309 runs for Suresh Riana, he has the Orange Cap. Tye is the man of the match.
...
The match summed up RCB's season so far and Kohli hit the nail on the head when he spoke of lack of intent. The side looks demotivated, they've chopped and changed their batting order and just haven't come up with a winning formula. 

They stars aren't firing and unlike last year, when they made a late rally, the signs don't quite indicate an encore. 
...
Finch propelled the GL innings with a thumping 72 (34). Raina held the innings together with a solid 34 (30). Badree was the pick of the bowlers for RCB with 2/29.

Virat Kohli: "When there's lack of intent, it's never easy to lose games. Tonight was not clinical. We need to get more consistent with our performances. You need some luck going your way, when it doesn't, it goes against you. The guys were too hesitant to try too many things, which you should do."

"It (pitch) was coming on well. Under lights, it pretty much the same. Credit to him (Finch) he played a fantastic knock."

This win will good a world of good for GL's confidence and their run rate as well.

It's a comprehensive result for GL and they've decimated RCB. 
...
And Riana strikes the winning runs as GL win by 7 wickets with 39 deliveries to spare.
