Presentation Ceremony :

Vettori: "Good all-round performance from the team. Delhi bowled well and AB De Villiers and Vinay kumar's partnership was crucial. 157 was tough to defend but our bowling set us up in the end"

Sehwag: "We lacked partnerships in the middle overs. There are still 14 games to go and 2 of our best players who would return would boost the team up"

Man of the Match is AB De Villiers

AB De Villiers: "New Zealand tour helped me as i am riding the wave. Gelling well with the youngsters and have told them to keep it simple with regards to running between the wickets"

He also makes a special mention of the Bangalore crowd and says it's the best cricketing crowd in the world.

Hop over to the other match which is between Deccan chargers and the SuperKings! I'll be donning the commentary gloves for that match as well. Stay tuned

Royal Challengers Bangalore win by 20 runs which is a good victory margin in T20's. How crucial that innings by AB De Villiers turned out to be in the end. He maintained a zen like focus amidst the collapse at the other end.

But, all said, nothing has to be taken away from the the deadly spin duo of Murali and Vettori who strangled the Delhi batsmen.
