Leading IPL side is big responsibility: Yuvraj

April 07, 2011 17:34 IST

Star batsman Yuvraj Singh, who played a key role in India's World Cup win, said leading new IPL entrants Pune Warriors is big responsibility but he is excited to take up the challenge. 

"I am looking forward to having an exciting time playing in the IPL. Responsibilities are more, no doubt," Yuvraj said after paying obeisance at the place of his spiritual Guru Baba Ajit Singh in Punjab's Fatehgarh Sahib.

"Puree jaan laga key khelengey (We will give our best)," the 29-year-old added.

Yuvraj had skippered Kings XI Punjab in the first two editions and played under Sri Lanka's 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. 

After reaching his hometown in Chandigarh on Thursday, Yuvarj and his mother Shabnam visited Hansali and few other Gurudwaras.
