Chennai, Apr 18: Defending champions Chennai Super Kings would look to get over the disappointment of three losses when they take on Pune Warriors on their home turf here tomorrow, aiming to extract revenge on the visitors for defeat in their previous IPL match.


With three defeats from five games so far, including the one against Pune Warriors, the Super Kings have just four points. But they are in a familiar situation as in the previous two editions of the tournament.

In 2010, they were on the brink of elimination before they bounced back and won the competition, similarly in the last edition too, they came from behind to emerge victorious.

Pune, who have six points and better net run-rate than Chennai, would though start as favourites tomorrow.

Given the trend in this edition of the IPL, it requires a dash of recklessness to predict the outcome, but the Super Kings have been in this situation before and the experience should see them past the Warriors.

The Super Kings would be looking towards their skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni to provide some spark, like he did in the previous seasons, which had turned their fortunes around.

The hosts would be happy to be playing in front of their home crowd and hope to repeat their performance of the last game here when they snatched a sensational five-wicket victory in the very last ball against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Chennai will also take heart from the fact that the three defeats that they have suffered this season were close matches and the reverses were mainly due to their inability to fire as a unit.
