IPL 2022 Points Table in Hindi: Kolkata Knight Riders still occupies the first place in the points table, but there are constant changes in the second and third places.
The most exciting match so far in the IPL 2022 season was seen on Friday 8 April at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, where Gujarat Titans (Gujarat Titans) Rahul Tewatia’s sixes in the last two balls (Rahul Tewatia 2 Sixes vs PBKS) with the help of Punjab Kings defeated by 6 wickets. With this, Punjab has made a strong move up in the points table, winning only the first three matches of the debut season. Under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya, the Gujarat team has achieved 6 points after their three matches and has reached the second place.

Gujarat again in second place
With this win, Gujarat has 6 points in 3 matches and has tied Kolkata Knight Riders and Lucknow Super Giants in this matter. However, Kolkata is still at number one due to Net Run Rate (NRR), while Gujarat has got the advantage of slightly lower NRR of Lucknow and has again made its place at number two. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals has slipped one place to the fourth position.
RCB gain from Punjab’s loss
On the other hand, Punjab suffered a loss and Royal Challengers Bangalore benefited from its loss. Punjab has 4 points from 4 matches, which is equal to Bangalore, but Punjab’s NRR has come down from Bangalore and this has benefited RCB, who have now dropped to fifth place in Punjab, while Punjab slipped to sixth is.
