After their win against Kolkata Knight Riders on Wednesday, Virat Kohli’s team has replaced Mumbai Indians and taken the second spot in the points table. The Royal Challengers Bangalore is now just below Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2020 points table. The win against KKR helped RCB to improve their NRR from -0.096 to +0.182.
