Arshad Khan’s cameo earns him ‘good package’ tag from LSG coach Justin Langer

Lucknow Super Giants coach Justin Langer is mighty impressed with Arshad Khan after his cameo against LSG. The tailender stayed unbeaten on 58 runs off 33 deliveries as he made a valiant attempt to get his team across the line against DC. His efforts went in vain as Rishabh Pant and co. picked up a 19-run victory, knocking LSG out of IPL 2024.

‘Arshad Khan a good package’

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Justin Langer labeled Arshad as a good package. He also pointed out that the youngster could go on to become a very handy bowling all-rounder in the future.

I think Arshad Khan is a very good cricketer. You saw that he swung the ball early. He is a good fieldsman and to be able to bat like that, he is a very good package. I’ve thought, watching him through the tournament, that he has potential and he showed some of it tonight,” Langer said.
