IPL 2023: First Players Conflicts, Now Two IPL Franchise Management Came Face To Face, Check The Allegation Made By KKR Management On LSG Team

After the injury of LSG regular skipper KL Rahul, the Lucknow Supergiants, playing under the captaincy of Krunal Pandya. And under Pandya, LSG has booked the ticket for the IPL-2023 playoffs.

The team won 8 out of 14 matches in the league stage and qualified for the playoffs with 17 points. Now they will face Mumbai Indians in the Eliminator match on 24 May. Meanwhile, the 2-time champion team Kolkata Night Riders have issued a statement against the Lucknow Super Giants team.

On Monday, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) denied allegations that it barred fans wearing Mohun Bagan jerseys from entering the Eden Gardens during their IPL match against Lucknow Supergiants. KKR termed such claims as ‘misleading.’ Not only this, KKR accused Lucknow Super Giants of counter-marketing. Counter marketing means making a profit by associating yourself with a particular event without paying sponsorship fees.

The RP Sanjiv Goenka Group owns the Lucknow Super Giants and Mohun Bagan, the over-a-century-old football club. A section of Mohun Bagan fans alleged they were not allowed to enter the Eden Gardens because they had the Mohun Bagan logo on their T-shirts and scarves. The KKR management denied the claims and accused the Goenka group of ‘counter-market marketing.’

According to a statement by KKR, “There is some misleading news that the KKR management had prevented some fans from entering the Eden Gardens during the KKR vs. LSG IPL match on 20 May. We would like to say that KKR management has nothing to do with the management of visitors coming to the stadium. We were informed of some counter-marketing attempts, and the Anti-Counterfeit Marketing team promptly stopped that as per IPL league policy.
