After facing misery for the last 4 seasons, Lahore was expected to produce a better show in the 2020 season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Their start was horrible as they lost the positions of strength to lose the first 3 games. However, they turned tables miraculously well and became the third team to qualify for semis of the 20-over tournament.
Coming into their last group game against Multan Sultans, things looked smooth for them before Khushdil Shah unleashed his best to propel his team to 186 runs. However, it was the belligerent batsman Chris Lynn who turned it all around for Lahore by saving his best knock for a special day.
Smashing unbeaten 113 runs off 55 balls, the 29-year old took Lahore over the line. Earlier, he was supported by Fakhar Zaman’s fireworks who mustered a 35-ball 57 in a difficult run chase on a slow track.
Reviewing all this, social media was set on fire as people were thrilled to see Lahore qualifying for the biggest T20 carnival of Pakistan. Twitter was filled with congratulatory messages and fans lauded the grand comeback of Lahore in PSL 2020 after losing their first 3 games. Moreover, Chris Lynn caught a special mention as his awe-inspiring knock garnered a lot of admiration.
