177/9 (20.0/20)
Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Rajasthan Royals by 10 wickets
That is it from this game! A fantastic evening for Bangalore sees them regain their top spot at the top of the league. Rajasthan move to the foot of the table with this humiliating loss. The action in the league continues on Friday, 23rd April as Punjab takes on defending champions, Mumbai. That game begins at 1930 local (1400 GMT). Make sure you join us for that one. Till then, goodbye and take care!
For his majestic ton, no prizes for guessing, Devdutt Padikkal is named the Man of the Match. Padikkal says that it has been special and all he could do was wait for his turn. Adds all he could think when he had Covid-19 was to come out here and make the most of the opportunity. Padikkal says that the ball was coming on well and when one gets into a partnership like that it is easier. Padikkal says that there was no pressure when he was approaching as he just wanted the team to win. Adds that if he did not get a ton he would not have been sad as the team won. Padikkal says that the conversation was clear. Adds that they click well and tells that rotation of strike is important and that is what they focused on.
Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli, says that it was an outstanding innings from Padikkal. Tells that there was talk about his acceleration but he has answered them. Tells he is a great talent and one to watch out for the future. Adds the wicket was great to bat but also says Padikkal played the right shots in the right areas. Kohli says T20 is a game of partnership and tells that when one gets the start the other should rotate strike and do the job and that is what he did. Tells his role was clear to hold from one end and rotate the strike. Kohli says Padikkal told him to finish it off but he told him he would give him the strike as he feels he deserved to get the ton as he played a flawless innings. Adds Padikkal told him he will get a lot more tons in the future but Kohli says he told him to say that after getting his first. Kohli says that they do not have many stand-out names in bowlers but they have effective bowlers. Adds they have depth in their bowling. Adds they have been one of the best bowling sides in the death this season and tells they take pride in that. Adds that they saved 30 runs more and feels they deserve a lot of credit. Kohli tells the fans not to get overexcited as they are being professionals and taking one game at a time as they know that this is a long tournament and the momentum can be lost.
Stay tuned as we hear from Kohli and hear from the Man of the Match, which we all know who it will be.
Earlier in the evening, in a belter of a track, Rajasthan were put to bat. They struggled to get going and found themselves stuttering at 43/4. The 2008 champions did make a recovery from that slump as they managed to get to a respectable total of 177 on the back of valuable contributions from Dube and Tewatia. That total though was just not good enough on the batting paradise of Wankhede. Siraj was the star with the ball as he did the damage early on and finished with 3/27 from his 4. Harshal Patel added 3 more as he moved ahead in the race for the highest wicket-taker but he was expensive.
Happy and smiling Glenn Maxwell is caught for a chat. He says that he is happy with the team's performance. Adds that the opening stand between Kohli and Padikkal sealed the chase for them. Mentions that he has not taught Padikkal the reverse sweep as he has not had any word with him. Further says that the players are helping the senior guys with the leadership style.
Rajasthan skipper, Sanju Samson, admits they batted well. Tells they came back well with the bat after losing wickets but tells Bangalore played well. Samson says they need to do some homework and have some honest review and come back stronger. Samson says they need to review and ask some questions to themselves but he is hopeful to make a comeback. Samson says that it is about showing heart and character as that is what this sport is about.
A forgetful evening for Rajasthan bowlers. They just did not have any answer as Padikkal and Kohli went after them. They looked out of ideas. Nothing much to actually talk about their bowling. The bowlers got a real pasting as barring Chetan Sakariya every other bowler went for over 9.5 rpo. Just a horror evening for the Rajasthan bowlers, an evening they would like to forget as quickly as possible.
Chasing 178, Bangalore never looked in any doubt. The evening belonged to Devdutt Padikkal. The youngster looked majestic from ball one. He played a gem of a knock along with his skipper as the youngster scored a tremendous unbeaten 101. Kohli initially struggled for timing but with Padikkal taking the pressure off him, he slowly found his groove and got his first fifty of the season, finishing with an unbeaten 72!
Kohli's Bangalore have arrived in Mumbai in Bollywood style! They have bulldozed past Rajasthan with this thumping 10 wicket win and cruised their way back to the top of the table. If one was not believing in Bangalore's might this season, this win will surely make you believe. Rajasthan will now need to bounce back stronger from this demoralizing loss and they know they have been outplayed, outmuscled and outperformed in every facet of the game this evening.

Mustafizur Rahman To Devdutt Padikkal
FOUR! HUNDRED FOR PADIKKAL! What a knock this has been! A knock he will never forget ever in his life. He has been phenomenal from ball one and he has played  a gem of a knock here. He came into this tournament in sublime form. Did not start off this tournament well but now he has found his groove. Padikkal removes his helmet, raises his bat as all his teammates get on their feet and applaud this knock from this youngster. He then shares a big hug with his skipper. Kohli is as elated as Padikkal who is just soaking in all the applause. He becomes the second centurion of the season and he will look to carry this form for the rest of the season. Fullish ball around off, Padikkal creams his drive through covers to get his maiden ton in the league.

Chetan Sakariya To Devdutt Padikkal
Better from Sakariya! The youngster does not deter away from his length. Hits the good length area on middle and leg. It nips back in to the southpaw. Padikkal looks to flick but misses and gets hit high on the pad. Samson appeals from behind the stump but Sakariya is not interested and neither is the umpire.

Shreyas Gopal To Virat Kohli
Wrong 'un to finish the over. The last ball is short and it is the googly. Kohli uses his feet nicely to punch it to mid on off his back foot. 8 off the first over.

Shreyas Gopal To Virat Kohli
SIX! BANG! Kohli and Bangalore get off the mark with a cracking six! Excellent use of the feet from the Bangalore skipper. He dances down the track, gets to the pitch of the ball and deposits Gopal straight over him for a biggie.
