"Don’t ask a man his salary" - Aakash Chopra's reply to a fan who asked him 1-match commentary salary
The 14th season of the Indian Premier League has well and truly lived up to the fans’ expectations so far. The cash-rich league is being played behind closed doors amid the coronavirus surge in India. The league has just started to raise the temperatures of the spectators who are watching the ongoing spectacle at home.
So far, Royal Challengers Bangalore were the only team to secure two wins in two games. Virat Kohli’s side got the better of Mumbai Indians in their first game and then they defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second game. Rightly so, they are on top of the points table with a Net Run Rate of +0.175.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians are second on the points table with 1 win and 1 defeat with a better Net Run Rate of +0.225. Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings are the only two teams who are yet to get off the mark with a win this season. Sunrisers lost their first two games while CSK lost their first game.
