Indian Premier League - 21st match

Royal Challengers Bangalore v Pune Warriors

Royal Challengers Bangalore won by 6 wickets (with 0 balls remaining)

Robin Uthappa to face, we're ready for the start. Zaheer runs in

Three changes for RCB. Appanna comes in for Mohammad Kaif, and there's no S Aravind. In comes Harshal Patel.

Toss: Ganguly has won the toss and chosen to bat. There's no Murali Kartik, he's had to make way for the seamer. Murali's been left out by the hosts, and Dilshan makes his way in. Leaving out Kartik was a tough call, says Ganguly, but there's a bit more for the seamers on this track. Bangalore have strengthened their batting at the expense of their lead spinner. It's Murali's birthday, as well as Anand Rajan's. The replacement for Karthik today is Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
