Kolkata Knight Riders v Royal Challengers Bangalore at Durban

KKR v RCB, Match 19: Bangalore clinch last-over thriller

Mark Boucher hit an unbeaten 25 off 13 balls as Bangalore Royal Challengers posted an exciting five-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League at Durban on Wednesday.
Kevin Pietersen's Bangalore needed 10 in the last over to achieve a 140-run target before Boucher smashed spinner Chris Gayle's penultimate delivery for a winning four to help his team register the second victory in six matches. Kolkata have so far won only one of their six games.
Teenager Shreevats Goswami also played a big role in Bangalore's victory, top-scoring with 43. The 19-year-old opener hit six fours in his 46-ball knock. Australian spinner Brad Hodge put pressure on Bangalore with three wickets, but South African wicket-keeper Boucher batted sensibly in the crucial last over to steer his team home. He was named man of the match.
