IPL 2022: KL Rahul explains why he left Punjab Kings for a new franchise

KL Rahul has been signed by the Lucknow franchise ahead of the IPL 2022 Mega Auction for a fee of INR 17 crores (approximately).

Former Punjab Kings skipper KL Rahul has opened up about the difficulties that would come with joining a new club, and has stated that this was one of the reasons for his decision to join Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). This was particularly true for the 29-year-old batsman, who had been in sensational form during the last two seasons of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Lucknow franchise was acquired ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction for INR 17 crore after he expressed his dissatisfaction with being retained.

In the previous season, the right-hander batted in 626 runs and finished third in the race for the most runs scored in the major leagues. Despite Rahul’s outstanding performance with the bat over the last three years, Punjab were unable to make it to the playoffs this season. However, while many thought that it was one of the factors that led to Rahul’s decision to leave the franchise, he was the one who came up with the genuine reasons for joining a new team.

I’d always wanted to be a part of something like the following: KL Rahul

Rahul expressed his joy with the experience he has gained so far in the LSG unit, and he mentioned his participation in various talks that took place within the group as they were putting together the new squad. He went on to say that the IPL 2022 super auction days and retention times were unfamiliar territory for him, as he was required to consider from the standpoint of a team.

“You know what I mean, whatever little time I’ve had with the Lucknow Super Giants has obviously been a very new experience for me because I’ve never sat in meetings where we’re discussing each and every player about how we want to set up the franchise and what we need to, you know, what our core needs to be, you know, there’s so much happening including the auction, before the auction, the retention part, you know there’s so much that’s happened and all of that was very.

Rahul, on the other hand, revealed that the prospect of starting from fresh with a new squad had piqued his interest, which had prompted him to leave his previous franchise. He went on to say that he wanted to be a part of something like this to help him develop in stature and that he was looking forward to the difficulties.

I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to be a part of a new team, of a new franchise, and to help build it from the ground up, and that’s what really excited me and that’s why I made the decision to join a new team, because being a part of something like this and learning along the way is something that will be beneficial to me in my journey and will help me grow as a person and as a cricketer.” ‘So to sum it up: it’s fantastic, and I’m looking forward to what the future holds for all of us,’ he continued.
