In the world of cricket, one of the biggest questions in everyone’s mind on social media is – What will be the name of Team Lucknow in IPL? Well, the RP Sanjiv Goenka group owned franchise have started an online contest called “Naam Banao Naam Kamao” where the fans have been given an opportunity to come up with a name for the side which will make its debut in 2022 edition of the tournament.

The netizens have constantly be involved in suggesting various names like Lucknow Nawabs, Lucknow Rangers, Lucknow Panthers, Lucknow Supergiant etc. and it has been the talk of town on internet. After the franchise dropped a hint, everyone thought that the contest was over and the name had been finalized.

However, team mentor Gautam Gambhir confirmed on Wednesday that they were still looking for new suggestions. The 40-year-old shared a video on social media where he asked everyone for their final thoughts before they actually reveal the name.

“Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost…. 👀Participate now: www.officiallucknowiplteam.com,” Gambhir added in the caption of the post.

Munaf Patel comes up with an epic reply

While the fans came up with more unique ideas in the comment section, it was Gambhir’s former teammate Munaf Patel who came up with the best reply. While trolling the mentor of Team Lucknow, Munaf hilariously stated, “Tu apne mann ki hee karega bhai 😂😂😂” suggesting that no matter what names or ideas everyone gives, Gambhir will eventually go ahead with his own call.

Munaf Patel, who was also part of India’s 2011 World Cup-winning squad alongside Gautam Gambhir, would know his former teammate very well having spent so many years together in the dressing room.

His experience of spending so much time with Gambhir in the dressing room would have prompted him to come up with such a reply. He would indeed know that a former Indian batsman is someone who prefers to take decisions on his own.

The likes and replies on Munaf’s comment signified that the fans really enjoyed the comradery between the duo. But amid all the fun on social media, the wait for Lucknow’s team name announcement still continues!
