It has been reported that Hardik Pandya, Shubhman Gill, and Rashid Khan have been picked by the CVC Capital-owned Ahmedabad franchise before the start of the IPL 2022 mega auction. The franchise has also released information regarding its coaching and support staff. Head Coach responsibilities will be shared by Gary Kirsten and Ashish Nehra, and the team director’s position will be held by Vikram Solanki. The last time these three cricketing legends partnered was when they were working for RCB. Rashid Khan was released by Sunrisers Hyderabad and this raised many eyebrows as he is one of the most talented players that play in the IPL.
But it turned into a golden opportunity for Rashid as he was set free to explore better chances with a different franchise. The Lucknow team is not much behind as they have roped in KL Rahul as a captain and the other two players who will most likely be taken in are Marcus Stoinis and Ravi Bishnoi. KL Rahul played for PBKS for 2 seasons and, despite giving his best for the team, the franchise wasn’t able to make a mark in the table rankings.
