IPL 2022: KL Rahul likely to lead Goenka’s Lucknow franchise in upcoming season

Star batsman KL Rahul is likely to lead the newly included Lucknow based IPL franchise in IPL 2022. The cricketer has been part of Punjab Kings since 2018 and has led the team in the 2019, 2020 and 2021 seasons of IPL. However, in his captaincy, Punjab Kings did not even make the playoffs.

Earlier in October, BCCI included two new teams to make the competition even more entertaining for the upcoming seasons of IPL, Lucknow and Ahmedabad becoming the two new franchises. The Lucknow IPL team was purchased by RP Sanjiv Goenka Group (RPSG) for a mammoth Rs 7090 crores outbidding others in October.

While doing so BCCI also announced that there will be a mega auction before the commencement of the new season, in which every team will be allowed to retain a maximum of 4 players for their team and the rest of the players will participate in the IPL 2022 auction.
