TOSS: Pune Warriors have won the toss and have decided to bat first.

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


Rajasthan hold the third position in the rankings table. They have been a very strong tem at home but have been poor in away matches. Shane Watson has been very impressive with both the ball and bat and Sanju Samson has been a revelation in the series so far. The likes of Ajinkya Rahane and Rahul Dravid need to contribute a bit more to the cause of the team.

Pune Warriors, with just two wins from eleven matches, have been terrible in all departments in the tournament thus far. Barring Finch and Uthappa none of their batsmen have struck form in the series. Their bowling is comparatively stronger with Bhuvneshwar Kumar leading from the front. Their bowling in the death overs has been a cause of concern though. Yuvraj Singh needs to click for Pune to have any chance of beating Rajasthan at home.
