For Charity, five IPL teams were competing in cricket where they face each other exactly once. After the tournament, the following is the point table.

DareDevils 6
SuperKings 5
Royals 4
Sunrisers 2
Riders ?

How many points did Riders end up with?

3

Possible matches
DareDevils vs SuperKings
DareDevils vs Royals

SuperKings vs Royals

Therefore there is a total of 10 matches. After every match, 2 points were distributed between two teams as:
Case1: One of team wins:
Winning team will get 2 points.

Case2: Match ends up in a draw
Both teams will share a point.

Therefore 10*2 = 20 points should be the sum of all team points.

6 + 5 + 4 + 2 + ? =20
? = 3
