Pune Warriors keen to forget 'Gayle storm': Smith

Raipur: Looking to leave behind the hammering they received from Chris Gayle, Pune Warriors allrounder Steven Smith feels that the team is just one win away from getting their IPL campaign back on track.

Gayle had blasted a 66-ball 175 in a recrod knock against Pune in their last match. "It happens in twenty-twenty game. We got to learn from that. It's a new game on Sunday and we will come with a positive mind right from the beginning," the Australian said ahead of his side's clash with Delhi Daredevils.

Hoping for a good performance from his team which is desperately looking to revive its flagging fortunes in the tournament, he said, although his franchise has won only two off eight matches it was hopeful to win more games in the tournament.

"Winning one or two matches on a trot will bring the team on a winning track," he said. Meanwhile, he also praised performance of India's new fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar, saying he swings the ball well and has a bright future.
