Hyderabad - David Hussey steered Victoria home to win by seven wickets with 25 balls to spare against the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their Champions League Twenty20 match on Thursday.

Victoria’s Andrew McDonald was the destroyer-in-chief as he took 4/21 to help restrict Bangalore to 127/6.

Bangalore gave themselves a good chance for a big score as they were 72 after ten overs, with Manoj Pandey (39) and Rahul Dravid (32) making solid contributions.

However, McDonald spoilt their party, producing clever cutters and changes of pace, and was generally a handful on a pitch that proved to be not great for batting.

Earlier, Royal Challengers Bangalore won the toss and elected to bat.

Victoria took two points into the second round because they beat Delhi who also qualified. Bangalore did not carry over any points.

The Australian side should find themselves more at home in Bangalore after battling on two low and slow pitches in Delhi.

Jacques Kallis was not available for selection, and Dale Steyn got his first match this tournament.
