Thanks a lot to Dr Goenka and the RPSG Group for presenting me this wonderful opportunity in their setup. The fire to win a contest still burns bright inside me, the desire to leave a winner’s legacy still kicks me 24×7. I will not be contesting for a dressing room but for the spirit and soul of Uttar Pradesh,” Gambhir said about his appointment.

Aside from Lucknow, Ahmedabad is the other franchise added to the IPL. The auctions for the same will begin very soon and the two new franchises will have the option to sign three players from the existing pool before they are put into the auction.
