In the drafts for the fifth season of the highly celebrated Pakistan Super League (PSL), Lahore Qalandars opted for the Australian belligerent batsman Chris Lynn. He joined the Pakistani duo of Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez to complete the platinum rooster of Lahore.
The 29-year old was earlier picked by Lahore in the third edition of the PSL, but a shoulder injury ruled him out of the T20 competition. However, Qalandars are hopeful to see Lynn turning their fortunes around as they have been the worst-performing franchise of the four-year history of the tournament.
Having an experience of 162 T20 games, the Queensland born has scored over 4400 T20 run at a healthy batting average of 32.53. His strike-rate being 141.96 speaks highly of the style he adopts.
Moreover, Lynn was recently found in monstrous form as he mustered 371 runs in 8 matches of the T10 League, securing an average in excess of 50 while recording 4 half-centuries. It remains to be seen how he fares in PSL 2020.
