One of the two new teams introduced to the IPL season 2011 is the Sahara Pune Warriors. It is the Franchise for Pune and owned by Subrato Roy of the prestigious Sahara Group. Geoff marsh will coach the team with the help of the England all rounder Dermot Reeve.

On 8th March 2011 Indian all rounder Yuvraj Singh has been asked to lead the team in IPL 2011.
The logo of the team bears the image of Shivaji Maharaj holding a Spear in his hand and riding his famous horse ‘chetak’ and the team’s name written besides it. The team colors are the same as used for the Indian National Flag i.e. Saffron, white and green.

The Stadium will be named after Subrata Roy Sahara, the chairman and Managing Worker of Sahara Group.
Famous overseas players like Graeme Smith, Tim Paine, Jesse Ryder, Callum Ferguson, Nathan McCullum, and Mitchell Marsh will demonstrate their batting and hard hitting skills for the team. Whereas, Angelo Mathews, Alfonso Thomas and also Yuvraj Singh who is demonstrating his all round skills in the World Cup 2011 will fill in the shoes for All-Rounder in the coming games. Robin Uthappa and Manish Pandey who have been picked up from the Royal Challengers Bangalore will also be interested in putting up a nice show for Pune in this IPL. The Pace attack will include the experienced Ashish Nehra who seems just fit for now and Gerome Taylor, Wayne Parnell and other medium paced bowlers and All-Rounders revolving around them.
