Jaipur: Pune Warriors India are already out of play-offs contention but they can very well spoil Rajasthan Royals' party when these sides meet here at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Sunday.
Rajasthan have won six of their 10 matches so far and need to win at least two of their remaining five matches to put themselves at ease. On paper, it doesn't look like a big task but it wouldn't be that easy considering that the lesser teams are hell-bent to salvage some pride during the business end of the tournament.
Rajasthan had a horrible outing against Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday night after their batsman could only muster a lowly 132. They can't afford to have another bad day like that. Overall, under Rahul Dravid's leadership, Rajasthan have blown hot and cold so far. It's about time that they brought some consistency into their game.
Rahul Dravid and Ajinkya Rahane scored quick fifties to give Rajasthan a flying start and Binny played a cameo of 32 runs to give Rajasthan a thrilling victory.
