IPL Points table

Kings XI Punjab 7 5 2 10 +0.442 $76 million
Daredevils 6 4 2 8 +0.856 $84 million
Super Kings 7 4 3 8 -0.005 $91 million
Knight Riders 6 2 4 4 +0.537 $75 million
Decan Chargers 7 2 5 4 -0.011 $107 million
Mumbai Indians 6 2 4 4 -0.982 $112 million
Royal Challengers 6 2 4 4 -1.426 $106 million

Irony is, the expensive franchises are racing to the bottom and the cost-effective franchises are racing to the top. Check out for Rajastan Royals. No big names, no big players but its in the top half. Did the big corporate house missed a trick or two? 

What is really confusing is the way net run rate is calculated. Sony Max shows a completely different set of run rates. IPLT20.com shows a completely different set of run rates and rediff.com shows a completely different run rates. I am following IPLT20.com.
