There are several combinations of results that will still see Royal Challengers Bangalore advance to the IPL play-offs, but one thing is common to all of them: Virat Kohli's men simply have to win their two remaining games. De Villiers and Ali hit half-centuries to lay the platform for a big total as RCB did not start well, losing both openers - Parthiv Patel (1) and captain Virat Kohli (12) - early on.

Rashid first saw the back of de Villiers brilliantly caught by Dhawan at deep backward square before packing Moeen one ball later, caught behind by Shreevats Goswami.
