Bishnoi was one of the most sought-after uncapped players ahead of this year’s IPL auction. With several franchises indicating great interest in him after his performance in the 2020 Under-19 World Cup in South Africa, where he finished as the leading wicket-taker. Punjab was one of them, having won a bidding war for him alongside Mumbai Indians in the 2020 auction for INR 2 crore.

Talking about Lucknow, KL Rahul will don the captaincy hat. Andy Flower already named the coach of the Lucknow franchise. While former India batter Gautam Gambhir will serve as the mentor of the franchise.
