Chris Lynn, now former Kolkata Knight Riders player has decided to give up other cricket formats to focus only on T20 format in the future. Lynn is someone who can easily score 20 to 24 runs per over and this aggressive batting of his helps him in scoring runs.
Lynn, who had a brilliant stint with the Queensland team last year, ended up as the leading run-scorer of the Australia’s domestic One-Day tournament. However, he didn’t receive a contract to play in Australia’s domestic season.
“I really enjoy playing in the shorter format and there is a lot of opportunities around the world to play in different leagues such as T10 League and IPL,” Lynn told cricket.com.au.
Lynn will now be looking to kick-off his Big Bash League season with some good knock as the Australian will lead Brisbane Heat team. He would really love to continue his form, especially after being named player of the tournament in the recently concluded T10 League in Abu Dhabi as he scored 371 runs with the strike of 236.
His eyes will also be on the upcoming T20 World Cup in 2020, which is to be played in Australia. Lynn will surely want to have a good BBL and IPL in 2020 to get some attention of the selectors.
Before all of these, Lynn’s eyes will also be set on the IPL Auction that will take place on 19th December in Kolkata. He is expected to be one of the favourite openers in the auction for the franchises after KKR earlier released him.
