Lucknow has identified 3 players to be brought onto the team ahead of the auction; Team selection that will surprise cricket lovers

Lucknow will make his debut in the Indian Premier League this year. The Lucknow based franchise was acquired by the RPSG Group which has bid heavily to acquire new IPL teams. They previously announced Andy Flower as their coach and Gautam Gambhir as their mentor. You also have a chance to win 3 players ahead of next month’s IPL Star Auction. It has been reported that the players will be in the roster ahead of the Lucknow auction, which is now in its first season.

Former Punjab Kings captain and Indian superstar KL Rahul has been named the first player in the Lucknow franchise. Rahul, who has played for Punjab in the IPL since 2018, has excelled personally every season but the team’s performance has been pathetic. It is believed that this time he decided to leave the team. Rahul, who left Punjab at a time when he was expected to become one of the auction’s most sought-after players, has now been secured for Lucknow. Rahul will lead Lucknow in the first season. The franchise is expected to make an official announcement soon.

This time around, the Lucknow franchise had reportedly tried to recruit Afghan weirdo Rashid Khan from Sunrisers Hyderabad, but there were indications they were unable to reach an agreement with the player. In this situation, plans are being made to bring Australian all-rounder Marcus Stones into the team. But despite the fact that there are many better foreign players out there than the Stones, the Lucknow franchise’s selection of him for the team comes as a surprise to fans. Senior journalist K Srinivasa Rao has revealed that he plans to bring Stones to the Lucknow team.

There is evidence that Ravi Bishnoi, a young Indian spinner who played for the Punjab Kings last season, will also join the Lucknow squad. Bishnoi is a bowler who has excelled in recent seasons. But the fact that they are willing to bring Bishno into the team rather than follow in the footsteps of Yusvendra Chahal and Rahul Chahar has surprised some. However, as an uncapped player, Bishnoi might be tempted to make the move for a small fee.
