IPL 2020 Points Table Rules

As mentioned earlier, the primary target of each and every team is to end up in one of the top four spots of the IPL points table. It is a secondary goal to be among the top two as those teams get an extra opportunity to be in the Finals.

Standings are decided on the number of points each team has. If more than one team is tied with the same number of points, the ‘Net Run Rate’ (NRR) is taken into consideration. The rules for gaining points are as follows:

  1. A team gets 2 points for a win.
  2. A team gets 1 point in case the game is abandoned or ends abruptly as No Result.
  3. A team gets 0 points in case of a loss.

The NRR of a team is extremely crucial as the IPL Standings get too close as the tournament progresses and often a few number of teams are tied on points. The NRR of a team is calculated as ‘the number of runs scored by the team to the number of overs faced’ to ‘the number of runs conceded by the team to the number of overs bowled’ in the same tournament.

IPL Standings Trivias

  1. No team has ever progressed to Playoffs with less than 12 points in the history of IPL.
  2. Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) and Deccan Chargers (now defunct) are the only 2 teams to have accumulated 4 points in an IPL Season which is the lowest points accumulated by any team.
  3. Kolkata Knight Riders and Deccan Chargers (now defunct) are the only teams which have never finished 1st in the Indian Premier League Points table but have gone on to win the tournament.
  4. Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) is the only team in IPL history to finish 1st in the points table but never win the title. They have done it twice.
  5. Chennai Super Kings is the only team to have qualified for the Playoffs in every season (except the two years they were banned).
