That's it from this game. RCB finally manage to get another win, their second of the season. But it wasn't without getting a mini heart attack. They almost bottled this up as well. But they'll be happy to get a couple more points on the board. KKR have now lost four on the bounce now. It's a double-header Saturday tomorrow. RR face MI while DC play KXIP. Do join us for those games as well. Until then, it's a good night and goodbye from us! 
Virat Kohli [Man of the Match]: Felt really good, especially after what happened here two years back. There's no point panicking, you have to leave it to the bowlers. Stoinis bowled well in the 19th over and made a few good decisions. To be honest, our communication at the second time-out was that we need 170-175. We did not think we'll get 200.  Moeen changed the game completely. The way he played it allowed me to bat through. It was important to bat long in the absence of AB. On a ground like this, death overs are always going to be difficult. Steyn getting those wickets in the powerplay was very crucial. 
Dinesh Karthik: I thought it was 20-25 runs too many. 180-185 is a par score here. But that's what happens when a player Virat gets going at the end. The wicket was a little sticky so it was not easy for stroke making early on. But I thought it was 20 runs too many. It is a hard wicket for the spinners to bowl. The way RCB played they deserve to win as they did the little things right. If we play a couple of good games, things will start rolling. I believe in my boys.
KKR had absolutely no business getting this close but once again, it was that man, Andre Russell that bought them this close. Nitish Rana tried gave his absolute best as well. He kept going from one end and kept giving Russell some excellent company. It didn't start off well for KKR as they lost three wickets in the first five overs as the RCB pacers started off really well. Uthappa struggled but once Russell came in, he turned the game on its head. KKR needed 120 in the last seven overs. They were always behind but the presence of Russell kept them in the hunt. RCB's death bowling once again almost blew it up but Moeen Ali held his nerve and RCB won by 10 runs in the end. 
What a game we've had! Absolutely phenomenal, barely have any nails left. The heart rate isn't normal either. Absolute thriller!
All over, Rana strikes a six off the last ball but Kohli and RCB will breathe a sigh of relief!

Russell is turning this around once again. Stoinis gave away just one off the first three balls and Russell has turned this into a 19-run over. Manic hitting! This is simply mind-boggling stuff from Russell. How is he doing this? He's also suffering from some cramps in his wrists.
