'Semi finals are different ball game'

Centurion: Anil Kumble who lead Royal Challengers to semi finals expressed his happiness over team's progress and feels from here on it is any-body's game as on a given day any side can outsmart the other.

Bangalore Royal Challengers on Thursday thrashed Deccan Chargers by 12-runs to clinch third spot in the points table and qualify for the semifinals where they will meet Chennai Super Kings on Saturday.

Deccan had already qualified for the semis will meet Delhi Daredevils on Friday.

"It's a great thing for us considering what happened last year."

Even the start, we started well this year and then slumped to four losses in a row and then came back again," Kumble said after the match. "Happy to get into the semis."

From here anybody can win on their day. So we back ourselves with the way we played in the last four games.

Its been brilliant and will take this confidence going into the semifinal," he added.

The Bangalore skipper was full of praise for young Manish Pandey who scored a brilliant 114 off just 73 balls to set the platform for the victory.

"Brilliant hundred. Manish had a few opportunities but don't get to bat."
