Mumbai: Punjab Kings added two points to their kitty after outplaying Royal Challengers Bangalore in all departments in an IPL 2022 clash at the Brabourne Stadium on Friday night. PBKS batters Johnny Bairstow’s (66 off 29) and Liam Livingstone (70 off 42) put in starring performances as PBKS put up a total of 209 for the loss of 9 wickets in 20 overs.

Points table:

Gujarat Titans are still the only team to secure a playoffs spot, and they lead the table with 18 points from 12 matches. Lucknow Super Giants, with 16 points, are second and are followed by Rajasthan Royals, who have 14 from 12 matches. RCB stay fourth, with 14 points from 13 matches.

Delhi Capitals, with 12 points from as many matches, are fifth, while Punjab Kings moved up to sixth, with as many points as Delhi.

SunRisers Hyderabad are seventh, with 10 points, but they have played just 11 matches so far.

Kolkata Knight Riders are eighth with 10 points from 12 matches, while Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians are the bottom two, with eight and six points respectively.

Purple Cap:

Talking about the Purple Cap race, we have a new holder there as RCB’s Wanindu Hasaranga equalled RR’s Yuzvendra Chahal’s tally of 23 wickets. Chahal took just 12 games to get there while Hasaranga took 13. However, due to better economy, Hasaranga was handed the Purple Cap after the RCB vs PBKS game. PBKS’ Kagiso Rabada and RCB’s Harshal Patel also made their way into the top five highest wicket-takers of the season after their brilliant performances in the last game.

Orange Cap:

Orange Cap still belongs to RR’s Jos Buttler while RCB skipper du Plessis went past PBKS’ Liam Livingstone to entre the top five highest run-getters of the season.
