. 34 in Hyderabad on Monday. It was a clash between the two bottom-placed sides in IPL 2023 but SRH continue to just stay ahead although they are level on points with DC after their fifth loss of the season.
Both DC and SRH now have 4 points from 7 matches in IPL 2023 with 2 wins and five losses so far. However, DC’s net run-rate (NRR) of -0.961 continues to remain below SRH’s -0.725. Four-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK), led by MS Dhoni, continue to be on top of the Points Table with 10 points from 7 matches with 5 wins.
Defending IPL champions Gujarat Titans can join CSK at the top on Tuesday night with 10 points as they take on five-time winners Mumbai Indians in Match No. 35 of the T20 league at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) are currently in second and third position with 8 points from 7 matches like GT.
