Presentation:

Pietersen: "I can tell you something for free. That man over there batted like an absolute superstar. He has proven a lot of people wrong. We have to build for next season, there's an unrealistic chance of making the playoff. Yuvraj was just unbelievable. I'm always smiling."

Kohli: "Feels amazing, really wanted that win. In the field we made a few lapses but overall a good performance. It's important not to panic and this time I told Chahal to back himself and I backed my bowlers too. It's been very pleasing to see Yuvi bat like that, all those who doubted him should put those doubts to rest. We have to take it one game at a time and the results will follow."

Yuvraj is the Man of the Match: "It was important we finished really well. I've started really well and just kept believing in myself and the seniors believed in me. I wanted to come to a place where I can be myself and play my game and thanks to Vijay Mallya for bringing me over here."

That's it for now. It's been a really long night, an extended night. Thanks for staying up. The action continues tomorrow. Till then, this is Kanishkaa signing off. Good night!

End of match: That's eight defeats for DD. Meanwhile, RCB live to fight another day. They need to keep this momentum going. They are now at No.6 with MI below them, followed by DD
