Lucknow Super Giants announced the appointment of former Australian cricketer Adam Voges as a consultant for the upcoming IPL 2024 season. Voges is set to join LSG's much-changed staff under head coach Justin Langer ahead of the team's third season in Indian Premier League.

Voges, 44, played 31 ODIs and seven T20I matches for Australia but made a memorable impact in Tests. He famously made his Test debut at 35 in 2015 and scored 1485 runs in just 20 matches at an amazing batting average of 61.87, the second-best after Don Bradman among players with 20 or more Tests. 

“Voges is a brilliant addition to the Lucknow Super Giants support staff," LSG head coach Justin Langer said in a statement. "He and I have a long association together through Western Australia cricket and Perth Scorchers. He himself is a very successful head coach.

“When I was the coach there, he was the captain. He took over from me and has done a phenomenal job in West Australian cricket. So, to have him involved with LSG is a great bonus for all of us. He is an outstanding person and an excellent coach. He will bring in so much. We are very thrilled to have him involved.” 

The right-handed batter also enjoyed success in coaching where he guided Perth Scorchers to two Big Bash League titles. Voges also led Western-guided to multiple Marsh One-Day Cup and Sheffield Shield titles as a head coach.
