From the 15th IPL edition onwards, there will be the addition of two new teams in the tournament. That means, now there will be 10 teams instead of the usual 8.

In August 2021, BCCI confirmed the news and announced the induction of two new teams from the shortlisted cities in the upcoming IPL league.

Later on October 25, 2021, RPSG Group and CVC Capital won the bidding war for the two new teams. Sanjiv Goenka of RPSG Group won the rights to manage the Lucknow-based, LSG team against a whopping prize of Rs. 7090 crores. This amount was 250% more than the BCCI’s base price of Rs. 2000 crores.

The BRSABV Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow, will be the home ground for the Lucknow cricket team, representing Uttar Pradesh and most specifically Lucknow city.

Based on the price, Lucknow Super Giants are the most expensive team in the IPL 2022 league. They appointed former Zimbabwean cricket coach Andy Flower as their head coach and Gautam Gambhir as the mentor for the team.

Lucknow picked KL Rahul ahead of the mega auction for 17 crores. And chances are that he will be the Lucknow captain for the 15th IPL league. LSG’s first match will be held on the 28th of March at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, against Gujarat Titans.

Thanks to the likes of Gautam Gambhir for formulating a strong team for the LSG’s first entry. However, the result is yet to be declared.
