Kieran Pollard's 70 runs in 47 deliveries helped Mumbai Indians withstand a fiery spell, including a hat-trick, from leg-spinner Samuel Badree as the visitors registered a four-wicket win over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to go top of the Indian Premier League (IPL) with six points on Friday.

In pursuit of RCB's 142/5, Mumbai had a horrendous start as Badree snared a hat-trick in the third over, removing Parthiv Patel (3), Mitchell McClanaghan (0) and Rohit Sharma (0) to plunge the visitors to 7/4, with opener Jos Buttler (2) already being dismissed by Stuart Binny in the second over.

Kedar Jadhav's fiery half century helped Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) beat Delhi Daredevils (DD) by 15 runs in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Saturday.

The Maharashtra batsman not only blasted a quick-fire 37-ball 69, but more importantly shared a 66-run partnership for the fourth wicket with Stuart Binny (16) to help the hosts post a fighting total of 157/7.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad edged home favourites Royal Challengers Bangalore by 8 runs in a thrilling final to be crowned the 2016 Indian Premier League Champions. In what was a terrific advertisement for the game, more than 400 runs were scored and 14 wickets fell as an entertaining contest went down to the final over with Bhuvneshwar Kumar holding his nerve, not for the first time this season, to defend the 18 runs his teammates had left him with to bowl his side to a deserving win.

Hyderabad won the toss and surprised everyone by opting to bat first. The visitors got off to a solid start with David Warner in excellent form, smashing 69 off 38 balls. The Sunrisers' skipper shared a 69 run stand for the opening wicket with Shikhar Dhawan, who chipped in with 28.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore were in 7th place in the IPL Standings barely a fortnight back, they completed what has been a rather remarkable turnaround, winning their 5th game on the bounce to take second place and the spoils that go with it by beating the Delhi Daredevils by 6 wickets in the final group stage match of Season 9 of the Indian Premier League.

Their latest win takes RCB up to second spot, which means they will enjoy home comforts when they entertain the table topping Gujarat Lions at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Tuesday in the Qualifier for the Final, giving them two bites of the cherry at making the IPL Final. RCB's win also relegates the Sunrisers Hyderabad to third place, forcing them into an instant rematch against the side that beat them earlier today, the Kolkata Knight Riders at Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi on Wednesday.

Nine stitches to repair a split-webbing on his left hand did not prevent Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli from taking the field on Wednesday night, and fans of the club will be happy that he did, as the irrepressible 27 year old smashed his fourth ton of what has been an exceptional season for the Delhi lad as he led his side to yet another win, one which takes them to the dizzying heights of second place in the Indian Premier League standings, ahead of three other teams also on 14 points courtesy of a better net run rate.

And than net run rate for the Royal Challengers could well be worth a point in itself as the side racked up a third straight win, this time by another ridiculous margin of 82 runs after the rain had reduced their contest with the Kings XI Punjab to 15 overs a side.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore continued to make a late dash for the play-off berths, following up their impressive thrashing of the Gujarat Lions at the weekend with an equally exciting 9 wicket rout of the Kolkata Knight Riders in front of a capacity crowd at Eden Gardens.

The Royal Challengers won the toss and invited their hosts the Kolkata Knight Riders to have a bat. KKR produced a stop start innings, recovering from losing Robin Uthappa for just 2 to add 76 for the second wicket as Gautam Gambhi (51) and Manish Pandey (50) hit matching half-centuries. Both batsmen scored their runs freely, Gambhir taking 34 balls, while Pandey batted a ball longer.

The Mumbai Indians reignited their hopes of making the play-offs for the 2016 edition of the Indian Premier League by picking up a much needed 6 wicket win over the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Having put the Royal Challengers in to bat, the Mumbai Indians did terrifically to restrict their hosts to just 151 runs in their 20 overs, despite picking up just the 4 wickets. Those 4 wickets were big ones though as RCB slid early to 17-2 after the all New Zealand new ball pair of Tim Southee and Mitchell McClenaghan got rid off Chris Gayle (5) and Virat Kohli (7), respectively.
