New Delhi. The new teams of IPL 2022 are Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans. The top of the IPL points table is occupied by Gujarat Titans and second place is occupied by Lucknow Super Giants. Mumbai Indians, who have suffered a sixth consecutive defeat, are at the bottom. After an unbeaten century from captain Lokesh Rahul (103 runs), Lucknow Super Giants defeated Mumbai Indians by 18 runs on the back of brilliant bowling by Avesh Khan. Mumbai are still waiting for their first win of the season and this is the first time the team has lost six matches in a row. Due to this, Mumbai also reached the verge of being out of the race for the playoffs.
