  • Live streaming of Delhi Daredevils vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, IPL 2018 match at the Ferozeshah Kotla in Delhi is available online

Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers produced a batting masterclass as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) defeated Delhi Daredevils by five wickets in their Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter here on Saturday.

While Kings XI slumped to their third successive loss, RCB improved upon their net run rate by sealing the victory in 8.1 overs. Their association lasted 10.4 overs, and by the time Kohli was dismissed in the 14th over for a 40-ball 70, Bangalore needed just 46 runs to win.

Finch struck a handsome six over deep midwicket to a short ball off Ali in the 12th over. The dew factor also played out in the second half of the game, just like the other night. KL Rahul and Chris Gayle have fired throughout the tournament and the rest had not contributed much. No other batsman has come up to share the responsibility. In all, Umesh bowled 15 short or short-of-good-length balls in his three-over first spell, and fetched two wickets in doing so.

R Ashwin: It's a ground that's hard to defend, would have bowled first as well.

WICKETS! This is just bad.

RCB captain Kohli won the toss and chose to bowl. A well flighted delivery that turned into a yorker as Stoinis failed to pick up the length.

Virat Kohli is a cricketer of rare instinct and intensity. Mohamed Siraj gets his first wicket.

KXIP though had started well with the in-form Lokesh Rahul going all guns blazing. Gayle too fell in a similar fashion, with Mohammad Siraj gobbling up the top edge at deep square leg. In the match match, CSK beat RCB by 5 wickets. Umesh broke the back bone by removing Rahul and Gayle in one over and then returned to nip out Tye, 4-0-23-3 Mohit Sharma, right handed bat, comes to the crease.

Dropped! How costly will this prove.

Off the last ball of the same over, Umesh struck again and this time his victim was none other than Chris Gayle (18).

Preview: It's the battle of two teams, who are eyeing for play-off birth. With Delhi out of contention, there is an intense race between Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore to seal the remaining two spots.

There was pressure on RCB, considering the match was a must-win for both the teams to keep the outside chances of qualifying for the playoffs alive. Patel is run out giving RCB a mere target of 89 runs.

Both the teams come into the game with contrasting fortunes.

But as soon as the South African got back strike, he sealed the game in stunning style with consecutive sixes off Trent Boult, inflicting further misery on Delhi.

Kohli also took to Instagram to express his excitement of batting alongside De Villiers. 11 runs off the over. Deviating from the usual, RCB's success was marked by a bowling attack that derailed Punjab's inning.

After a long wait, Moeen Ali finally made his IPL debut for RCB against Sunrisers Hyderabad a week ago on Monday, and stayed in the side for the crucial win over Delhi. 15 runs scored. 10:00 pm: RCB 39/0 after 4 overs A tight over by Andrew Tye. Today's game is scheduled to be played at Holkar Stadium located in Indore, Madhya Pradesh.
