Team history

2022 IPL Season: debut season of the team

At the mega auction which was held in February 2022, the team brought many players in which the all-rounders were more in numbers. The franchise brought various big international players such as Quinton de Kock, Mark Wood, Krunal Pandya, Marcus Stoinis. Later the franchise named KL Rahul as the captain of the team and the old Zimbabwean cricketer Andy Flower as the head coach for the upcoming season. Franchise also appointed Gautam Gambhir as the mentor of the team. In the initial phase of the season all-rounder Marcus Stoinis was not available due to ongoing Australian series in another country. Before the start of the season, it was confirmed that the English pace bowler Mark Wood will not be able to join the team because of injury so, the franchise drafted Australian bowler Andrew Tye in the place of Mark to fill the requirement of pace bowler in the team in the first season.

In its first season of IPL, LSG finished third in the table which meant they qualified for the playoffs. They faced fourth place Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator Match and were knocked out by them at that stage.
