Wicketkeeper-batsman KS Bharat showed incredible composure as he hit an unbeaten 78 off just 52 balls while Glenn Maxwell rode his luck to smash 51 not out from 33 deliveries as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) edged past Delhi Capitals (DC) in a last-ball thriller at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday.

With five runs needed from the final delivery, Bharat held his nerve and smashed a six straight over DC pacer Avesh Khan’s head to turn the nail-biting game in favour of RCB.

Fro Delhi, Anrich Nortje delivered a terrific penultimate over, conceding just four runs and bringing down the equation to 15 off 6 six balls from 19 off 12.

However, Bharat and Maxwell punished Khan, who lacked discipline in the final over.

Earlier, after being put in to bat first, DC got off to a flying start with openers Shikar Dhawan (43) and Prithvi Shaw (48), adding 88 runs in just 10.1 overs.

Shimron Hetmyer (29) got out on the last ball of the innings, with DC posting 164/5 on the board.
