Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will square off in the last league match of IPL 2017 at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi on Sunday evening.

But Daredevils could manage only three and were bowled out for 151.

The visitors lost Kedar Jadhav and Sachin Baby in the following two overs, before Pawan Negi (13 not out) collected three consecutive boundaries in the final over - two of them through thick outside edges.

RCB has been the most disappointing team of this season.

The Maharashtra batsman quickened his running but by then Cummins had collected and made a pinpoint accurate throw at the non-strikers' end.

On May 12, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad had demanded an inquiry into the land deals related to Yadav's daughter Misa Bharti. Tweeting in reaction to the raids, Lalu Yadav said, "RSS-BJP are scared of Lalu's name".

In the 12th over, seamer Harshal Patel dealt RCB a double blow when he sent back Iyer and Marlon Samuels off successive deleveries, to give RCB the upper hand and leave Daredevils in trouble at 87 for four. Finally Gayle showed some pwer hitting shots to score 48 off 28 balls; Kohli was also back in form scoring 58 off 45 balls.

Even as Gayle threatened, Daredevils got the first breakthrough when Cummins rattled Vishnu Vinod's stumps after getting a bottom edge, the bowling change working for the home team.

The bowlers brilliantly to defend 161 run on a pitch that was on the slower side.

Gayle, who has endured a poor IPL by his standards, fell tamely to Shahbaz Nadeem to miss out on a half-century, but Kohli had his fourth fifty of the tournament in the 15th over after Head was run out. The team owners believe that not only will their goal of getting points solved but they will also do a service to the nation reeling under the pressure of water scarcity.

India and RCB captain Virat Kohli has not been at his best in this year's IPL as his side became the first team to be eliminated from the tenth edition. Despite not producing necessary results for a place in the playoff, the performances of local youngsters - Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson - would have pleased coach Rahul Dravid, who will be hoping for a positive finish to the season.
