Chasing a meager 118, RCB started positively as Tillakaratne Dilshan hit S Sreesanth for consecutive boundaries in the second over. He continued his assault with another couple of boundaries off James Faulkner. RCB put on 48 runs in the power play. Shane Watson provided RR with the first breakthrough as he had Dilshan (25) caught behind. Faulkner then castled the in-form Virat Kohli (1). Watson struck again to have the dangerous AB de Villiers caught at mid-off leaving RCB at 64 for 3 in 9 overs.

Chris Gayle played an uncharacteristic cautious knock anchoring the RCB innings. Saurabh Tiwary too was cautious to begin with, but broke the shackles when he bludgeoned a six off Ajit Chandila in the 15th over. Needing 16 runs off the final four overs, Tiwary went after Siddharth Trivedi hitting him for two boundaries before Gayle finished it with a six. Gayle and Tiwary put on 59 runs to see RCB home with 13 balls to spare.

Earlier in the evening RCB won the toss and opted to field. Watson got RR running with a boundary off the first delivery. Ravi Rampaul drew first blood for the hosts sending back Watson (6) caught by Murali Kartik at mid-off. Ajinkya Rahane (14) hit a boundary and a six off Rampaul's third over, before Jaydev Unadkat had him caught at point off a slower delivery. 

Bangalore boys, Rahul Dravid and Stuart Binny got on with the task of rebuilding the innings and put on 40 runs for the third wicket; Binny smashed Unadkat for a boundary and a six in the 8th over. R Vinay Kumar had Binny (33) top edge a pull to give RCB their third wicket.

Murali Kartik dismissed Dravid (35) caught at long-off to trigger a collapse. Vinay Kumar in the next over had Brad Hodge (13) caught behind before RP Singh struck twice, dismissing Faulkner (3) and Dishant Yagnik (5). The wickets continued to tumble as Sreesanth (0), Shaun Tait (1), and Trivedi (3) fell as RR were bundled out for 117 with two balls to spare.

Presentation

Virat Kohli: "Happy with the outcome as this was not a last-ball finish. The wicket was decent enough to bat and the bowlers made RR batsmen play shots that they shouldn't have played. I made one point to the bowlers in the meeting - you try to make your own plans, you decide what field you want to. It was a smart chase and Gayle and Tiwary played a perfect role. "

Rahul Dravid: "Lovely to come here in Bangalore, unfortunately the game didn't pan out our way, but RCB outplayed us here. It was a 150-kind of wicket and unfortunately, our middle order is not really experienced and our tail didn't add much. Shaun Tait is an impact bowler and we have to use him time and time again, especially as there was Gayle around today. But unfortunately, Gayle changed his game completely today. "
