The first match of Sunday’s double header saw the Chennai Super Kings, who have had their worst season ever this time, thrash Kings XI Punjab by 9 wickets to end their campaign on a positive note. The result also meant that Punjab were knocked out of the playoff race. Chennai’s win, which took their points tally to 12 points, also made IPL 2020 officially the most competitive IPL season ever. The ongoing edition in the UAE has now become the most evenly contested IPL ever with the bottom team winning six games for the first time. Rajasthan Royals who have fallen to eighth place after losing to Kolkata in Sunday’s second match will in all probability finish as the wooden spoon holders. But they also finish with as many as 12 points. This is the first time that the team finishing last has as many as 12 points, proving that the 2020 edition is the most evenly contested IPL season ever. Though currently the Mumbai Indians might look like very strong contenders for the title, the extremely competitive nature of the season will perhaps ensure that the high voltage drama continues once the playoffs begin as well.
