RCB vs CSK Live Scorecard and Highlights: Post-Match interviews

RCB Captain and Player of the Match, Faf du Plessis: What a night. Unbelievable and such a great atmosphere, such a pleasure to finish off the season with a win. Batting first, I think it was the hardest pitch I have ever played on. Myself and Virat were talking about 140-150 after we came back from the rain break. The communication from the umpires was there was a lot of rain on the pitch, they wanted to push the game and that makes sense. and when we came back my god, I was telling Mitch Santner it was like a day 5 pitch at ranchi and to get 200 on that was unbelievable. The last 6 games the batters have batted with good intent and good strike-rate. We were slow earlier on and we wanted more intent and that was awesome. We were defending 175, it got a bit close, at one stage, with MS there, I thought, oh dear, he has done it so many times. The way we bowleed with the wet ball, we tried to change it. I wanted to give the Man of the Match to Yash Dayal. The way he bowled was unbelievable. For a man who's fairly new, he deserves it. [on what he told Dayal before the last over] Pace off is the best option and trust your skills and enjoy, this is what you trained for. The yorker did not work the 1st ball and he went back to pace off and it worked unbelievably well. [on the crowd tonight[ It's crazy, even when we weren't winning the fans were here. We felt in the changeroom we felt it was something we had to get right. Coming here tonight, it was set up nicely, CSK v RCB, unbelievable atmosphere and we as a team will do a lap of honour to thank the crowd for the support. It's really important that we enjoy this, great 6 games in a row and the first goal is to get into the knockouts, enjoy this but get back to work tomorrow.

CSK Captain, Ruturaj Gaikwad: I think it was a good wicket to be honest, it was spinning and gripping a little bit, but I think 200 on this ground was gettable. We kept losing wickets at regular intervals, it was a matter of one or two hits, sometimes that can happen in a T20 game. Pretty happy with what the target was, to sum up the season, I am pretty happy to have seven wins out of 14 games. Just couldn't get over the line in the last two balls. With the kind of injuries we had, missing out on two frontline bowlers, not having Conway at the top of the order as well, I think missing out on three key players made a huge difference. Credit to the CSK staff and everyone who put up a great show for us throughout the season. There were many challenges for us right throughout the first game. Injury to Fizz (Mustafiur), then injruy to Pathirana as well, he came back and then again Pathirana missed out. When you have injuries around, you have to get that balance in the team and pick it (the team) for every game. I think this season sums up well where we had to tinker around with our playing XI, considering the injuries and all the illness (of the players) as well. Happy with the seven wins, couldn't get over the line though. Happy with it. We got 10 from the last 2 balls in our last knockout game last year so this was a similar situation, things didn't go our way (this season) though. For me, personal milestones don't really matter a lot, after all the ultimate goal is to win. If you are not getting there it's a disappointment. Doesn't matter if you score 100 runs or 500-600 runs in a season. I am disappointed.

RCB Pacer, Lockie Ferguson: Unbelievable, not sure how to put in words, complete team effort, wasn't easy to bowl at the end, it was very wet. Yash, to get rid of MS and get the job done, it was amazing. It's the nature of bowling here, mix it up and keep the batters guessing. There's a bit of spin as well and we needed to keep the batters guessing. In the end, we got the job done. If I could rewind time (on asking why he didn't bowl a yorker in the 19th over), but the wicket was doing a bit when bowled on a length. We know how good Jaddu is with the yorker ball, but perhaps we could have tried to. Thankful to Yash for getting the job done.

RCB vs CSK Live Scorecard and Highlights: Royal Challengers Bengaluru won by 27 runs and qualify for the playoffs

Excellent bowling by Yash Dayal, he held his nerve and took RCB over the line in a pressure cooker situation. CSK was knocked out, RCB qualified, and the fans would be going crazy after this win. The atmosphere at the Stadium will be electric after this much-awaited win for the men in red and blue.

RCB qualifies to the playoffs and CSK get knocked out of the tournament. Historically, the men in yellow have often bested the men in red, but tonight is RCB's moment of redemption. They set the tone with a strong batting performance, posting 218, and Maxwell provided a dream start by dismissing Gaikwad with his very first ball.

The fans must be delighted with this win and the atmosphere at the stadium will be electric, The CSK fans on the other hand will be very disappointed after this narrow loss.

RCB vs CSK Live Score and Updates: Captains comments

RCB Captain, Faf du Plessis - We would have fielded as well, but we put up a good score when we batted first last. Losing the toss isn't ideal, but we'll take a lot of confidence from the last 5 games. The set-up is great, last match before the knock-out stage, the scenario is nicely set-up and we're happy to play our last league game in front of our fans. Not thinking a lot, we'll take it as it comes and do our best. 

CSK Captain, Ruturaj Gaikwad - We'll bowl first. The wicket looks good, conditions are overcast and we will look to make the most of the movement in the first 2-3 overs. It looks a bit damp, but we'll go with great intent. Every game in the IPL is must win, nothing changes for us, we'll take it ball-by-ball, try and win the small processes. We've won some crucial games to go ahead of the pack in the middle. Just one change - Moeen isn't available, Santner will replace him.

RCB vs CSK Live Score and Updates: Pitch Report by Deep Dasgupta

There hasn't been much rain since yesterday, just the occasional drizzle so the hopes are high and we are all set for a mouth-watering encounter. The square boundaries are 60 meters, while it's 70 meters straight down the ground. According to Deep Dasgupta, the surface doesn't have much grass, with a few cracks giving it a mosaic look, but the pitch is rock hard. Unlike the previous game, it lacks extra moisture. Expect plenty of runs to be scored.

are expected to bring back Glenn Maxwell to replace Will Jacks, who has left for England duty. Rajat Patidar is likely to replace Yash Dayal or Swapnil Singh as the impact substitute once again.

They have been heavily reliant on the top 3 but their middle will need to stand up in the crunch match. RCB has been hit badly with the return of their inform English players, none the less their bench looks to have some good talent. The home crowd will be behind them and will play like the 12th man, aiding in boosting their winnings chances.
