IPL 2018: Chris Lynn Hits Nets After Recovering From Shoulder Injury

Kolkata Knight Riders batsman, Chris Lynn, returned to training for the first time after suffering a dislocated shoulder last month.

Lynn faced fast bowlers in nets and still looked in recovery mode for IPL –

Kolkata Knight Riders purchased him for a huge amount of Rs 9.60 Crore.

Lynn looked all set to be one of the captaincy contenders as well.

However, during the final of the Trans-Tasman Trophy against New Zealand, he landed on his shoulder awkwardly while fielding.

It resulted in a dislocated shoulder, which put his participation in IPL in jeopardy.

Scans confirmed that he had dislocated his shoulder, but he would not require any surgery for it.

He went to a rehabilitation camp for a month and has returned now.

Kolkata Knight Riders officials said that they are expecting Lynn to be fit for the first game of the tournament

However, he might need some more time be match fit.

Lynn is still in Australia and hasn’t landed in the camp yet.

Kolkata Knight Riders have already kicked off their camp in the state in the absence of key players.

Lynn is expected to land in India in April, and he would have few days to spend in the camp before deciding his availability for the first game of the tournament.

Meanwhile, KKR franchise is also sweating over the fitness of  Andre Russell.

He was ruled out of PSL owing to a hamstring injury.

The owners said that he would also be fit for the first game, but there has been no update on him yet.

He was retained by the franchise ahead of the IPL auction.

In fact, KKR provided him with separate training staff during the period when he was serving one year ban.

The franchise would want both the players to get fit in time before the start of the league.

Dinesh Karthik led KKR will to face Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore in their first game of the season on April 8 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
