Sahara was the team sponsor of India from the last 11 years. But due to the sternness of BCCI, Sahara was forced to think so. Sahara bought the IPL franchise of Pune Warriors for Rs. 1, 702 crore and this is the most expensive franchise of IPL5. BCCI was about to lose around Rs. 2, 234 crore as Sahara was about to pullout their hands from the team sponsorship.
