When Rajasthan Royals take on Royal Challengers Bangalore, they will keep an eye on the IPL Points Table which has five teams battling for the first slot.

Before Match 23, Delhi Daredevils are comfortably the No. 1 team with 8 points and Net Run Rate of +0.681. Rajasthan, who also have eight points but lag in Net Run Rate (NRR) with +0.547, are the number two team. However, Delhi have the edge as so far they have played a match lesser the 2008 champions.

Nevertheless, a win today will see Rajasthan moving up. Delhi has the opportunity to reclaim the berth tomorrow when they play Pune Warriors, who also have eight points along with Kolkata Knight Riders and defending champions Chennai Super Kings. These three teams are ranked 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively on the basis of Net Run Rate.

Mumbai Indians, Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers are 6th, 7th and 8th with six points each and ranked likewise due to difference in their NRR.

Deccan Chargers are reeling at the bottom of the table. Having played five matches, they are yet to open their account with a win.
