Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Delhi Daredevils by five wickets in the battle of the Indian Premier League basement sides on Saturday.
After being put into bat at the Feroz Shah Kotla, the Daredevils stumbled to 16 for two with England opener Jason Roy the second man out after hitting a four and a six, before being clean bowled by leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal for just 12.
However, a brilliant third-wicket partnership of 93 between captain Shreyas Iyer (32) and wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant (61) saw the home side pass 100, with the latter hitting four maximums and five boundaries in his entertaining half century.
It was a quick-fire stand of 61 in only 29 deliveries for the fourth wicket between Vijay Shankar and Abhishek Sharma though that really gave the innings momentum, with the Daredevils No 6 launching four sixes while compiling 46 from just 23 balls.
England off-spinner Moeen Ali was the pick of the Royal Challengers bowlers, taking 1-25 from his four overs - including the key wicket of top-scorer Pant - while Chahal, who opened the bowling with his leggies, was also impressive in recording figures of 2-28 from his four overs.
Chasing 182 to win at a run rate of just over nine an over, the Royal Challengers made a stuttering start after losing both openers with just 18 runs on the board.
Ali was the first man to go for just one, caught by Prithvi Shaw off the bowling of New Zealand left-arm paceman Trent Boult, but the fall of those two early wickets only brought Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers to the crease.
The dynamic duo proceeded to smash the ball to all parts in a breathtaking stand of 118 off only 11 overs, before Amit Mishra had the Royal Challengers skipper caught behind having made 70 from 40 balls.
The experienced De Villiers, however, managed to see his team secure victory with an over to spare after a calculated 72 not out from a mere 37 deliveries, with four fours and six sixes, including a maximum to finish the contest off.
Meanwhile, Boult was the most successful of the Daredevils bowlers with figures of 2-40 from his allotted four overs and Sandeep Lamichhane the most economical after registering 1-25.
