164/5 (20.0/20)
Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Delhi Capitals by 7 wickets
Right then. That spells the end of the group stages in the Indian T20 League, 2021. We now know for sure which 4 teams have qualified for the playoffs - Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, and Kolkata. Qualifier 1 will be contested between the top two sides, which will be Delhi and Chennai, and it will be played on Sunday, 10th October 2021 at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT), but, you know the drill, don't you? Join us early for the build-up. Until then, cheers and see ya!
SRIKAR BHARAT HAS BEEN NAMED AS THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH! Who else could it have been? What a top knock from him and he is the reason that Bangalore have won this. Well deserved.
Delhi will be very, very disappointed that they have not ended up on the winning side. The game looked to be in control for them when they removed de Villiers, but fate has something else in store for them as Bharat and Maxwell tore through their bowlers and scripted home a famous victory. They started well as three wickets were taken in a timely manner with Anrich Nortje bowling very well and taking 2 early wickets. Avesh Khan, too, just conceded 4 runs in his first spell. But, then, they could not contain and break the stand between the two champs. Over-after-over, the duo of Bharat and Maxwell kept upping the ante and the Delhi bowlers could not find a way to stop them. Their fielding has to be questioned too as they dropped the catch of Maxwell. Had that catch been taken, the story might have been very different. It seemed like the pressure got to Khan towards the end too, as with 6 needed off the final ball, he first served a wide, and then, bowled a full toss, which made it easier for Bharat to dispatch.
Bangalore started off in dismal fashion as they lost their openers inside the first 3 overs. A golden duck for Devdutt Padikkal and skipper, Virat Kohli failed to get going again. AB de Villiers was sent up the order and he took time to settle in, but with Bharat, he stitched a 49-run stand, but, while looking for a biggie, de Villiers holed out. The responsibility to take Bangalore home fell on the duo of Srikar Bharat and Glenn Maxwell. They took their time and played calmly for a couple of overs, but, they turned the switch soon after. Both of them started taking the bowlers on. Bharat got to his fifty and Maxwell supported him superbly. Life was injected into the run chase again and both kept the required rate in check. A 100-run alliance was stitched between these two and the game went to the last over. With 5 needed off the last ball, it looked like Bangalore would fall short but Bharat had other plans as he spanked the final delivery over the boundary ropes to help Bangalore win by 7 wickets.
WOW! What a game we have been treated to! A humdinger between the top placed team and the team that was placed 3rd. The game went right down to the wire, right to the last ball of the game, and Bharat kept his nerve and took his team past the line. Sure, it does not matter in the grand scheme of the tournament but with both these teams making the playoffs, it will surely be a psychological boost for Bangalore. Take a bow, Srikar Bharat! What a champion knock!

Strategic Time-Out! What a game this is turning out to be. It looked like Delhi have choked Bangalore out of this game with their bowling in the middle overs, but the duo of Bharat and Maxwell have cut loose and have had a couple of great last 4-5 overs. Now, they need 46 more in the last 4 overs and would be looking to go hard and win their final group game. Delhi have a fantastic death bowling assortment that includes Nortje, Khan, and Rabada. Let's see where this game goes. Kagiso Rabada (3-0-22-0) is back into the attack.

Anrich Nortje To Virat Kohli OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Nortje strikes yet again and Kohli's hot and cold tournament continues on! He looked to force the issue but that proves to be his undoing. Both the Bangalore openers have walked off for tame scores. A pacy delivery from the Protea, at 146 clicks, around off, on a length, Virat Kohli looks to whip this to the leg side but the ball catches the leading edge. It goes high in the air behind the mid-wicket region. Kagiso Rabada calls for it and he has a safe pair of hands to send the captain of Bangalore back.

Avesh Khan To Virat Kohli
A loud shout for LBW but it is turned down! On a length, around middle and leg, Virat Kohli looks to flick this to the leg side but he misses and gets hit on the knee roll. A very loud appeal by Khan and the Delhi players for LBW but the umpire is unmoved. Khan has a word with Pant, but the skipper does not take the review. Looked to be sliding down leg.
Avesh Khan will bowl from the other end.

Anrich Nortje To Devdutt Padikkal OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! A golden duck for Devdutt Padikkal! Not how he would have envisioned playing in this game. This was catching practice for Ashwin in the deep and the first wicket falls in the very first over for Bangalore. Anrich Nortje hurls across a short ball, around off, Devdutt Padikkal sways away and plays the ramp shot towards third man pretty late. It is not too well timed and Ravichandran Ashwin does not move an inch to pouch this.
