Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have recently released Australian aggressive opening batsman Chris Lynn. The 29-year-old cricketer has no hard feeling after finishing their six years partnership.

Chris Lynn made his debut in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2012 where he played for now-defunct Deccan Chargers. However, he played only one game in that season. Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) bought him in IPL 2013 but the Australian opener was never selected in the playing XI.

Later, in 2014, KKR signed Chris Lynn and started the story of this great journey. Lynn missed most of the matches in the first three seasons, mainly due to his injuries. From 2014 to 2016, Lynn played only four matches, including missing out the entire IPL 2015.

From 2017, Chris Lynn started to play for KKR regularly. The right-handed batsman was the second most run-scorer for KKR in the last two IPL seasons. Chris Lynn played 40 IPL matches for KKR and scored 1,274 runs with an average of 34.43.

Ahead of the 2020 IPL auction, KKR released 11 players from the last season’s squad. Consistent performer Chris Lynn was one of those players who have been released by KKR. However, Lynn has no hard feeling with the team as he has a good relationship with the entire team members.

Lynn recently said, “I have got a really good relationship with the KKR owners, support staff, head coach. There are no hard feeling there at all. More important is keeping those relationships nice and strong,”

Chris Lynn has agreed with the priority of the new head coach Brendon McCullum.

Lynn added, “There are players twice as good as me that have been released from franchises so KKR want to win the tournament and that’s the priority for (head coach) Brendon McCullum.”

As KKR released him, Chris Lynn will be now available in the upcoming players’ auction. Kolkata will host the 2020 IPL auction on 19th December 2019. While he is currently busy in T10 League, he feels that his few more runs will give the positive signal to the IPL teams.

He claimed, “The auctions coming up, so if I happen to score a few more runs and be fresh in the mind of some coaches, that’s a positive.”

On last Monday (18th November), Chris Lynn created a record in T10 League history by scoring the highest individual score in this tournament history. Playing for Maratha Arabians, Lynn scored 91 runs off 30 balls (9 fours and 7 sixes) against Team Abu Dhabi and broke the previous record of 87* by Alex Hales.
