Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), a prominent team in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has bid farewell to assistant coach Vijay Dahiya. Dahiya, a former cricketer, took to social media to express his gratitude for his enriching two-year journey with the team. In response, LSG extended their appreciation to Dahiya with a heartfelt thank-you note for his dedicated service.
In a poignant Instagram post, Dahiya shared his sentiments, saying, “Time to bid adieu… LSG. Lucknow Super Giants, it was a wonderful experience working with the team over the past two years. Wishing team LSG all the very best @lucknowsupergiants #lucknowsupergiants.”
This announcement comes amid a larger restructuring of LSG’s coaching staff ahead of the upcoming season. The franchise recently appointed Justin Langer as their head coach, following the departure of Andy Flower. Additionally, former LSG player Gautam Gambhir has left the team to rejoin the Kolkata Knight Riders as a mentor. Gambhir boasts a successful track record, having led KKR to two IPL titles during his playing career.
Langer brings a wealth of experience to LSG, having previously coached the Australian cricket team to significant victories, including a 4–0 triumph over England in the Ashes series and Australia’s first-ever T20 World Cup win in 2021. His coaching prowess was also evident during his tenure with the Perth Scorchers, where he guided the team to three Big Bash titles. In another significant development, Sridharan Sriram, Langer’s former Australian cricket spin coach consultant, has joined LSG as the assistant coach for the upcoming season.
The full squad for Lucknow Super Giants for the upcoming season is as follows:

As the IPL 2024 season approaches, Lucknow Super Giants have finalized their squad with the addition of 25 players during the auction. The squad features notable names such as captain KL Rahul, wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock, and a mix of experienced and emerging talents to strengthen their lineup.
