Match Ended   
160/8 (20.0/20)
Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Chennai Super Kings by 13 runs
Right then! That is all we have from this match. The action continues on Thursday, the 5th of May as an inconsistent Delhi side takes on Hyderabad with the latter looking to snatch back their place in the top four. That match will begin at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT) but our build-up will start much earlier. Do join us then. Take care and goodbye!
HARSHAL PATEL (4-0-35-3) IS THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH. Says that he didn't start well in the first over as he was trying to bowl the slower ones but floated a few under the bat and they went to the boundary. Tells that he is trying to concede lesser boundaries and is looking to correct his mistakes, and better his sequencing. Feels he was more effective in the first half of the season and is looking to regain that form. Regarding changing his ends for the left-handers, he replies that it was more to do with the dimension of the ground. Shares that at the top of your mark, you need to have clarity of thought as a bowler on what you want to do. Talks about the mind games by saying that when the batters are expecting slower ones, he tries to deceive them by bowling the hard-length deliveries and yorkers. Further says that he has not bowled them enough this season but would look to bowl them in the latter half of the tournament.
Faf du Plessis, the captain of Chennai, says they needed this win and the guys were having a chat before the match about it. Reckons that they are heading in the right direction with the bat and the bowling has been consistent. Adds that 165 was par and anything above that was defendable. Mentions that after the Powerplay, they got two quick wickets and that changed the energy in the field. Adds that it helps to have experienced players when there's some advice needed and the senior-player group helps him. Mentions that they need to keep improving in the batting department and the top-order needs to fire more as they have enough big hitters down the order and they don't want the middle order to be under pressure. Wants to keep improving in the batting department and play positively. Regarding any thought of improving the NRR, Faf replies that once they get the opportunity in a game, they will think about it but right now winning the games is the priority.
Glenn Maxwell is down for a quick chat. He says that they are over the moon. Adds that it was a good bowling performance, the wicket was tacky but they did a great job. Regarding his bowling, Maxwell shares that the way Moeen and Jadeja bowled, it showed that the finger spinners have some assistance from the pitch so he tried to put it in the right areas and it helped him to have a couple of lefties out there. Further tells that the round the wicket angle for the right-handers was to cramp them up for room. Hopes to ride this winning momentum and feels that they are going in the right direction.
MS Dhoni, the captain of Chennai, says they did well to restrict them to 173. Feels they were up to the mark but were let down by the batsmanship, as they needed more partnerships. Says they lost wickets at regular intervals and the shot selection was the problem. Mentions that at times you need to curb your instincts and MS feels that had they batted slightly better, they would have got lesser runs to score at the backend. Shares that the pitch kept on getting better and had they kept wickets in hand, it could have been different. Further says that they need to keep looking at what went wrong. Tells that they were not lacking much confidence in this game, in any department. States that it's easy to get distracted with how many points you have. Opines that it's all about the process, if you keep doing that right, the points table will take care of itself.
Bangalore might have just turned a new leaf after this win. They had runs on the board but didn't start well with the ball but then Shahbaz Ahmed and Glenn Maxwell turned it on and dragged Bangalore back in the game by picking up wickets. Runs still continued to flow but timely wickets especially towards the end from Josh Hazlewood and Harshal Patel kept them ahead of the game. Patel bowled a bit of a nervy last over but thankfully for him, the opposition had too many runs to get in the final over. Stay tuned for the interviews.
Chennai got off to just the start they needed but then Ruturaj Gaikwad and Robin Uthappa fell in quick succession. Devon Conway carried on and was timing the ball sweetly but the wickets kept on tumbling. Devon Conway got to fifty and then got out. After that Moeen Ali who was set, couldn't hang around much either. MS Dhoni had too much to do on his own and this time he couldn't turn the tide in his side's favour. The tailenders did hit a couple of lusty blows but it was a bridge too far. This loss might just prove to be the final nail in the Chennai coffin.
Finally, finally, Bangalore get one over their rivals Chennai and what an important win this could be in the context of their season! It is generally their batters who win matches but the bowling unit stepped up this evening to guide Bangalore back into the top four.
