The CVC Capital-owned Ahmedabad team has pipped Lucknow to send a contract to Afghanistan star spinner Rashid Khan for IPL 2022. The two new teams wanted Rashid on board, but the latest development took place after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday (January 10) agreed to issue the Letter of Intent (LoI) to Ahmedabad.
Apart from him, Hardik Pandya is expected to lead the Ahmedabad team. They are also trying to sign the 23-year-old Ishan Kishan. CVC group has already signed Ashish Nehra, Gary Kirsten, and Vikram Solanki as head coach, mentor, and director of cricket cum batting coach. However, an official confirmation is still awaited.
