Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) beat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 61 runs in the 34th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) game in Pune. Disciplined Pune bowling tightened the noose around the Bangalore batsmen and didn't let them score runs freely. Regular wickets for Pune and poor batting display, yet again, from Bangalore saw them lose two crucial points. With this defeat Bangalore are virtually out of the tournament. (SCORECARD)

Imran Tahir, Lockie Ferguson and Dan Christian along with other bowlers, shared the spoils of the game. For Bangalore, Virat Kohli scored the highest (55) and for Pune, Tahir finished for 3 for 18 from his four overs. After this win, Pune stay at the fourth position with 10 points on the table.

That's it from us for this game. Pune have got their third win at home and Bangalore have practically thrown away their dreams of reaching the playoffs. You could now join us for the second game of the evening between Gujarat and Mumbai. See you there.


Man of the Match, Lockie Ferguson says he thought his team was 15-20 runs short. States his team started well and he wanted to put the pressure on, so getting the wicket of AB de Villiers was good. Mentions he worked on his bowling plans and wanted to keep things simple. Credits his teammates for putting in an excellent performance and winning this game. Gives clarity on his plan to get AB de Villiers' wicket by saying that he knew the South African will go after him and luckily it went into Manoj Tiwary's hands.


Pune skipper, Steven Smith says that it is nice to get a winning streak going. Reckons that he had no idea what total was safe on this wicket till the halfway mark. Feels that they were 10-15 runs short after looking at the firepower the Bangalore batting line-up possess. Credits Imran Tahir and Lockie Ferguson for their brilliant performance tonight. Appreciates the latter for maintaining the pace and bounce throughout the game and ends by saying that he is a really bright prospect for the future.


Bangalore skipper, Virat Kohli says they lost the game and it's hard to stand and talk after such a loss. Admits that they just have to take it and move forward. Mentions his players are afraid of getting out and aren't playing well as a result. Thinks that the team that qualified for the finals last season should do better this season too. Adds that despite the fact that their playoff qualification isn't in their hands, they will want to do their best in the remaining games.


The hosts, on the other hand, were sensational with the ball. Unadkat started the things really well and once Tahir and Ferguson took over the ball, Bangalore were totally put in the shell. Smith will be really happy with his team's performance as the hosts are climbing up the table.


Another disappointing display with the bat from Bangalore. Nothing went their way from the start of the innings. Travis Head and AB de Villiers failed to make an impact again. Virat Kohli stuck there in the middle but hardly got any support from the other end. The skipper managed to score a half century and that was the only positive of the game for the visitors.


Daniel Christian to Sreenath Aravind

FOUR! Pune won't mind this one bit as that won't be enough. Sreenath Aravind smacks it over the covers and gets a boundary. PUNE WIN BY 61 RUNS!


Daniel Christian to Yuzvendra Chahal

Comes down the track and slices it to sweeper cover for a single.


Daniel Christian to Yuzvendra Chahal

Length ball around off, Yuzvendra Chahal with all his might swings his bat across the line to clear the fence. Doesn't connect with anything but the air.


Daniel Christian to Yuzvendra Chahal

Length delivery outside off, Chahal makes room and slaps it through the covers. Rahul Tripathi out in the deep runs to his right and puts in a good slide to stop the boundary. The umpire checks upstairs to confirm and replays show it definitely isn't a boundary. Two runs taken.
