And that's a wrap on things. Hope you enjoyed our coverage of this high-voltage entertainer from Bengaluru. The action tomorrow, shifts to Jaipur where the Rajasthan Royals host the Delhi Capitals. Do join us for live action. Until then, it's goodbye.
Parthiv Patel (Man of the Match):  We started really well. I have been batting well and it was just about the good form converting into a performance. I knew that there was only one way if he (MS Dhoni) was beaten and I was warming up for it right since the third ball of the final over. The points don't reflect how well we played this season. There have been pretty close ones but we will look to build on this performance.
Virat Kohli: A whole lot of emotions. I thought we were outstanding with the ball until the 19th over. It was an outstanding effort to defend that score with the dew playing against us. Very happy in the end. MS did what he does best and gave us a massive scare. In the hindsight, yes, Moeen Ali could have batted up the order. He just has one game left now and you might see him come up the order and enjoy himself. Saini has shown a lot of heart. Parthiv too, was outstanding for us.
MS Dhoni: It was a good bowling performance. We did really well to restrict them to a below par score. However, we need to improve our batting approach and get our calculations right as to when do the risks need to be taken. So far, we have done well and that's the advantage of having experienced people in the side. 
At the end of the day, RCB manage to get their nose ahead of CSK and win the game by just one run to stay alive in the competition. CSK, on the other hand, face their second successive loss. 
This was touted to be a high-voltage entertainer and boy didn't it live up to the expectations! But you have to stand and applaud yet another MSD masterclass. The CSK skipper was at his blazing best but unfortunately, couldn't get his team over the line tonight.
Wow!! What have we seen here! IPL at its very best! Dhoni misses the slower one from Umesh Yadav and Parthiv Patel nails the direct hit to win it for RCB by a whisker. 
Over 20 CSK: 160/8(RR 8.00) Bowler: U Yadav Summary: 4 6 6 2 6 W |
19.6 OUT! Run Out. Umesh Yadav to MS Dhoni. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper, fielded by Patel.
19.5 SIX! Umesh Yadav to MS Dhoni. Full toss, to leg on the front foot Slog, well timed over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
Another maximum!! MSD is wooing the crowd with his magic yet again. Can he pull it off?
19.4 Umesh Yadav to MS Dhoni. Yorker, to leg on the front foot driving, inside edge to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Negi.
19.3 SIX! Umesh Yadav to MS Dhoni. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed over deep extra cover for 6 runs. Another six! this time on the off-side as Dhoni drives the ball. AB nearly gets there, but he is just not tall enough.
Wow! This is brilliant striking from MSD. Yadav bowls a poor delivery and the CSK skipper has smashed it out of the ground!
19.2 SIX! Umesh Yadav to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, well timed over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
19.1 FOUR! Umesh Yadav to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs.
Edged and gone! Saini pitches one in short and Bravo throws the kitchen sink at it, only to find an edge into Parthiv Patel's gloves. CSK now need 26 runs off the last over. This is by no means an easy task, even for the likes of MS Dhoni.
