The former BCCI Chairman of the Selection Committee will be instrumental in providing essential guidance across a spectrum of critical domains, the franchise said in a statement.
MSK Prasad will aid the franchise as their Head of Talent Search and talent development.
It is worth highlighting that Prasad’s appointment comes after the new franchise announced the appointment of former Australian opener Justin Langer as their head coach. Langer replaced Andy Flower at the helm of the coaching staff who has gone on to join Faf du Plessis-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) ahead of IPL 2024. Notably, LSG did manage to secure a place for themselves in the Playoffs last season but were completely outplayed in the Eliminator against Mumbai Indians (MI).
“Prasad brings with him a wealth of experience and a stellar track record in cricket operations, coupled with a passion that has driven him to remarkable achievements in both national and international arenas. His journey is marked by a range of accomplishments that spans from representing the Indian National Cricket Team to steering the operations of prominent cricket associations; all of which will bring valuable insights and experience to our organization,” LSG said in their official statement.
