Ending weeks of speculation, the Cricket Board today indicated in clear terms that Pune Warriors, owned by Sahara Group, would play all their IPL home games this season at Pune only.

As per the schedule, Pune Warriors will commence their home campaign at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium – previously known as Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium — against Kings XI Punjab on April 7.

A long-running dispute over title rights of the newly built stadium on the outskirts of Pune between Sahara Group and MHA resulted in Maharashtra Cricket Association covering the stadium’s name – Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium — in January 2013 with a cloth for alleged default of payment of the contract.

This led to the Sahara Group moving the Bombay High Court over “termination of agreements” and the matter is sub-judice.

As fallout, the Sahara Group wanted to play their home games at other venues leading to the BCCI to try and break the deadlock ahead of the commencement of the IPL on April 3.

The BCCI has not come out with any statement on the resolution of the dispute but the latest schedule has named the venue of Pune Warriors’ home games at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
