Ravi Bishnoi will play for Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2022. He is their third draft pick and is set to earn INR 4 crore for his association with the new franchise. Bishnoi was earlier a part of the Punjab Kings, who bought him during the IPL 2020 auction for INR 2 crores against base price of INR 20 lakh.
The young spinner has taken 24 wickets in 23 IPL matches at an average of 24.91, and an economy of 6.95.
After his selection, Bishnoi revealed that KL Rahul played a major role in him becoming a part of the new franchise.
“It is a proud moment for me, my coaches and family members as I am among those few players who have been signed before the mega auction. I have a feeling Rahul must have recommended by name to the owners. Now my focus is on performing better for the team,” he told TOI.
