Sanjeev Goenka, the owner of the Lucknow franchise, is inspired by Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League. He wants to follow their template in the tournament. The Lucknow based team would compete in IPL 2022 after coming on board along with Ahmedabad franchise. They have already signed Andy Flower and Gautam Gambhir as team’s head coach and mentor for IPL 2022.

Lucknow is likely to appoint KL Rahul as their captain, with Rashid Khan and Ishan Kishan also on the radar.

Speaking to Times of India, Sanjeev talked about the five-time Champions. “Biggest inspiration for me is Mumbai Indians, what they have achieved. How they have gone through it, it’s a template not only for IPL teams but Also for Sports teams across the world,” he said.
