Adani Group has bought a franchise in Legends League Cricket and named them Gujarat Giants ahead of the upcoming season. It was Adani Group’s second investment in franchise cricket in recent times as they earlier acquired a team in the UAE T20 League. Earlier, they attempted to get a team in IPL in October 2021, however, they failed as the Ahmedabad-based franchise was bought by CVC Capitals, while Sanjiv Goenka’s group owned Lucknow Super Giants.
Pranav Adani, Director of Adani Enterprises said, “For those of us who have lived through different eras of cricket, nothing stirs our passions like watching our favourites back in action. These are giants of the game and there is no doubt that the spiritual home of Legends League Cricket is in India, in our fantastic cricket stadiums in front of our fantastic crowds. and we call our team of Legends as Gujarat Giants."
