De Villiers leads Challengers home
Deccan Chargers remain bottom of the IPL after an astonishing late onslaught led by AB de Villiers earned Royal Challengers Bangalore victory.
Deccan posted a total of 181 for two in their 20 overs, Shikhar Dhawan leading the way with 73 not out from 52 balls at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
The opener hit 10 fours and a six and put on 86 with Daniel Harris (47) and 82 with Cameron White, who smashed 45 from 24 balls with two fours and three sixes.
Bangalore's reply started well as Tillakaratne Dilshan, with 71 from 54 balls, dominated an opening stand of 91 with Chris Gayle.
But that came to an end in the 11th over and the hosts slumped to 117 for four in the 16th before Mayank Agarwal got the chase back on track with a cameo of 18 from six balls, featuring two sixes.
De Villiers battered them over the winning line, finishing unbeaten on 47 from just 17 remarkable deliveries including five fours and three maximums.
