SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) jumped up to the fourth spot on the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 points table after securing a seven-run win over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday. With two wins from four matches, SRH are now level with five other teams; Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore with four points next to their name. Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Hyderabad secure the top four spots respectively thanks to their superior net run rate. For CSK, their poor run in this year’s IPL continues as they stay at the bottom of the table after failing to chase down a target of 165 runs.
