Sanjiv Goenka's 'New Rising' are owners of Pune franchise while Keshav Bansal's Intex successfully bid for Rajkot in a reverse bidding process held in New Delhi on December 8.

"In three days time, Pune or Rajkot will be my new summer destination. Looking forward to a new beginning and more challenges," Ashwin wrote on his twitter page.

Then with a bit of modesty, India's most successful bowler in Test matches this season, wrote about the improbable.

"If I don't make it to both of these teams, I will go into the auction. Does not matter who picks me, all I need is new challenges. No stagnating," the Chennai-born spinner said.

With lowest bid of Rs -16 crore, Goenka's 'New Rising' will get a first go at India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
