Visakhapatnam: Rising Pune Supergiants take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 40 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) today.
While David Warner and his boys have been performing exceptionally well with a balanced squad, marred with injuries to key four overseas players, Dhoni has had a forgettable campaign so far leading a new franchise.
Dhoni and his men can't afford another loss in order to make it to the playoffs.
Nothing has worked right for Dhoni this season, where RPS have lost seven out of ten matches, and the entire team will have to deliver as a unit to keep their hopes alive in the tournament.
On the other hand, Warner has led from the front on most occasions and with the best pace attack at his disposal, SRH are currently at second spot with six wins from nine matches.
Here is all you need to know about today's match:
