Bangalore: After a clinical win against Rajasthan Royals, table-toppers Royal Challengers Bangalore will be keen to continue their fantastic run when they lock horns with the beleaguered Pune Warriors in the Pepsi IPL on Tuesday.
Royal Challengers are on a roll after winning five matches they have played at home this season and would not want to fritter away their best chance to gain two more vital points before they play their next six games away.
The games would be a difficult proposition, considering they have lost both their away games against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings. More Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore were too good for Pune Warriors in both their clashes last year.
In the first game, the Warriors made a hefty 182 but it was not enough against a rampaging Chris Gayle who smashed eight sixes. AB de Villiers then finished the job off the very last ball.
Gayle was in sizzling form in the return game too, smashing six sixes in his 57, as RCB piled up 173. Pune lost two wickets in the first over and limped to 138/9.
