Match 11, Bengaluru

A brilliant win for RR and they have broken the rule of teams chasing winning for definite now. Sanju Samson played a superb knock to get the visitors to a massive total. With AB and Kohli at the crease, there was hope for RCB, but they've slid to quite a heavy defeat. Had Mandeep and Sundar not added some lusty blows, it could have been even heavier. Thank you so much for your company in this match, and make sure you follow the second game of the day, KXIP v CSK, as Chris Gayle is BACK!

MoM: Sanju Samson

Rahane: "It feeels good, we know how dangerous they are against RCB. We were looking to score 160-170, but the way Sanju and Jos batted was incredible. We've been trying without left-right combination upfront. All of them have experience, it was about one big partnership. K Gowtham and Shreyas Gopal bowled really well. When you score 200 plus, the opponents will come hard at you. They held their own really well. Sanju and I have played together, he's the future for India and we all back him."

Kohli: "We knew exactly where it went wrong. Having 70 in 10 overs, we were going good with the ball. But giving 140-odd in the last 10 is never a good sign. The wicket was slower than what we played like. We would have loved to have 20 runs lesser to chase. But then, I have never seen a game where four batsmen have got out to half-trackers. There is a lot of belief in the side, even when we needed 85 off the last 5 overs, we had belief. That mindset is important. We had 100 in 10 overs, we were confident and if we hadn't lost two wickets in six balls, things could have been different. No ifs or buts though. First game we were on track, we had our chances today as well. Too early to make drastic changes though."

Wicket! That should be that! Sundar tries to bring out the AB style scoop but smashes it on to his own stumps. Ends a fine, fine innings
