Lucknow Super Giants is one of the IPL’s two new teams in 2022. This team is based in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.
While IPL asked to bid for two new teams, the IPL 2022 team Lucknow was won by RPSG Group. The team is founded in October 2021 with the home ground of BRSABV Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
The team announced KL Rahul, an Indian national team player as their captain. Aside from this, they also announced Andy Flower, the Zimbabwean cricket legend as the team’s head coach.
We predict IPL is going to see the appearance of a strong team in its 15th league season.
History Of Lucknow Super Giants
The owner of Lucknow IPL team is RPSG Group. It is a 6-billion dollar company based in Kolkata. The Rising Pune Supergiant was formerly owned by the RPSG Group during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
By the way, when the Indian Premier League’s governing body issued an invitation to tender for two additional franchises, 22 corporations expressed a strong interest in participating.
Nevertheless, as a result of the increased base price, there were only six enterprises remaining in the end. The BCCI’s governing board, on the other hand, requested that the corporations bid as a consortium of three teams or as individuals.
At the conclusion of the day, Sanjiv Goenka, the owner of the RPSG Group, was awarded the bid for the IPL 2022 Lucknow team. They were the ones who placed the winning offer of 7,090 crores of Indian Rupees.
After winning the bid, the owner of the Lucknow IPL team announced a competition for determining the name of their team. At last, they picked Lucknow Super Giants in January 2022.
