For the team that created record of the highest bid and is worth $370 million (Rs 19 billion approximately), Pune Warriors met it’s end after just three editions. With just 4 wins each to show in their 2011, 2012 and 2013 editions, and multiple captains, they have off-field problems too, and were removed after 2013 edition.
Finch, Angelo Mathews, Yuvraj, Clarke, Steven Smith and Ganguly captained them in the three editions.
Due to their withdrawal they did not get the chance to bid for the players in 2012. As a result in 2013 they could only get the leftovers.
