7.30pm The pitch offered grip and turn, and Sunil Narine returned his best figures of the season - 3 for 26 - to lead his side to the playoffs. Kuldeep Yadav turned the ball either way and accounted for Dhawan and KW. The result also means that Mumbai are out of the tournament. Royal Challengers v Delhi Daredevils is now a direct shootout for the final playoff spot.

Gautam Gambhir: It was a must-win game for us. The credit goes to the entire group. Yusuf is taking his time and his role has changed from being a finisher last season. We are now giving him more overs. I thought that 160 would be a good total. We can take a lot of positives from this game. It was a playoff for us. Suddenly when you lose a player of Russell's caliber, it forces us to make changes.

Yusuf is the Man of the Match

Alpesh: "RCB top-two finish certain with a win"

Supradeep: "This last match just before the playoffs has revealed the very big void in the middle order of SRH batting line-up."

Hanish: "50 dot balls..in HYD innings..!"

RCBfan: "if RCB wins!! they moves to 2nd spot!! wow!!! they are doing what MI did last year!! and they chase!! another kohli knock cominggggggg............."

That is all we have for you from this game. Thanks for tuning in. Goodbye.
