Bengaluru will host the big auction on February 12 and 13. Lucknow, on the other hand, has officially announced the name of the squad barely weeks before the much-anticipated event. The team owner, as well as the Chairman of RPSG Group, took to Twitter to announce the new name of the franchise: “Lucknow Super Giants.”

Lucknow, which is owned by the RPSG group, took the first step and named their squad Lucknow Super Giants on Monday. The suffix was also used by RPSG’s former Pune franchise during their two-year tenure, and it will be carried over to Lucknow with Kl Rahul as captain.
