Pune: May 2, 2013

Royal Challengers Bangalore will aim to get back to winning ways in their IPL 2013 clash against the Pune Warriors India on Thursday.

It won’t be an easy task for Aaron Finch‘s boys as they are up against a formidable Bangalore side which boasts of the big-hitting Chris Gayle.

On paper, Bangalore appear to be the overwhelming favourites with six wins in 10 games, while Pune are languishing at the bottom with just two wins in 10 matches.

The Allan Donald-coached Pune side would be eager to forget the nightmarish experience it encountered the last time these two teams met on April 23, when Bangalore registered the highest team score of 263 and Gayle massacred the bowling to score a record 66-ball 175.

The Warriors have been woefully out of sorts, inconsistent in all departments. Their batting and bowling hasn’t clicked together and this is what cost them against two-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday, when they lost by 37 runs.
