End of what has been an absolute super sunday! 'Miracle' Singh Dhoni so nearly pulled it off for Chennai Super Kings, but the format which is defined by fine margins, didn't go CSK's way. However,  for RCB, they still breathe in the competition by that same fine margin. That's all we have for you tonight. As always we have enjoyed your company, hope to see for tomorrow's game between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals. Tune in to our LIVE blog from 6:30 pm onwards.

Parthiv Patel is named the Player of the Match

Patel: I think it was great performance. We tried to play a few shots initially. But we realized it wasn't the usual 200 wicket it was about 170-180 wicket. I was batting well, was talking to coaches. It was just a matter of choosing my shots after first six overs. I chose my bowlers, whom I should target and took singles off the others.  Last ball, I knew the ball was going to be outside off stump and if MS missed it they would run a bye. We knew the shorter side of the ground was towards the leg side. I had taken my gloves off since the third delivery, because I knew there was run out chance. Luckily it came off. Have been saying that we are a very good side

00:13 (IST)

Virat Kohli, winning captain: A lot of emotions. We were outstanding with the ball till 19th over. Defending 162 on that pitch was an outstanding effort. What happened on last ball was the last thing I would have imagined but cricket is a game of small margins. MS Dhoni did what he does very well and gave us a scare. Ball wasn't coming on to the bat in first six overs. At the halfway mark we thought if we get to 170-75 it will be a good total but we lost wickets again, so at mid-innings break we thought we were 15 runs short. Well looking at this game in hindsight, you can say Moeen Ali should have batted higher. Having one game left for him in the season, he might come up and enjoy himself. Saini understands his strengths and limitations and was outstanding.

 RCB vs CSK Expert's Voice

Crazy scenes at the Chinnaswamy. MSD timed the finish as only he can. When even the staunchest of CSK fans would have lost hope, he took them to the verge of the unlikeliest of wins only to be held short by the extreme drama of the last ball. The first six in the over set it up. When Dhoni hits those big ones in the last over, you know he means business. Umesh would have known his mood. All the pressure was on him after that. He conceded two more sixes leaving Dhoni just 2 to get off the last ball. Then miraculously, he bowled the perfect slow leg cutter that missed Dhoni's bat, and Parthiv threw the stumps down in a jiffy finding Thakur just short. The thrilling nature of the finish aside, CSK have a lot of soul searching to do as a team. They seem like a one-man army at the moment where Dhoni has to do all the running. As the playoff beckons, more players will have to put their hand up and make winning contributions.

23:59 (IST)

MS Dhoni, CSK captain: We did really well to restrict RCB to below par, but I think it was more of a calculation mistake that we lost wickets early on. We keep saying that T20 is all about taking risks, but you can still calculate. I think it was still difficult at death if you bowl that back of the length. Slightly spongy surface and it wasn't coming on to the bat. A lot of boundaries were needed, right now you can calculate, one run there, and two runs there and we just lost by one run. But you can also say we missed some boundaries.

19.6 RCB WIN BY 1 RUN. OUT! The tinniest margins of victory for RCB. Extraordinary scenes in Bengaluru, the TV umpire to decide the fate of the match. MS Dhoni, who has belted everything today, misses to connect the final ball, that is bowled at length outside off. They scamper for a bye but Shardul Thakur despite the dive doesn't make his ground before Parthiv's bullseye. WOW! What a finish we have had. The TV Umpire is referred and guess what Thakur doesn't make his ground by litreally millimeters..

Heartbreak for MS Dhoni. Heartbreak for CSK but the heart continues to beat for RCB. Their hopes are alive in the tournament almost symbolic of the win, but the night is all about MS Dhoni, who almost once again pulled off a miracle.

IPL 12 Match 39 RCB vs CSK at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru: RCB have won from the tinniest of the margins. Extra-ordinary scenes here, the TV umpire to decide the fate of the match. MS Dhoni, who has belted everything today, misses to connect the final ball, that is bowled at length outside off. They scamper for a single. For a bue. Shardul Thakur puts in the dive but Parthiv has hit the bull's eye. WOW! What a finish we have had. The TV Umpire is referred and guess what Chahar doesn't make the ground by litreally millimeters there. Heartbreak for MS Dhoni. Heartbreak for CSK but the heart continues to beat for RCB. Their hopes are alive in the tournament. MS Dhoni almost pulled off a miracle once again.

However, RCB's sensational win over KKR in their previous match in which Kohli slammed a century must act as the source of inspiration as their playoffs hopes continue to hang by a thread. Bangalore lost five of their first seven games in 2016 and still made to the playoffs after winning six out of last seven games and Kohli would hope his players continue to believe in their abilities as they look for a similar turnaround.

The focus for Kohli and team management would be on their bowling. Despite the arrival of Dale Steyn, RCB conceded 203 against KKR as Andre Russell took them to the cleaners.

Meanwhile, a win on Sunday would take CSK to 16 points and that should be enough for them to qualify for the playoffs.

CSK are coming into the match after a loss against SRH in the previous game. MS Dhoni missed the SRH match due to a stiff back but he is expected to be fit in time for the RCB clash.

In the 23 matches played between these two sides in IPL so far, CSK have won 15 of them while RCB won seven and one of the match finished in a tie.
