Lucknow is also owned by the Rising Pune Super Giants owners, who previously played in the IPL in the 2015 and 2016 seasons. That is why they have given the Lucknow franchise a very similar name to the Pune franchise.

When the Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings were banned from the IPL in the 2016 and 2017 seasons due to a spot-fixing scandal, Pune (second team Gujarat Lions) was one of the teams that replaced them. Pune was led by legendary Indian batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni in 2016 and Australian superstar Steve Smith in 2017. In both of these seasons, they’ve had a significant lineup. This time around, cricket fans are thrilled about the arrival of a new team, the Lucknow Giants.
