AB de Villiers blasted a whirlwind 17-ball 47 at the death after Tillakaratne Dilshan’s strokeful fifty to help Royal Challengers Bangalore notch up a sensational five-wicket victory over Deccan Chargers at M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

De Villiers emerged as the game changer as he smashed five fours and three sixes to help RCB score 72 runs in the last 3.5 overs and overhaul Deccan’s target of 182 with seven balls to spare.

In the 18th over, de Villiers tore apart his countrymate Dale Steyn, smashing two sixes and as many fours to accumulate 23 runs.

Chasing 182 to win, Dilshan single-handedly led the runchase and forged a 91-run opening partnership with Chris Gayle (26) to set the foundation but the hosts slipped to 117 for 4 before de Villiers played a blinder to take RCB to the fifth position in the points table.

Earlier, Shikhar Dhawan smashed a strokeful unbeaten 73 to help bottom-placed Deccan Chargers put a challenging score on board. Opener Dhawan cracked 10 fours and one six in his 52-ball innings and forged 86 runs and 82 runs with Daniel Harris (47) and Cameron White (45) respectively.
