Royal Challengers Bangalore have lost another final match in IPL, thus not winning even one tournament in Indian Premier League. The favourites of the tournament were on a roll, with five back to back wins. However luck ran out of them in the all important final which was held in their home ground in Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.

Winning the toss, David Warner of Sun Risers Hyderabad decided to bat, which was an excellent decision. Bowling was their strength and they decided to back their strength instead of getting scared of RCB's batting line up. And also it is great to have big scores in grand finale, as it will automatically put pressure on the chasing team.

After having a good start, SRH faltered in middle overs. However cameo by Cutting in the climax helped the team to post a mammoth total of 208 runs. They surely scored 20 runs more than expected which helped the team to win the match.

RCB got off to a great start with Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli getting a 100 run opening partnership. However wickets started to fall quickly and at the end Bhuvaneshwar Kumar's yorkers added more trouble and RCB lost by 8 runs.

So RCB has again lost, proving it's chokers tags. The team which was almost out of the tournament came back with a bang. Winning back to back matches helped the team and they were the first team to enter finals. However in the finals they succumbed to pressure. Their journey is similar to that of South Africa's journey in World Cup. South Africa, which is one of the best teams in the world have not been able to win a tournament. This has got them chokers tag, as they fail in important matches

The bowling attack of RCB again struggled. After performing well in last few matches, they performed poorly in the all important final. Virat trusted too much on Shane Watson, who gave 61 runs in 4 overs. If he had controlled in death overs, RCB would have won the match easily. 

RCB was easily the most entertaining team in IPL. The matches against Gujarat Lions or the 15 over match against Kings XI Punjab were easily the best matches of tournament.

Virat Kohli's four centuries in a tournament is the biggest highlight. We do not know which player can beat the record in future. ABD's sixes and KL Rahul's cricketing shots were also praised. In bowling Chahal and Watson made great impact. If Stuart Clark was playing, the team would have been more deadlier.

Speaking about the match, Vinay, a hardcore RCB fan said, " It was disappointing. Even after SRH scored so many runs, I was very confident of RCB winning. Only RCB could chase so many runs. The chase was also going in good way. However back to back wickets of Kohli and ABD ended our dream run. If anyone was there till last, we would have won. Anyway I am happy that even though we were almost out of the tournament, we reached the finals as favourite, showing our strength. Thank you Virat for leading our team. Win or lose, we all are with you."

Ajith, a young cricketer from Mangaluru was however disappointed with Virat for leaving Sarfaraz Khan out of the team. Sarfaraz was a better batsman than Binny and Baby, and he feels Sarfaraz would have done better job in yesterday's match.

Everything said and done, the best team won the match. SRH deserved the trophy, buy my heart goes out to ABD and Kohli. Both deserved the trophy. However RCB won hearts with it's performance. We are sure that in the next season, RCB will entertain us more and they will win the tournament.
