As RCB played host to SRH at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, it was a do-or-die encounter for them. SRH were 152/2. Kane Williamson 76 (35) and Manish Pandey 21 (16) were at the crease.

The duo went hammer and tongs as an otherwise tidy Sunrisers bowling attack looked clueless in front of the onslaught.

Bangalore must win against Rajasthan Royals on Saturday to have any hope of making it to the play-offs on run-rate. Moeen Ali replaced Kohli.

That, of course, was the match that really brought Royal Challengers' bowling weaknesses to the forefront, with Super Kings chasing down 80 off the last six overs. The win came as a much needed relief for Virat Kohli and his teammates. After losing openers early, AB De Villiers 69 (39) and Moeen Ali 65 (34) took over.

RCB raised 100 for loss of two wickets in the 12th over and looked comfortable for a tall score.

Ali led RCB's charge against the tide. Luckily for Williamson, de Grandhomme was out the next ball for a hard hit 40 off just 17 balls, including one four and four sixes.

He smashed six sixes during his knock with two boundaries.

Thampi's record-breaking "feat " It was a bad day in the office for Basil Thampi. The over produced 19 overs. He finished with an economy of 17.50.

While De Villiers struck as many as 12 fours and one six, Ali's innings was laced with two boundaries and six hits over the fence.

De Villiers' gravity-defying catchSpider-man?

But this time, it was about another magic trick De Villiers performed in the field that left the cricket world amazed by his brilliance.

De Villiers has pulled off many a screamer in his 14-year global career.

Hales, batting on 37, was eyeing the fence off almost every ball. Bangalore have worked through all of their overseas all-rounders and will be grateful that Moeen has been overlooked by England's test selectors. I felt I was in a bit of a puddle when I got out there.

During the 11th season of IPL, the audience has witnessed many stunning, unbelievable catches.

Despite the early blow thanks to De Villiers's brilliance, Sunrisers weren't willing to throw in the towel. Followed by Kane Williamson and Manish Pandey had a good partnership by scoring 81 runs by Williamson and 62 runs not out by Manish Pandey.

He began with a flurry of boundaries immediately after coming in. The run rate was 7.33 per over.

Rahane has also not been in the best of form, managing to accumulate just 291 runs from 12 innings. Kaul got the better of Mandeep on the very first ball of the 18th over, Dhawan took the catch this time.

The false stroke came as Williamson tried to up the ante having become frustrated after facing just eight balls in the last five overs. The other sides who can get to 14 are MI (if they beat DD), KKR (if they lose to SRH) and KXIP (if they beat CSK).
