Indian Premier League 2023 has turned interesting like never before. There is no clear edge for any team at the moment. Every team is in contention for the playoffs even after 9 matches completed for each side. Particularly, the teams which are in the lower half of the points table have defeated the upper-half teams quite comfortably which is a surprising factor. There are currently 4 teams with 10 points each, 2 teams with 11 points each, and a team with 12 points in the table while three teams, Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunrisers Hyderabad, and Delhi Capitals are with six points each.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will play Kolkata Knight Riders today at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad where a win is extremely crucial for both the teams. A win here means they will still be in contention for the playoffs. While run rate will be a concerning factor as well.
