Watch the live stream between the two sides as top takes on bottom.
It’s a tale of two very different stories in the 2013 IPL today as Pune Warriors India host the Chennai Super Kings.
Chennai have won their last five matches and have jumped to the top of the table with their brilliant form.
Pune in contrast have slumped to the bottom of the league after defeat to fellow IPL strugglers Delhi Daredevils.
The Warriors finished bottom in 2012 and unless they can win some matches soon they look like they might be heading for a repeat performance.
The home side have lacked consistency as they have experimented with Angelo Mathews, Ross Taylor and Aaron Finch as captain over the last few weeks.
The Super Kings are the complete opposite, with their skipper MS Dhoni twice leading his side to dramatic victories with the bat this season and showing the rest of the IPL how to captain by example.
Dhoni has been assisted by the superb form of Australian veteran batsman Mike Hussey, who’s 445 runs so far this campaign have not only helped CSK but has also seen Hussey rise to second in the Orange Cap standings for most runs.
With the ball all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has looked good for Chennai, taking 15 wickets in nine games for the visitors – although his form with the bat could certainly be improved.
