I’m Very Excited To Join Lucknow And The RPSG Group: KL Rahul

While speaking to Times of India, KL Rahul said that he is excited to join Lucknow Super Giants. He also said that the RPSG group will like to continue from their earlier success in Indian Premier League. RPSG group earlier owned the Rising Pune Supergiants team from IPL 2016 to 2017. In IPL 2017 season, the team also finished as runners-up after losing the final to Mumbai Indians.

“It’s very exciting. I think very few from my time will get this opportunity. The team is from scratch but the RPSG Group has had a couple of years in the IPL and they have experienced a bit of success. Hopefully we can all continue from there and build a franchise which will compete well and contribute some really good cricketers for our country. I’m very excited to join Lucknow and the RPSG Group. We had some chats and I was very happy. I didn’t have any second thoughts. Sir (franchise owner Sanjiv Goenka) and I really hit it off”, KL Rahul told TOI.
