Hardik Pandya’s captaincy Gujarat Titans at the forefront of IPL 2023 points table
If we look at the points table of IPL 2023, then it is known that at this time the champion team of IPL 2022 Gujarat Titans is leading. The team has played only eight of its matches so far and has won six matches and secured 12 points. The playoff race is now looking very easy for this team. If you look at the statistics so far, it is known that the team which earns 16 points in the league stage, they enter the playoffs. That means, even if Gujarat Titans win only two out of their remaining six matches, their place will remain in the top 4. After this, the team of LSG captained by KL Rahul is at number two. Who has won five of his eight matches and the team has 10 points. That is, out of the remaining six matches, the team needs to win only three. The place of this team also seems almost certain in the playoffs. After this, the team of Rajasthan Royals, captained by Sanju Samson, is still maintaining its place at the top. The team has played its nine matches and has ten points after winning five matches. That is, now RR has only five matches left. Out of this, the team will have to win at least three matches. But the good thing for Rajasthan Royals is that the net run rate of the team is very good, that is, if its points are equal to any other team then on the basis of net run rate the team will be ahead. Which would be very interesting. On the other hand, the team of Chennai Super Kings, captained by SS Dhoni, has won five out of nine matches and has scored ten points and the team will have to win three out of five matches at any cost.

Punjab Kings beat RCB in the points table
Apart from these four top teams, now the Punjab Kings team has reached number five. The team has won five of its nine matches and also has ten points, but Punjab Kings have a low net run rate, so the team is running at the bottom of the ten-point teams. On the other hand, if we talk about RCB, it has now reached number six. The team has won four of its eight matches and has eight points. That is, RCB will have to win at least four of the remaining six matches. Otherwise, his case will depend on other teams. The team of Mumbai Indians is also now seen staking their claim for the playoffs. The team has won four out of eight matches and has eight points. That is, he too will have to win at least four of the remaining six matches. On the other hand, if we talk about KKR, SRH and Delhi Capitals, now it seems very difficult for these three teams to reach the top 4 in the playoff race. Provided that the team goes on winning all its matches from here on. But it is visible that the points table has become so interesting that neither any team can be ruled out completely nor can it be said that the team will reach the playoffs.
