Bangalore Royal Challengers beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 5 wkts
Mark Boucher hit the penultimate ball of the match for four to seal a five-wicket success for the Bangalore Royal Challengers against the Kolkata Knight Riders in Durban.
Boucher dispatched a full toss from off-spinner Chris Gayle to the boundary to allow the Royal Challengers to overhaul a target of 140.
The South African wicketkeeper finished unbeaten on 25 from 13 balls having rescued his side from a middle-order collapse.
Bangalore looked to have laid the platform for a comfortable victory when Shreevats Goswami and Jacques Kallis (23) put on an opening stand of 69 in 11 overs.
But occasional off-spinner Brad Hodge (3-29) took three wickets - Goswami (43), Kevin Pietersen (13) and Virat Kohli (19) - to help reduce the Royal Challengers to 107-4 at the end of the 16th over.
However, Boucher hit two fours and a six to see his side across the winning line in the final over.
Earlier, Royal Challengers skipper Pietersen had claimed a wicket with the first ball of the match.
The England batsman chose to open the bowling with his part-time off-spin and struck immediately when Kolkata captain Brendon McCullum cut straight to Kohli at point.
But a contribution of 40 from McCullum's opening partner Gayle and an unbeaten 43 from Morne van Wyk saw the Knight Riders up to 139-6 from their 20 allocation.
Bangalore's victory moves them above the Chennai Super Kings into sixth in the points table, while Kolkata remain bottom of the eight-team league with just one win from six.
