For Lucknow Super Giants, they have a major update. Gautam Gambhir will remain as mentor ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Earlier reports indicated that Gambhir had excused himself from the post of LSG mentor due to the General elections in 2024. Gambhir was with the LSG side for two seasons as a mentor. The LSG side had two playoff finishes in 2022 and 2024.

Despite being a new franchise, it was a great start for LSG. Ahead of the IPL 2024 season, they have replaced Justin Langer with Andy Flower as Head Coach of the franchise. Gambhir and Langer have worked together before when the former Indian opener had flown down to Australia to get some coaching tips which helped Gambhir make some changes in his technique that has helped him to score runs.

He has been involved with selecting teams for a long period of time and he could be called in to bring some more youngsters to the LSG side.
