While a 79-run partnership for the second wicket between opening batsman Devdutt Paddikal (35) and captain Virat Kohli (43) laid the foundation for Royal Challengers, it was wicket-keeper batsman AB de Villiers’ 37th IPL half-century which sealed the chase in the last over.

Having scored 55* (22) with the help of one four and six sixes in a match-winning 77-run partnership alongside Gurkeerat Singh Mann (19 not out) including three consecutive sixes off Royals pacer Jaydev Unadkat in the penultimate over, de Villiers was awarded the ‘Man of the Match’ award and rightly so.
