Delhi Daredevils v Royal Challengers Bangalore, IPL 2017: Live streaming information, TV listings, team news and preview

Kohl Vt

It has been a season of colossal failure for the Virat Kohli-led side which has delivered way below its expectations. Kohli, who smashed a record-shattering 973 runs a year ago including four centuries, managed, barely 250 runs this season. For the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle remain the key players and last match's performer Travis Head will be a threat for Delhi bowlers as well.

Despite the win, RCB finished at the bottom of the table with just seven points from 14 games, while Daredevils were placed sixth with 12 points from as many matches.

Opening batsman Vishnu Vinod (3) didn't trouble the scorers as he was bowled by Pat Cummins in the fifth ball of the fifth over.

Unlike the previous seasons, RCB's batting has been the biggest disappointment with the likes of Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Kohli himself not stepping up.

Kohli, for who the Feroz Shah Kotla is his home ground in domestic cricket, played his first authoritative stroke in the eighth over when he whipped one on his pads to the midwicket boundary.

The visitors lost Kedar Jadhav and Sachin Baby in the following two overs, before Pawan Negi (13 not out) collected three consecutive boundaries in the final over - two of them through thick outside edges. It was the change in bowlers that got the breakthroughs with the wickets of Vishnu and Gayle.

Karun Nair (26 off 22), Shreyas Iyer (32 off 30) and Pant helped recover the innings but all were guilty of getting out when well set.

It was characteristic Kohli as the Indian captain timed one superbly to send Anderson over long-off for a maximum, bringing the side's fifty in the first ball of the ninth over on a slow pitch.

Kohli picked out leg-spinner Amit Mishra for attack and his rasping flicks towards the midwicket against provided the runs Bangalore required in the middle overs. The ball raced away into the boundary.

At the end of the 10th over, Daredevils were 76 or two, needing 86 runs off 60 balls. Pant, however, was running out of partners as wickets tumbled at regular intervals post the 15th over.

However, Gayle fell two runs short of a half century, as Shahbaz Nadeem had him caught at midwicket for a rather soft dismissal. The DD captain though had the last laugh as he threw one wide, and Kohli couldn't control his lofted drive and holed out to long off. Kohli was dismissed for 58 (45 balls, 3 fours, 3 sixes) and RCB had slipped to 118-4.
