So Bangalore storm home with 29 balls to spare. This is a clinical thrashing. So Victoria and Cape Cobras are through to the semi-finals from this group. What this means is there will be no IPL team in the semis. Not what the organisers hoped for but life must move on.

The Royal Challengers do a lap around the ground. The crowd took the disappointment well at the start of this game but they couldn't have asked for a better consolation gift, courtesy Kumble, Taylor, Dravid and Kohli.

Here's the presentation.

Ross Taylor is the Man of the Match: "When you get crowd support like this it's hard not to entertain. I don't get this reception back home so have to thanks them."

Gambhir: "We thought we would score 170 but we were 30-40 runs short. Ross batted brilliantly. Their spinners bowled really well. It's important for us to play well in front of our fans in Delhi."

Kumble: "I thought we played really well in this tournament, just one bad game. It's a great birthday present. Ross was exceptional."

That's it from us. Hope all of you had a great Diwali. Two more games tomorrow. Join us for that. It's goodbye from all of us here.
