Abiding by the reports, Kolkata Knight Riders’ Australian import Chris Lynn, after going under the knife and scalpel to sort out a rotator cuff injury to his left shoulder on Tuesday, will fumble the opportunity to play in the Champions League T20 tournament scheduled to get off the ground this early September.
The 24-year-old Australian all-rounder, who was the centre of media hype and made the headlines when he took a sensational catch to dismiss AB de Villiers in this year’s IPL, is not expected to be in action till December. Disclosing about his injury on the back and his surgery, Lynn said that he could possibly be back in action for the upcoming Big Bash League which is to mark its onset on December 18.
There is never a good time to be injured but if everything works out according to plan, Lynn said, the aim is to be ready by the time of the launch of Big Bash League. The surgeon was real happy with the way things went in accord and the Queensland medical staff was also seemingly pleased and content about the surgery as it all seems to have gone as per the plan.
Lynn is assumable of being pretty sore at the moment, and having spoken to a few people who have been down the same road, he is harnessing enough information and knowing that there is plenty of hard work ahead. But he seems to be confident more or less as he will be up to bouncing back to full fitness and that too with greater throttle by playing some good cricket for Queensland and the Heat in the second half of the season.
The big hitter’s last match was against Australia’s National Performance Squad in the ongoing A Team Quadrangular ODI tournament, where he played up to his mark.
For the trivial sense, Kolkata Knight Riders will face Chennai Super Kings in the opening match of the grand event on the 17th of September. So, for all those who are expecting to miss out to perceive another spectacular catch like this year’s IPL, can surely come up with renewed hopes and rejuvenated aspirations that this Australian import will soon make out to thrive well in their hearts and win over them for sure.
