After a string of impressive performance, Rising Pune Supergiant will be disappointed at losing out to Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous encounter but will be raring to go against Royal Challengers Bangalore who has been in horrendous form off late.
Bangalore have played some horrible cricket and are sevent on the points table. Nothing has gone right for them and a loss against Pune will virtually rule them out of the contention for the playoffs.
On the other hand, RPS have played some terrific cricket over the last few matches and despite not having a great bowling attack, they have impressed one and all. They have been inconsitent but find themselves fourth on the points table and very much in contention of the playoffs.
