It has been a season of colossal failure for the Virat Kohli-led side which has delivered way below its expectations. Pacer Tymal Mills, who was bought for a whopping amount at the IPL auction, also failed to light up the season for the Bangalore-based franchise.
Brief scores: Bangalore: 161/6 in 20 overs (Virat Kohli 58, Chris Gayle 48; Pat Cummins 2/22, Shahbaz Nadeem 1/12) vs Delhi.
Attention turns to Feroz Shah Kotla for the last game of this year's IPL league stage.
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.
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.

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.
Bangalore lost Travis Had (2) in the following over, after the Australian fell short of completing two runs as Shreyas Iyer threw from the midwicket at the bowling end. They made a slow start, scoring 37/1 at the end of Powerplay overs (six), with Gayle contributing 32 runs off 24 deliveries. It was the change in bowlers that got the breakthroughs with the wickets of Vishnu and Gayle. Kohli tried for another big shot on the next ball, but Zaheer anticipated it and sent a fuller delivery that messed his timing and it went straight to the fielder.
After a period of calm, during which both batsmen rotated the strike, Gayle cut loose in the twelfth over when he deposited Amit Mishra into the stands at midwicket; Kohli too joined in, as he hit the leg-spinner for a six and a four through midwicket. Karun Nair struggled early on but then got a few quick runs, courtesy the five boundaries he collected; he made 26 from 22 balls before miscuing a pull to the man at midwicket.
Meanwhile, Kohli brought up his fifty - his fourth of the season - off 39 balls, but got out soon after he clobbered Zaheer over deep midwicket for his third six in what could be the former India seamer's final IPL game.
