00:10 (IST)

Right then time for us to bid goodbye. Some fabulous cricket from both sides as runs galore at the Chinnaswmany stadium. AB de Villiers was just himself, with the bat as well as in the field. Moeen Ali's contribution was invaluable today for the home side, as was Colin de Grandhomme's blitz in the end. Rashid Khan was fantastic with the ball, as he bagged three key wickets. From SRH's team, they were in the tall chase till the very end almost into the final over, courtesy another admirable performance by Kane Williamson, with a good hand provided by Manish Pandey. RCB have the momentum on their side with three back-to-back wins and their fans will hope they do the same when they take on Rajasthan Royals in their final game, but there is still time for that. 

It is the Chennai Super Kings locking horns with Delhi Daredevils tomorrow. CSK will need those two points to ensure top two finish and a big win for them could help them surge past SRH at the helm. Can Daredevils be the party poopers? We will find out tomorrow. We look forward to your company as will bring you all the LIVE scores, graphs, over-by-over updates along with opinions and lot more. Until we meet, it's goodnight from us.

00:04 (IST)

So this is how the standings are after RCB's win. They move to 5th place in the table and making the race for playoffs tighter. 

00:01 (IST)

De Villiers: It is an amazing feeling. Crazy game of cricket. We pulled it through.  Rashid Khan is a really good bowler. I look to put pressure on the bowlers. I am human after all.If I get one or two away, I have momentum going my way. With the catch, I made it look tougher than it was. It  was curving away late and luckily it stuck. The minute I took the jump and felt my body was outside. It will be great to make the knockouts. Most important thing is to win the last game.

00:01 (IST)

AB de Villiers is the Man of the Match

23:58 (IST)

Virat Kohli, RCB captain: We want the teams to to fear playing us and we want to take advantage of the fear and pounce on it. We have been brilliant as always. This (AB de Villiers catch) is the kind of stuff that the super humans do. We just want to get on with the confidence of winning the last three matches and take it forward to whatever matches we have left in the tournament. 

23:43 (IST)

Yet another classy innings in a losing cause in this IPL. But Williamson can be really proud of this, perhaps his best T20 knock, showing that he has a gear that we haven't seen yet. Pandey's runs are as heartening, just as his lack of finishing skills was worrying. Credit to RCB, the team that everyone had written off just a week or so ago, have earned themselves a chance.

Kane Williamson, SRH captain: To be honest with ourselves we missed a trick a little with the ball in hand.RCB have a fantastic batting line-up and put us under pressure. In chase we need to make key decisions, and we didn't. It had to go perfectly for us to win. Lot to take from this game. Lot to learn as we move forward. Today was a very good wicket. We have played on some tough surfaces, nice to have good wicket, but it was important for us not get carried away. Tried to get a good start. As we know it in this ground the ball flies around. You just try to play the role the best you can and then the situation dicates how you go about it. Close, but not close enough. Credit to RCB, they deserve to win.

23:39 (IST)

Royal Challengers keep their hopes alive with a 14-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Ball 6: Only a single off the final ball and that will do it for them. The red flags are out and Siraj jumps in the air to soak in the celebrations. RCB are in the race. They climb to the fifth position on the table and still have a very healthy and positive run rate. Things getting interesting on the table. In the end RCB's gigantic total was a little to much for the Sunrisers.

23:39 (IST)

Ball 5:  Slices it up and over the infield on the offside over the point, lands in no man's land they run two. 16 off 1

23:38 (IST)

Ball 4: 1 run. Deepak Hooda chances his arm and hits the ball high for his first ball and is dropped by Kohli at long off. VK was running in from the deep, got there, settled underneath it and dropped a sitter. How often do you see him putting down chances!? Hooda takesa single. Target now beyond mathematical possibilities. 18 off 2

IPL 2018, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at Bengaluru, latest update and cricket score: Royal Challengers keep their hopes alive with a 14-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad. Only a single off the final ball and that will do it for them. The red flags are out and Siraj jumps in the air to soak in the celebrations. RCB are in the race. They climb to the fifth position on the table and still have a very healthy and positive run rate. Things getting interesting on the table. In the end RCB's gigantic total was a little to much for the Sunrisers.

Preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will take on already-qualified table toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad in a must-win Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter with their playoffs chances hanging by a thread.

After registering successive victories over Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab, the Virat Kohli-led RCB are a rejuvenated unit while SRH have been the team to beat this season, having won nine matches out of 12.

RCB are still languishing at the second last position on the table, while SRH are on top of the table with 18 points.

RCB lost seven of their 12 matches so far but the recent turnaround have rekindled hopes of a possible shot at the play-offs albeit some other results also going their way.

Kohli and ace South African batsman AB De Villiers are RCB's key players as far as the batting in concerned.

The pair have combined to pile up nearly half of RCB's total runs this season but the side needs bigger contributions from the likes of Moeen Ali and Corey Anderson.

Kohli has led from the front with 514 runs in 12 games.

De Villiers (358 runs) is next to him, although he has played two games less than the Indian captain.

RCB's bowling is spearheaded by India pacer Umesh Yadav who has looked in inspired form this term.

Umesh has delivered for the team, taking 17 wickets so far.

Coming to the away side, SRH depend quite a lot on opener Shikhar Dhawan (369 runs) and skipper Kane Williamson (544 runs) for inspiration.

Williamson has been a top leader since David Warner was ruled out of the IPL due to his role in the ball tampering incident.

The New Zealand captain would look to consolidate the team's top spot and ensure a top-two finish at the end of the league stage.

Apart from Dhawan and Williamson, Yusuf Pathan (186), Manish Pandey (189) and Shakib Al Hasan (166) have also chipped in at crunch situations for SRH.

The former champions' bowling has been their strength with the likes of Siddharth Kaul (13 wickets), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (8), Sandeep Sharma (8), leg-spinner Rashid Khan (13) and Shakib-Al-Hasan (12) adding a lot of variety to their arsenal.

Teams:

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (Captain), Quinton de Kock (WK), Brendon McCullum, AB de Villiers, Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Chris Woakes, Washington Sundar, Kulwant Khejroliya, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Colin de Grandhomme, Moeen Ali, Manan Vohra, Aniket Choudhary, Navdeep Saini, Murugan Ashwin, Pawan Negi, Mohammed Siraj, Corey Anderson, Parthiv Patel (WK), Aniruddha Joshi, Pavan Deshpande, Tim Southee.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Kane Williamson (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Siddarth Kaul, Deepak Hooda, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Shreevats Goswami, Ricky Bhui, Basil Thampi, T Natarajan, Sachin Baby, Bipul Sharma, Mehdi Hasan, Tanmay Agarwal, Alex Hales, Carlos Brathwaite, Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Nabi, Chris Jordan.

IPL points table: SRH are currently sitting pretty at the top of the table having accumulated 18 points from their 12 games this season. RCB are in seventh position with just 10 points from 12 games. Check out the updated IPL points table here.
