Quotes from presentation
"It was tough target," says MS Dhoni. "Their bowlers bowled really well after Virat and Gayle gave them a lot of runs to defend. Good sporting wicket. You have to at your best in the playoffs. We want to win the first game. Our middle order has got a decent run, our bowlers have had decent outing. No reason we can't do well."

"As I said in the beginning, just pleased to go and get a game" says Virat Kohli, who is also the Man of the Match. "This puts serious pressure on Sunrisers. Obviously the crowd enjoyed it too. Thanks for your support. We told ourselves, aim for 80 and we will get 20 more. Chris and I gave us four-five balls each before hitting. The way Zak bowled it is great to have him back. I'll personally call Gautam tomorrow morning and ask him to go out and win the game for us."

RCB go on a lap of honour to thanks the Chinnaswamy crowd

RCB stay alive. It's down to Sunrisers now, who play KKR tomorrow. It's open to debate if T20 is cricket, but this certainly wasn't (don't me go deeper into it). However, the constraints for both teams were similar, so well done RCB
