The game was taken away from Rajasthan by that Dilshan-de Villiers stand. It was the latter who turned it around, and once Dravid fell in the chase - the required-rate had already crept up to dangerous proportions by the time he got out - the match was all but sealed. A good comeback by Bangalore, they were beaten by Rajasthan in their previous encounter. Appanna did a very good job. This win will help Bangalore move up a couple of places on the table, and it spices things up even more. We'll get you the presentation details in a bit. George Binoy is updating the report of this match.

Dravid: "The last five overs made the difference. Dilshan and AB played really well in that period. The death bowling has been an area of concern. I've been hitting some good shots but its important to get the right result as well. Appanna bowled well, he had the backing of a lot of runs behind him. He spun the ball, it's good for his confidence."

Vettori: "The way Zak, Vinay and Harshal Patel bowled was a confidence booster for the side. Pretty much every team still has a chance, so we need to keep winning."

AB de Villiers is the Man of the Match: "I had a good game, I enjoyed my batting. I'd like to hand over this award to the man who took four wickets, KP Appanna. I haven't done this before. It's a team game."

Appanna: "On this track, getting to 190 was a great effort, and I got some turn from the track."

Nice gesture from AB there, though it was his performance that set up Bangalore. They've won easily here. Thanks for tuning in. Do join us tomorrow for the double-header. See you then.
