Chargers crushed by Bangalore in IPL

8:45 am on 25 April 2010

Ross Taylor's Bangalore Royal Challengers have crushed the Deccan Chargers by nine wickets to take out the Indian Premier League's third place play-off and book a Twenty20 Champions League berth.

Chennai and Mumbai meet in the IPL final tomorrow, also at Mumbai.

The Chargers could only manage a miserable total of 82 with the bat in their innings at Mumbai - the lowest of this year's IPL.

The Royal Challengers easily hauled that target in, making 86 for one.

Bangalore will now take part in the next Champions League campaign along with Chennai and Mumbai who met in the IPL final on Monday in Mumbai.
