In terms of the franchise’s future, Lucknow has already recruited Andy Flower as head coach and IPL winning captain Gautam Gambhir as a mentor. Sanjeev Goenka, the chairman of the Lucknow group, highlighted the necessity of bringing in Gambhir, and the former cricketer voiced his delight.

“Gautam will primarily have a motivational role to play. He will also help to create a blueprint for the franchise in the long term. We wanted to have people with a proven track record of success.

“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,” said Gambhir earlier.
