Bottom dwellers Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) ended their disappointing Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign with a 10-run win over sixth-placed Delhi Daredevils in an inconsequential contest at the Ferozeshah Kotla here on Sunday.

Despite the win, Royal Challengers Bangalore finish the season as wooden spooners with just seven points off 14 matches.

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. However, Sky Sports now own the rights to the tournament and will be showing every match live on Sky Sports 2 in 2017. Both aggressive batsman, they pulled free of Delhi's tight bowling and brought up the fifty-run partnership for the second wicket in 41 balls, after targeting spinner Amit Mishra's over for 19 runs. But Daredevils could manage only three and were bowled out for 151. Zaheer, after breaking his five-match wicket drought in the last game, finished with figures of 1 for 31 in what could be the 38-year-old last IPL match.

That happened off the first ball of the over.

It was soon the pair of Iyer and Rishabh Pant that anchored Delhi Daredevils innings towards normalcy.

Off-spinner Head made further problems for Delhi, removing Anderson (3) and Cummins (7) in the 16th over, as the hosts reeled at 113/ 6, still requiring 49 runs. It may have been an inconsequential match in context of this IPL, but Kohli walked to huge crowd applause from his home crowd at Kotla and gave them something to watch. When we look back, we can see we needed experience in these sorts of games.

Gayle set the tone by taking two boundaries off the first over from Zaheer Khan and struck Mohammed Shami for a couple of sixes before Vishnu Vinod (3) played on to a delivery from Pat Cummins. So Delhi has to go field first.

However, Gayle fell two runs short of a half century, as Shahbaz Nadeem had him caught at midwicket for a rather soft dismissal. The DD captain though had the last laugh as he threw one wide, and Kohli couldn't control his lofted drive and holed out to long off. Kohli was dismissed for 58 (45 balls, 3 fours, 3 sixes) and RCB had slipped to 118-4.
