How the Net RunRate for each team is calculated in IPL?

I can’t understand the above concept clearly.

The net run rate is calculated with the below formula:

NRR = ((Total runs scored by team)/(Total overs played by team))
        -
      ((Total runs scored against team)/(Total overs played against team))

Total runs -> This is straight forward. It is the score that a team scores (batting) and is scored against (bowling) in the whole tournament.

Total overs -> This is the total overs played (batting) and delivered (bowling) by a team. This one has a catch though.

  • If a team is all out within the stipulated 20 overs, then the overs considered for NRR calculation is 20 itself and not the actual overs played.
  • If a team chases down a target before 20 overs, then the actual overs is considered for NRR calculation.

Find below the current RCB Net Run Rate (0.47) and the break-up of how the figure has been arrived at considering all the games that they have played till now.
