BCCI has finally approved the Ahmedabad franchise formally on Monday. Lucknow and Ahmedabad are the two new teams that will be seen together in IPL 2022. The BCCI has given both the franchises a deadline of 22 January at 5 pm to finish with three signings. Hardik Pandya is the first choice for the Ahmedabad franchise whereas KL Rahul is the first choice as a captain for the Lucknow franchise.

IPL Chairman Brijesh Patel told PTI “We have been talking to the new teams, we are planning to give them 10 days to two weeks,”

Potential picks for Ahmedabad

  • Hardik Pandya (Captain)
  • Rashid Khan
  • Krunal Pandya or Ishan Kisan

  • KL Rahul

Ahmedabad’s coaching staff

  • Ashish Nehra (Head coach)
  • Gary Kirsten (Mentor)

Lucknow coaching staff

  • Andy Flower (Head coach)
  • Vijay Dahiya ( Assistant coach)
  • Gautam Gambhir (Mentor)

Last Tuesday, BCCI had said the two franchises about a stipulated amount of 33 crores that they can spend on the three players. One of the players can be uncapped and the other one may be an international player.

BCCI had set the slabs for the three players salaries.

After consultation with the Indian Board, BCCI gave the two teams a time of 10 days. The January 22 deadline will give the BCCI some time to give a second thought about the rescheduling of the IPL Mega Auction dates which are currently on February 12 and 13.

Salary Slabs for the top three picks

  • Total Amount: Rs 33 Crore
  • Player 1: Rs 15 Crore
  • Player 2: Rs 11 Crore
  • Player 3: Rs 7 Crore
  • Fees of an uncapped player: Rs 4 crore
  • If two capped players are picked, their salaries will be 14 Crore and 11 crore respectively.
