Even the passionate cricket fans were really impressed after having watched this priceless BTS moment. Here's what they had to say.

RCB hold their nerves to register a close win

After being asked to bat first by DC captain Pant, RCB posted a challenging total of 171/5 from their overs riding on a stupendous batting performance by 'Mr.360' AB de Villiers who took the DC bowlers to the cleaners with a counter-attacking knock after Bangalore were reduced to 60/3 in the ninth over. He remained unbeaten on a 42-ball 75 at a strike rate of 178.57 including three boundaries and five maximums. 

In reply, DC lost their top order and was reeling at 92/4 before the middle-order duo of skipper Rishabh Pant, and, Shimron Hetmyer resurrected the innings with a 78-run stand for the fifth wicket. However, Mohammed Siraj bowled a tight last over and even though Pant did manage to hit a couple of boundaries off the final two deliveries, it was too late by then as they fell short by a run.
