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:
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.
