Right then, with that win, Bangalore have 12 points now, with 6 wins from 9 games. They have consolidated their position at No. 3 in the points table. For Rajasthan, it is the reverse, 6 losses in their 9 games. Things are looking pretty bleak for Rajasthan from here. They need to pull a rabbit out of the hat, if they are to reverse their fortunes. Right then, Super Saturday means double the excitement. Yes, Delhi are taking on Chennai at Sharjah. Switch tabs and catch our coverage of the same.
AB de Villiers is named the Man of the Match.
Earlier, after winning the toss, Smith opted to bat first in the searing Dubai heat. It was a good and yet tricky start for Rajasthan, as they started well but lost their top-order quickly. They recovered well to post 177 later on. Their bowlers kept a tight noose from the start, but allowed it to slip away later on. It went down to the wire but Bangalore pulled off a spectacular win.
For Rajasthan, well, they had Kohli's men in quicksand but failed to contain the de Villiers blitzkrieg, which allowed the game to slip away. It was a case of so-near, yet so far for them. Gopal, Tewatia and Tyagi bowled well, taking 1 apiece and were economical by the match's standards as well. Unadkat took a pounding and surprisingly, their key bowler, Jofra Archer, went wicketless and conceded close to 10.5 runs per over. They would be ruing this opportunity which was well within their reach, but slipped away, as they took their foot off the pedal.
Bangalore started off well, Padikkal opting to play second fiddle to Finch's hitting. But it was a short blitzkrieg as Finch departed after two biggies. And then, walked Kohli, to the middle. It was a very watchful passage, with Kohli going for his trademark 2s, while Padikkal lashed out at the loose deliveries and kept rotating the strike otherwise. The left-handed batsman later fell for a near-run-a-ball 35. Because he and the skipper started motoring late, the required rate started climbing up. Kohli followed Padikkal and two new batters out in the middle. Things got tough for Bangalore as there was some confusion between Mann and de Villiers, with either possibly running themselves out. In the end, they rode through that, de Villiers smashed a superb unbeaten 55 from 22 balls. Mann provided the required assistance at the other end and Bangalore cruised home with 2 balls to spare, sparing a Super Over prospect.
Bangalore, what a thumping win in the end, here in Dubai. Spoils our hopes for a Super Over but boy do we not love to see him finishing off in such fashion. A huge win for Kohli's men.

SIX! WOW! Game, set and match for AB de Villiers and Bangalore! What a shot to end the game! Archer goes for the yorker on the toes, de Villiers is deep inside his crease. He manages to get under the ball and whips it over deep mid-wicket for a biggie. BANGALORE WIN BY 7 WICKETS!

Jofra Archer to bowl the final over of the match. 10 runs needed. Can Bangalore get it? Or are we in for a Super Over? A long time since the last one.

Jaydev Unadkat To AB de Villiers
NOT OUT! Yes, de Villiers is very quick and safe! He would've had his heart in his mouth though when the ball went high in the air. Slower one outside off, de Villiers looks to slog it away but gets a top edge but the ball lands to safety. They go for the second run. Unadkat, the bowler, runs to the ball and fires the throw to the keeper who takes the bails off. The third umpire has been called in. Replays confirm de Villiers is safe.
Is ABD safe?
