IPL 2021 Points Table Rules
Every team out of the eight teams aims to end up in the top-four slot. Which is a necessary condition if they want to proceed for the Playoffs. There is an additional incentive for the teams finishing in the top-two slot as they get two opportunities to make their place directly into the finals.
The standings of every member of the competition are chosen depending on the number of points each team has. In an event of a tie, the Net Run Rate is utilized as a sudden consideration. The Net Run Rate is determined by ‘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.
A group is granted 2 points for success and 0 for a loss, and the points are shared equally in situations. Where the game is either abandoned or ends abruptly with no results.
