Royal Challengers Bangalore finally managed a win in off the last match of their season. Playing Delhi Daredevils at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium, RCB won by 10 runs. Harshal Patel and Pawan Negi starred with the ball for RCB, taking three wickets apiece and Virat Kohli smashed a half century to be the highest scorer for them.

The match was the last of the league stages and was a dead rubber with both teams being well out of contention for the playoffs. While Delhi’s campaign got off to a favourable start and tapered off towards the end of the league stages, it has been a horrendous journey for Bangalore in IPL 2017. This is only the third win of the season for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

RCB batted first and Chris Gayle came out to bat with Vishnu Vinod. Gayle was the man who did most of the hitting before Vinod was dismissed by Pat Cummins. Skipper Virat Kohli then came out to bat and knitted together a 66-run partnership for the second wicket. Although Gayle departed later on, Kohli kept the foot on the pedal and was on 58 when he was dismissed. Sachin Baby, Kedar Jadhav and Pawan Negi then pushed RCB to a total of 144.

Here are a few reactions to the match: 

This was the last match of the league stages. Mumbai Indians now host Rising Pune Supergiant in the playoff on Tuesday.
