My IPL Support Algorithm (Redux)

Last year, I was jobless enough to present a programming version with suitable cultural and historical references thrown in. This time, it's a bit sooner, and it's more like the laws of robotics.

Hereby presenting:

Law I: Deccan Chargers (DC) win all their games.
Law II: Mumbai Indians (MI) win all their games (except when it conflicts with Law I)
Law III: Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) win all their games (except when it conflicts with Laws I & II)
Law IV: The team with the lower net run rate wins its game (except when it conflicts with Laws I, II and III)

Very tidy.

Forthcoming Results

KKR wins CSK v KKR (IV)
RR wins RR v RCB (IV)
CSK wins CSK v DD (IV)
DC wins KXIP v DC (I)
MI wins RCB v MI (II)
KKR wins KKR v RR (IV)
DC wins DD v DC (I)
MI wins KKR v MI (II)

Points Table


MI - 14 - 11 - 22
DC - 14 - 8 - 16
RR & KKR - 14 - 7 - 14

Sad, sorry, losers

RCB - 14 - 6 - 12
DD - 14 - 6 - 12
CSK - 14 - 6 - 12

Fair Play Award, hugs from Preity
KXIP - 14 - 5 - 10

Thank you, thank you.

P.S. Forgot the Zeroeth Law

DC will (do you hear that, Adam? WILLLLLLLLL) play VOLCANO VENU!!!!!!!!!!!!
