Star batsman Yuvraj Singh said leading new IPL entrant Pune Warriors was a big responsibility but that he was excited to take up the challenge.

“I am looking forward to having an exciting time playing in the IPL. Responsibilities are more, no doubt,” said Yuvraj.

Puree jaan laga key khelengey (We will give it our all),” the 29-year-old added.

Yuvraj had captained Kings XI Punjab in the first two editions and played under Kumar Sangakkara in the previous edition. Now that both Yuvraj and Sangakkara are no more part of the Punjab side, he was asked to rate the Punjab side.

Yuvraj said it was still a good side with players such as Adam Gilchrist, David Hussey, Praveen Kumar and Piyush Chawla in the squad.
