Rahul was roped in for INR 17 crores and was named the team's skipper.

KL Rahul’s likely IPL franchise has made its debut on Twitter. The Lucknow franchise has not revealed its name for IPL 2022 but has signed Andy Flower and Gautam Gambhir as a part of the support staff. Currently named Official Lucknow IPL team, going by the handle @TeamLucknowIPL gathered over 20000 followers on the first day. “Welcome to the official Twitter profile of Lucknow IPL team.”

However, Rajasthan Royals, known for their cheeky banters with other IPL franchises, welcomed the newest baby in style. Rajasthan Royals tweeted: “Kahi yeh wrong number toh nahi? (What if it’s a wrong number)”, doubting the authenticity of the page as the Lucknow team’s IPL handle is yet to receive a verified blue tick.

Sanjiv Goenka-led RPSG group won the bid for ‘Lucknow Team’ at approximately ₹7000 crore (over 932 million USD).
