IPL 2022: KL Rahul set to Leave Punjab Kings and likely to join New Team Lucknow | IPL 2022: Rahul promises to leave Punjab, Lucknow hints at new platform not RCB

by time news

There were reports that Rahul Virat Kohli, who is leaving Punjab, will join the vacant RCB captaincy. But according to the latest reports, Rahul will be the captain of the new Lucknow team. The owners of Rising Pune Super Giants, who played in the IPL for the 2016-2017 season, are now fielding the Lucknow team. Rahul is being considered for the captaincy of this team.

It is learned that the Lucknow team intends to sign Rahul for the next three years. The Rising Pune Super Giants were led by MS Dhoni in one season and Steev Smith in another. So despite the rumors that Steve Smith will be the captain of the Lucknow team, the latest reports suggest that Rahul will also be playing with the Lucknow team.

Though Rahul did not excel as the captain of Punjab, he did a great job in batting. Rahul has scored over 550 runs in every season he has played since 2018. New teams can retain up to three players before the auction. That is why they can easily bring Rahul to the team.

Rahul will get a huge reward if he goes to auction. Rahul, who is playing consistently, was more likely to get at least Rs 20 crore in the auction as he was in high demand. But the Lucknow team is sure to pay at least Rs 18 crore when they buy him. The Lucknow team acquired the new team for a record amount of Rs 7090 crore. So I am sure they will not hesitate to spend a huge amount for Rahul.

If Rahul is brought in, the team will be strong in batting. Rahul, who has been in the Orange Cap list for the last four seasons, is a player who has been able to maintain his best streak from the start. If Rahul is acquired, the team can use him as a wicket-keeper. Rahul is also the T20 vice-captain of the Indian cricket team. So acquiring Rahul will also enhance the value of the team.

But it remains to be seen how much benefit Rahul will get if he is given the captaincy. Building a new team will not be easy. It needs an experienced hero. If Rahul, who did not excel as a captain, is selected as the Lucknow captain, it is likely to have a negative effect. Rahul is one of the heroes who succumbs to pressure.
