Match 31 IPL 2013 –Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Pune Warriors
Date – Tue Apr 23
Time – 4:00 pm i.e 10:30 GMT | 16:00 IST
Venue – M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore
Today in the 31st match of IPL Season 6, Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on Pune Warriors India at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. RCB who have won 5 out of 7 matches will be eying another win today to get on top of points table where as Pune has just 2 wins out of 7 and thus need to win this match to increase the points tally.
RCB who are high on morale with back to back wins will be relying much on the likes of Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli in the batting department.In bowling the unsung hero R Vinay Kumar holds the purple cap and will be the key bowler for RCB.
Pune on the other hand have problems in plenty, when the batsmen play well, the bowlers fumble and vice versa. In the last match against Punjab, they failed to defend 186 and against Sunrisers they failed to chase down 120. Also stats reveal how badly they had performed against RCB. They have lost all the three matches played against RCB so far and thus this will be stat they wish to change today.
