Kohli: We wanted that sort of a performance. This might be a momentum change for us. It was a timely win for us. I had to and told the guys to visualise who you are playing against. The boys responded beautifully. We know we are a team that can play like that, it was the difference today. The intensity was top notch and one that any captain can be proud of. I didn't want to let things go like they were, but it's all about believing that you can go out there and win. Definitely we are the ones that are batting mainly for RCB. ABD has to come in at No.3, he is the best batsman in the world and was a pleasure batting with him today.

Watson: We had a really good crack out there (talking about the bowling). We were short on runs. Bangalore were superb today. They outplayed us in all departments. Virat (Kohli) and ABD then finished the game off. 160-170 was a minimum on this wicket. There is no excuse to losing a game. As long as we learn from it and perform better in the next game. We just need to turn this momentum around. We should make sure we get more things right next game

RCB won by 9 wickets.
