Big PictureDespite three years of unremitting mediocrity, the fans of Pune Warriors have faithfully turned up to cheer on their side. It will be a testament to their loyalty if they show up in numbers for Warriors' final game of the season, which pits their team against Delhi Daredevils, another side which has had an utterly forgettable season. The only interest in the game will be to see which team avoids the bottom spot, in a season in which both have been inept.
Form guidePune Warriors WLLLL
In the spotlightMost players in either side will be waiting for the season to end, but few want it to finish as desperately as David Warner, who has had four months of woe in India. He arrived long before the IPL, for the Test series in which Australia were comprehensively beaten 4-0 and Daredevils have rarely looked like rising out of the bottom half in the IPL. To top it off, he could be in trouble with Cricket Australia after a series of angry tweets lashing out at an Australia journalist.
