Royal Challengers Bangalore defeat Kings XI Punjab by 8 wickets with 7 balls to spare. Demoralizing defeat for Kings XI after they had piled up 204! Blinder of a knock from Uthappa which changed the match and Kallis took care of steering the side through by batting the entire distance! Not to forget Manish Pandey's sparkling cameo.
