Deccan Chargers remained bottom of the Indian Premier League table after an astonishing late onslaught led by AB de Villiers earned Royal Challengers Bangalore victory at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Deccan posted a total of 181 for two in their 20 overs, Shikhar Dhawan leading the way with 73 not out from 52 balls. 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 the hosts slumped to 117 for four before Mayank Agarwal's cameo of 18 from six balls. De Villiers battered them over the winning line, finishing unbeaten on 47 from just 17 remarkable deliveries including five fours and three sixes.
