Pune Warriors are already out of IPL 5. They have nothing left to play for but pride. Under the leadership of Sourav Ganguly, Pune Warriors showed some initial promise but then fell flat as the tournament progressed. There is already news in the air that the Pune Warriors are no longer interested in accommodating Sourav Ganguly as a player. Ganguly has clearly failed to fulfill the requirements of a specialist batsman in the T20 format.
Tonight, the Pune Warriors take on a strong Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune. With a host of destructive batsmen in the form of Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, Tillakaratne Dilshan and AB de Villiers, it should be an easy game for the RCB Vs a listless Pune Warriors.
