IPL Match 46 - Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Pune Warriors Live Streaming

Royal Challengers vs Pune Warriors Live Streaming

Royal Challengers Bangalore face Pune Warriors for the second time this year. Who can forget the match when they played against each other for the first time in IPL 2013. Pune Warriors suffered an onslaught from Chris Gayle who single handedly took RCB home. He smashed 17 sixes and 13 fours to score highest individual score in IPL history (175 not out).

Pune Warriors would certainly be wary of Chris Gayle who has never failed against them. These are his individual scores so far against Pune Warriors - 49, 81, 57 and then 175! Will it be the day for Pune Warriors when they will send him back to the pavilion cheaply or will it again be a day belonging to Chris Mighty Gayle!
Will the Gayle Storm hit Pune today?
Royal Challengers Bangalore are on the second position in the points tally. After enjoying first position for few days they lost few matches to slip down to second meanwhile Chennai Super Kings won six matches on the trot to clinch the top position.

RCB can't feel comfortable as teams like Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad aren't too far from them in terms of points and couple of losses can take RCB out of the top four. Meanwhile Pune Warriors are lingering at the bottom of points tally. Their inclusion in the play-offs look almost impossible. Still they can play a role of party spoilers and create some big upsets in the remaining matches.

RCB's batting will rely a lot on Gayle, Kohli and AB de Villiers, For Pune, batsmen like Yuvraj and Uthappa need to convert their starts into big knocks. Aaron Finch and Steve Smith are putting in a lot of efforts but after all cricket is a team game. It can be won only if the whole team contributes to wins.

Pune Warriors have never won a match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. This could be their best opportunity where they have nothing to lose plus they have the home advantage as well. After today's fixture, Pune plays Rajasthan Royals at Jaipur and RCB travels to Mohali to take on the Kings XI Punjab.
