Chasing 16 runs for victory, DD lost David Warner first ball, however Irfan Pathan carried on hitting a boundary and a huge six over fine leg. Needing 5 runs off the final ball, Ben Rohrer lost his off-stump bowled by Ravi Rampaul to give RCB a thrilling victory.

Chasing 153, KL Rahul (12) got RCB rolling, hitting consecutive boundaries off Ashish Nehra. The Delhi bowler who was earlier denied a leg before appeal had Rahul caught by Mahela Jayawardene. Morkel then got the important wicket of Chris Gayle (13) caught at third man after Gayle had deposited the previous delivery into the stands. AB de Villiers got off the mark with a six over point off Nehra.

De Villiers (39) was run out by Morkel in the 16th over and Andrew McDonald (0) was caught and bowled by Nadeem two balls later. Irfan Pathan's run out to get rid of Arun Karthik (5) and the wicket of Syed Mohammad (1) brought DD back in the game. Kohli (65) was then caught by Jaywardene off Umesh Yadav as RCB started choking. Needing 12 runs off the last over, Ravi Rampaul hit a six to reduce it to 2 runs off the final ball. Rampaul and R Vinay Kumar scampered for a bye to tie the match and take it to the super over.

Presentation:

Virat Kohli: "Fourth last-ball finish for us, our time had to come in the Super Over i guess, but we should have won with an over to spare. Great comeback by DD and great hits by AB to get us back into the game. We needed 26 off 28 when AB got run out and I didnt get strike after that. I would have been really angry if we had lost today. Ravi bowled a great over to pull us back. It was a brilliant effort by the bowlers."

Mahela Jayawardene: "We are getting there. Four overs to go we were not in, couple of crucial wickets, we came back. In the super over, the first three-four balls were alright. That shows the character of the team, the guys are fighting, we need to handle those crucial situations better."
