It has been a pleasure bringing the group stages to you. We will come back on Tuesday, with the final stage of the tournament, with four teams in the fray and one title to play for. Till then, it is a goodbye from Kaushal and Aadya.

Virat Kohli, winning captain and the man of the match said, "My stats have reached me through images, but I believe every game is a new game and you need to do well for your team. We were in #7, we finish at #2. You have to start afresh everyday, you need to have discipline, you need to do boring things, with your training and diet and everything. It's very important not to get rude or arrogant about your form, there will be few incidents where people have a go at you, but it's important to remain calm. I have to worry about coming down for breakfast nowadays, the sort of frustration people used to feel with me, I don't feel it much anymore. Our bowling unit stepped up today, it was a 160 par wicket and they bowled superbly today, hats off to them."

VIRAT KOHLI is the MAN OF THE MATCH!

Zaheer said, "It's been a wonderful journey. There are good days, there are bad. It's been an amazing campaign for us. The youngsters have learnt a lot, with this kind of a squad, we have given a tough time to all the other teams. 160 would have been defendable on this big ground, we got early wickets, but when you're up against Kohli, it's a difficult task. Not at all disappointed about the youngsters' performance, we have given them the freedom to express themselves, we were 1 partnership short. I haven't thought about my future, it's been a fantastic campaign for me, passing on my learnings to the youngsters."

It just had to be done this way. Kohli had to be the man to lead RCB over the line. Chasing 139, they got off to a jittery start losing the wickets of Gayle and ABD early. KL Rahul walked in and played a blinder, accelerating the innings at a crucial time. Watson and Binny applied the finishing touches to the innings. RCB needed 4 wins in 4 games to qualify for the playoffs. They won 4 games in 4! Second place in the table for the RCB. Qualifier 1 in Bangalore. What a season.
