That is the game, it was a valiant effort by Kings XI Punjab but it is Royal Challengers Bangalore who triumph by 17 runs. The man they need to thank is AB de Villiers who was outstanding with the bat and in the field tonight scoring a match winning 82* and taking three top class catches. Kings XI got off to a great start with KL Rahul hitting a quick 42 off 27 balls, and found themselves in a commanding position of 101-1 off nine overs. However tight middle over bowling from Moeen Ali and Stoinis slowed down the chase with Yadav cleaning up at the end taking a further two wickets in the final over. This win keeps RCB's playoff chances alive moving them off the foot of the table for the first time this season.
