“Thanks a lot to Dr Goenka and the RPSG Group for presenting me this wonderful opportunity in their setup.

“The fire to win a contest still burns bright inside me, the desire to leave a winner’s legacy still kicks me 24×7. I will not be contesting for a dressing room but for the spirit and soul of Uttar Pradesh,” Gambhir said in a statement.

The owner of the yet-to-be-named franchise, Sanjiv Goenka welcomed Gambhir into the RPSG family.

“Gautam has an impeccable career record. I respect his cricketing mind and look forward to working with him,” he said.
