Kolkata Knight Riders were looking to join Gujarat Titans at the top of the IPL 2022 points table but a massive seven-wicket loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad meant that they have slipped from 2nd to 4th place on the Points Table on Friday (April 15). SRH posted their third successive win to join five other teams on 6 points from 5 matches – including KKR.

SRH, however, remain in the 7th spot due to a poor NRR of -0.196 but a win with more than two overs to spare against KKR was a big boost to their run-rate. KKR also have six points but they have played in six matches so far and have a NRR of 0.223.
