Lucknow Super Giants: In the year 2022, BCCI introduced a plan for making space for two more teams in the Indian Premier League and gave it a green signal. Two teams were immediately introduced to the tournament and both teams finished their IPL 2022 season by being in the top four in the IPL point table.
Lucknow Super Giants was one of them led by KL Rahul. However, the team witnessed a disappointing defeat in the knockout stage and was unable to make it to the final stage. This year the team has done some major changes in the squad overall and KL Rahul will be eying to lead the team towards redemption.

It is a big question is around the IPL circuit can Lucknow Super Giants repeat their last year’s performance and make it to the top four?
In order to achieve that level of supremacy, Lucknow actively participated in the recently held IPL Auction and bought Nicholas Pooran, Romario Shepherd, and Daniel Sams from the draft. They also bought some domestic performers who can be potential performers for the injured or non-performing players.
It is not a complete renovation but the franchise will be looking forward to seeing how these new faces perform in the upcoming tournament.
