With the IPL 2024 just days away from start, the Lucknow Super Giants have signed in former South Africa cricketer Lance Klusener as their Assistant Coach. One of the most prolific all-rounders of his time, Klusener will work under the leadership of Australia’s Justin Langer.

The IPL franchise made the announcement official late on Friday, March 1. The Lucknow-based franchise in its official statement stated, “Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) have added South African legend Lance Klusener to their formidable roster of coaches for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season.” However, they captioned the post on X (formerly Twitter), “Durban se aaya humara dost Lance Klusener joins our coaching staff for the season”.

It is to be further added that Klusener is also the head coach of the SA20 franchise Durban Super Giants and even guided them to the final, earlier this year.  Check the top betting trends on the  best betting apps in India  and sites.
