Thank you for joining us. It's been a pleasure covering this game. Until next time, it's goodbye from myself, Shashank Kishore, and Nikhil Kalro. Cheers!

Time for the presentation

Ab de Villiers is the Player of the Match. "It's an amazing feeling when they chant my name. I look to put pressure on the bowlers. I'm human after all. If I get one or two away, I have momentum going my way. With the catch, I made it look tougher than it was. It curved away late, luckily it stuck. I got into a bad position. It'd be great to make the knockouts. Lot's got to happen. We have to win the next game, then it comes down to run rates."

Virat Kohli, the winning captain: "Emotions are alright, seen many of these games before. Have to stay calm, after a point, you have to understand the bowlers are in control. To be fair to them, it wasn't easy. There was dew as well, hats off to them for keeping their composure. Now we head to Rajasthan with momentum on our side, the team's feeling great. Tonight, AB, Moeen and Colin were outstanding. With the ball, there were difficulties but they did well. Moeen's come in and done a great job for us, hats off to him for grabbing opportunities with both hands. He's given us the balance. We're happy with the XI now, it's settled. Team's don't want us to win, looking at the strength, they want us to not win. We sense fear and we pounce. AB's catch was spiderman stuff, you don't do that as normal human beings. His shots still leave me in awe, the fielding unbelievable. Grateful to the crowd, this is our last home game. They've been fabulous."

Vincent Sunder wonders: "Pandey 62 off 38 but had two no-shot-offered deliveries and a cute no contact-attempt. Cost game?"

Kane Williamson says: "I think to be honest, we missed the trick a little with the ball in hand. RCB have a fantastic batting line-up and put us under pressure. When you're chasing a total like that, you need to make right decisions, at key times in the chase, we didn't. But there's a lot to learn as we move forward. We've seen the surface being tough here, tonight it was a good wicket, so we didn't want to get carried away. Close, but not close enough."

His next-door neighbour Tim Southee: "I thought I took the catch, but you never know. It looks worse on TV, third-umpire's decision, but we won and that's what matters.The way AB, Mo and Colin set the game up was great, it got tight towards the end but we held our nerve."

11.40pm RCB are now fifth with 12 points, level with Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI. Their game on Saturday against Royals in Jaipur is down to a knockout shootout. Big, big result for them.

What entertainment for the crowd. Over 400 runs, three magnificent knocks for RCB: AB, Moeen and de Grandhomme. Then in the chase, Williamson single-handedly brought this chase into the realms of possibility but was denied strike towards the end of the innings. He faced just eight balls in the last five overs leading into this final-over dismissal. That, right there, was the game. Manish Pandey played a good hand, but just didn't have enough in the tank to get his side home.

Mohammed Siraj to Pandey, 1 run, swings this full toss towards wide long-on, single is all Pandey will get. Firecrackers go off in Bengaluru as RCB stay alive! Sunrisers have been pipped at the post despite some shoddy bowling from Royal Challengers.

Williamson faced only 8 balls in the last 5 overs before his dismissal

Mohammed Siraj to Pandey, 2 runs, slices this up and over the infield, lands in no man's land behind point, they'll come back for the second. Chinnaswamy roars, the red flags are out

Mohammed Siraj to Hooda, 1 run, Kohli fluffs a simple chance at long-off but Chinnaswamy applauds because they know barring a brain freeze, they can't lose this. Hooda looked to clear the ropes, toe-ended it

Mohammed Siraj to Pandey, 1 leg bye, full toss angling down, swings and misses. Ball deflects off the pad towards short fine. A leg bye is all they'll get. Siraj escapes with a juicy full toss

Mohammed Siraj to Pandey, no run, trying to be too cute, misses. Looks to ramp this over short third man but the length is too full and straight. Can't lay bat to it

The good thing from Sunrisers' point of view is that Pandey will be on strike, something their fans haven't liked hearing at different stages this season. Can he bail them out?

Mohammed Siraj to Williamson, OUT, scoops this straight to de Grandhomme at fine leg! This went a mile in the air as he walked out to expose all three stumps and scoop, the ball went a mile, was swirling high and handsome, but de Grandhomme kept his composure to pull off a difficult catch. Is that the game? What a game.

Kohli's options: de Grandhomme or Siraj. Umesh and Chahal have bowled out. Surely he won't risk Moeen Ali. Reckon he'll go with Hyderabad boy Siraj. Yess
