New Delhi: Two new teams are coming to the IPL from next season. Once the auction for the teams is over, we move on to the next steps. The RPSG Group, led by Sanjeev Goenka, has acquired the Lucknow franchise and the CVC Capital Ahmedabad team, a private equity firm. Goenke spent Rs 7,090 crore while CVC Ahmedabad team owned Rs 5,625 crore.

Big companies were on the scene to acquire the teams. The base price of the teams was Rs 2,000 crore. But the BCCI estimated that the two teams would get at least Rs 10,000 crore. The auction eventually fetched over Rs 12,000 crore to the BCCI. Meanwhile, Harsh Goenke has released the bids of the companies that reached the final round.
