====================================================================================

TOSS: RCB have won the toss and Kohli has decided to bat first.

Pune Warriors’ bowlers will still need some time to recover from the humiliation they suffered at the hands of Chris Gayle in the previous match. The left-hander scored 175 in the home match against Pune, an innings that had 17 sixes and deflated the bowlers. RCB would want the Jamaican to play a big knock once again as Kohli would himself want to make some significant contribution with the bat. The bowlers have done a decent job so far and Vinay Kumar, Rampaul would be eager to deliver with the ball as a unit.

Finch-led Pune side have struggled to win matches consistently and once again the team management would want the skipper to score a big one as most of the Indian players in the team including Uthappa and Yuvraj Singh have struggled with the bat. Pune need to promote Steven Smith in the batting order so that he can have more time to shape his innings. Despite being impressive, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar hasn’t been able to pick wickets on a regular basis and it could be right time for him to show his abilities with the ball.
