Two very contrasting teams take on each other in the third IPL clash for both franchises.
It couldn’t be a more different story at the early stage of the 2013 IPL season for these two sides, with Pune Warriors losing their opening two matches and Rajasthan Royals with a 100% record.
Pune will be looking to banish the memories of the heavy eight wicket defeat they were put to by Kings XI Punjab on Sunday.
For Rajasthan however it is a target of three wins out of three as captain Rahul Dravid has been in good form with the bat. West Indian seamer Kevon Cooper has also taken the joint most wickets in the IPL this year with six.
