In a recent discussion, Gambhir said – “I think it’s a great opportunity to create a legacy and create something which has never been created before. We don’t want to copy anyone; we need to have our own template, we need to have our own legacy as well. And what better than when you have no baggage,”

He also added – “Sanjiv (Goenka) sir, when he had Pune (franchise), they missed winning the title by one run. So it’s going to be a great challenge if we can finish that unfinished business as well but then we can’t promise that it’s going to happen in one year. It’s a long-term prospect as well. It’s not going to be something like we are going to think only for this year,”

Lucknow Super Giants have got KL Rahul for Rs 17 crore, Marcus Stoinis for 9.2 crores, and Ravi Bishnoi for Rs 4 crore for the upcoming IPL 2022.

Gambhir also revealed the reason behind buying Bishnoi –  “Ravi Bishnoi, from that point of view, made a lot of sense as well. He is young, he is a wicket-taking option and he is got to be your sure-shot guy playing in the playing XI; he can bowl at different stages of the game. More importantly, he is an uncapped player as well. So from every sense, it made a lot of logic for us to actually get him on board so that we can develop him going forward,”

He has also added – “If he keeps his head on his shoulder, he will get better from here on. Going forward, if you see most of the leg spinners, this is probably the youngest of the lot and probably the most talented of the lot as well.  So from that point of view, we have a present and a long-term strategy as well. So hopefully it will be a good journey going forward,”
