KL Rahul is likely to lead the Lucknow franchise, according to reports. Apart from him, the new IPL team will sign Rashid Khan and Ishan Kishan before the mega auction.
This has been revealed by G. S. Vivek, one of India’s renowned sports journalists. Rahul and Rashid, who Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad did not retain, respectively, were on the radar of the Lucknow-based team.
Ishan Kishan, who played for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2021, is the third and final player on the list of the team.
“KL Rahul (captain)-Rashid Khan-Ishan Kishan likely for Lucknow franchise,” he wrote.
