Their campaign in doldrums at the half-way stage, Pune Warriors would be desperate to change the scenario but they face a gigantic challenge when they take on table-toppers Chennai Super Kings.
Languishing at the bottom of the table, Pune Warriors would be keen to repeat the performance they gave a fortnight ago against the same opposition, when they defeated them by 24 runs -- that too in an away match.
But in the days after that, the Allan Donald-coached side has lost four matches on the trot, including last night's game against an equally out of sorts Delhi Daredevils by 15 runs, and the odds are heavily stacked against them.
Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, have been in destructive form, most recently defeating defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders by 14 runs lon Sunday.
