TOSS: Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid won the toss and elected to bat first against Pune Warriors India at Jaipur.


Faced with the daunting task of winning all their remaining matches for having any chance of making the playoffs, Rajasthan Royals would fancy a facile victory when they take on the struggling Pune Warriors in an IPL match on Sunday.

Royals are lying sixth with 12 points from 13 matches and have to win the remaining three to keep their playoff hopes alive.

On the other hand, Pune are at the eighth position with only eight points in kitty from 14 matches, close defeats against Delhi Daredevils and Chennai Super kings hurting them the most. Add to this the leadership crisis that the team is facing due to an off-colour skipper Sourav Ganguly.

He rested himself last night but promised to be back for this game despite team owner Subrata Roy`s claims that Ganguly would play a mentor`s role from next season.

Royals, on the other hand, have no such worries and have an inspirational leader in Rahul Dravid. They have played good cricket against fancied rivals but have been guilty of frittering away opportunities.

They might have the edge against the Pune but a victory here would not be enough as they will have to win all remaining three and pray that the other results also go in their favour.

The hosts would like to start afresh from this juncture and make full use of every opportunity.
