IPL 2012: Eye on Warriors` top-order ahead of CSK tiePune: Pulled up by skipper Sourav Ganguly following a lacklustre showing in their previous outing, Pune Warriors batsmen would look to put up a much better display when they take on the formidable Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League, on Saturday.

The Warriors started the tournament on a positive note, notching up wins in their first two matches, till Kings XI Punjab disturbed the momentum.

The Super Kings, on the other hand, have not been their usual self at the start, but the thrilling win over Royal Challengers Bangalore yesterday when they chased down 206, should come as a shot in the arm for the visitors.

True, the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium is set to be packed to the brim by Warriors fans, but going by Chennai`s depth and variety, the visitors are not likely to be too worried about that.

As far as captaincy is concerned, Ganguly led the side well, but is yet to fire with the willow.

Considering that they are not a side packed with experienced international stars, it is important that Ganguly takes the lead himself and inspire the rest who follow him in the batting line-up.


The top-order hasn`t fired yet and quicker the likes of Jesse Ryder, Robin Uthappa, Manish Pandey and Angelo Mathews get into the groove, the better it will be for the Warriors in the nine-team T20 tournament.

Their batting may not seem that formidable but Pune surely have a pretty good bowling attack in Ashok Dinda, Ashish Nehra and leg-spinner Rahul Sharma.

Nehra attributed their seven-wicket loss yesterday to fielding lapses and the failure to play the full quota of 20 overs, and the Warriors would do well to avoid repeating the same mistakes.

The Warriors were bundled out for 115 in 19 overs against Kings XI Punjab.

ganguli should drop RYDER immeadiately from playing 11. He should stay longer at crease otherwise he should come down at 5th position while batting 1st or chasing.His team has to improve catching, fielding etc& needs solid batsmen like m.clarke,immidiately.Ryder is a very lazy player.they have played solid in the opening, everytime u can`t defend low score
