Man of the match AB de Villiers said, “It’s one of those nights when you see the ball well. The last two innings I wasn’t hitting it too well, but today I felt it coming off the middle, watched it nice and early, bought myself that extra split second to make decisions and that’s when I need to cash in. When you do get on top of the bowler, you have to take him down. This is the best crowd in the world, I love playing here(Bangalore).”

Royal Challengers Bangalore won the toss and invited delhi daredevils batsmen to start their inning, but the start for DD was not up to the mark as their opening batsmen Jason Roy and Gautam Gambhir got out by scoring only 5 and 3 runs respectively.

It was Rishabh Pant’s inning which helped delhi daredevils to reach the score 174 runs, at one point which were looking around 150 runs. Rishabh Pant scored 85 runs from 48 balls by hitting 6 fours and 7 sixes in his inning.
