Former Australian batsman set to become the head coach of Lucknow Super Giants

Prior to the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season, Justin Langer, a former Australian cricketer and head coach, is in line to lead the Lucknow Super Giants. The team was led by Andy Flower in IPL 2022 and 2023, however his contract with the franchise expired earlier this year. Under Flower’s cautious eye, LSG reached the playoffs both seasons but was unable to win the championship. The team lost the Eliminator on both occasions and came in third place at the league stage in both rounds.

Relating to Langer’s potential appointment as head coach of LSG, Cricbuzz said that talks between the two parties are in progress. There is a good chance that the franchise will make an official announcement shortly if the discussions go well. Additionally, the report stated that Langer and the LSG franchise have already held many rounds of negotiations.

Particularly as a T20 cricket coach, Justin Langer has a stellar track record. While serving as the club’s head coach, the Perth Scorchers won the Big Bash League (BBL) championship three times, and the Australia Men’s team won the T20 World Cup in 2021, which was played in the United Arab Emirates. There are currently no plans to alter the support staff, which consists of assistant coaches for bowling, fielding, and assistant coaching Morne Morkel, Jonty Rhodes, and Vijay Dahiya. They will probably stay in their current roles as a result. Bringing in Justin Langer would make the Lucknow Super Giants Management even more stronger. 

Along with other teams, it is also anticipated that the coaching staffs of numerous other teams who didn’t perform up to expectations would undergo changes. However, despite finishing seventh in the IPL 2023 without their normal captain Shreyas Iyer, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are planning to keep Chandrakant Pandit and the coaching staff.
