IPL 2022 has in store new teams, changed team compositions and a different format. But that won’t necessarily impact the point system.
This year, the format is going to be a bit different, in which the 10 teams will be divided into two groups – Group A and B.
group A – Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals, Lucknow Super Giants
Group B – Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Punjab Kings, Gujarat Titans
Now, within groups, each team will play against each other twice, as well as twice against the team of the same rank in the other group. Then each team in each group will play once against all the other teams in the other group. This brings the total to 14 (8+5+1) matches for all teams.
On Friday, LSG beat PBKS by 20 points to clinch their sixth victory and move into third place in the points table.
Here is the list of current holders of orange and purple caps:
Orange cap holder: Jos Buttler (RR) – 499 runs
Purple Cap Holder: Yuzvendra Chahal (RR) – 18 counters
