Yuzvendra Chahal has been adjudged as the man of the match for his match winning spell of 3-24 in four overs. 
Royal Challengers Bangalore win the match by 8 wickets with 5 balls to spare.

RCB started off the chase well, getting 20 runs in the first two overs of the match. They lost Aaron Finch early but in came the master of all trades, Virat Kohli and steadied the ship in his trademark style. The win today will be more of a talk of him getting back in form rather than RCB stealing the match. Kohli along with young class act Devdutt Padikkal steered the chase for RCB. AB de Villiers came in to bat briefly and hit a four to get them across the line, helping them register the third win of the tournament.

Rajasthan Royals will be disappointed with their bowling and fielding efforts. They gave away many overthrows and also dropped a few costly catches that cost them the match. Only Jofra Archer and Shreyas Gopal, early in the innings, got a breakthrough to stop them from scoring the runs.

With this win, RCB have gone on top of the table. They will face the upbeat Delhi Capitals next in Dubai. This win will do them a world of good to boost their confidence.

 Rajasthan Royals will be a little bit worried with regards to their  batting but should be able to fix these issues once Stokes comes and bolsters their middle order. They will be facing the Mumbai Indians up next in Abu Dhabi
19.1 Tom Curran to AB de Villiers, FOUR! THAT IS THAT! Low full toss on middle stump and AB clips that one past mid on to collect four and catapult RCB to the top of the IPL table!
Victory in sight for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. They need only a single now for victory and they will look to run it quickly and seal the deal for their team. Kohli has batted well throughout the innings and they will be looking to end it well tonight
Over: 19 | Summary: 1 3 0 1 1 1 Bowler: Jaydev Unadkat Score: 154/2
18.6 Jaydev Unadkat to AB de Villiers, full delivery on middle and leg. AB comes forward and drives down the ground to long on for another run. Scores level now!
18.5 Jaydev Unadkat to Virat Kohli, slower bumper on middle stump and Kohli has to wait an eternity for it to arrive. He then slaps it to deep mid wicket for a single
18.4 Jaydev Unadkat to AB de Villiers, back of a length delivery outside off stump and AB dabs that one to extra cover. They initially don't take the single but the overthrow allows one
18.3 Jaydev Unadkat to AB de Villiers, slower delivery on a length on middle and leg. AB lets the ball come to him before patting it back to the bowler
18.2 Jaydev Unadkat to Virat Kohli, JUST SHORT! Back of a length delivery outside off stump. Kohli dances down the track and chips it towards long off, where the fielder sees the ball just fall short. Kohli then somehow manages to get across for three during that time
18.1 Jaydev Unadkat to AB de Villiers, back of a length delivery on leg stump. AB gives himself a bit of room and drops it into the on side for a single
RCB are closer to victory now. Virat "Chasemaster" Kohli hits 3 boundaries in the over to get his side across the finish line. He along with AB de Villiers have ran absolutely well between the wickets and have kept the runs flowing when the boundaries didn't come. 
Over: 18 | Summary: 4 1 1 2 4 4 Bowler: Tom Curran Score: 147/2
17.6 Tom Curran to Virat Kohli, FOUR! EXCELLENT! Another off pace delivery on a back of a length on middle stump. Kohli waits on it and then shovels it past deep backward square leg for another boundary! Kohli and RCB finishing the chase at a canter now! Gets the third four of the over and gets the margin down to 8 runs needed in 12 balls.
17.5 Tom Curran to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Short, wide and punished! Too much width on that one and it enables Kohli to throw his hands at it and slash it over third man for four. Gets the edge and the ball will win the race against a running Uthappa. They need 12 runs in 13 balls
17.4 Tom Curran to Virat Kohli, slower delivery on a length on off stump. Kohli, like a surgeon, places the ball between deep mid wicket and deep square leg before scampering a couple
17.3 Tom Curran to AB de Villiers, back of the hand slower delivery on a full length outside off. AB looks to carve it over extra cover but is early on the stroke, meaning that he slices it to deep point for one
17.2 Tom Curran to Virat Kohli, full delivery on middle and leg. Kohli comes forward and clips it away to the fielder at deep mid wicket before getting across to the other end
17.1 Tom Curran to Virat Kohli, FOUR! SHOT! Full delivery on off stump and Kohli takes a couple of paces down the track before caressing it past mid off for four! Glorious! Times that as well as he could and it races past to the boundary for a four. Such a glorious shot that the heart says it to play it on a loop. Good shot.
