Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the most successful captain of the IPL but the 2016 season proved to be very bad for Dhoni as the Pune Supergiant could not even qualify for the playoffs. Pune’s team could win only 5 matches out of 14 and after that Mahi, who was commanding this team in the next season, was removed from the captaincy. In the next season, Steve Smith was given the command. The team performed well and reached the final, but in the final, Mumbai Indians broke the hopes of Pune’s victory.
RPSG has once again made a comeback in the IPL and RPSG has made the biggest bid in IPL history and bought the Lucknow franchise for a record price of Rs 7,090 crore. To make Lucknow strong, the team will spend a lot of money in the auction.

Sanjeev Goenka said a big thing after buying the franchise of Lucknow. He said, ‘First of all, I am happy to be back in the IPL, but this is only the first step. Now it is up to us to make a good team and we have to try to perform well. Looking at preparing the coach, the team, the real work will start now.
