Chris Lynn –
With 405 runs at a strike-rate of 139.65, Lynn was Kolkata Knight Riders’ second-highest run-scorer in the tournament. On one end where KKR were thinking whether to promote Shubman Gill as an opener, Lynn contiued to do his job and justified his presence in the playing XI. The right-handed batsman, though, has been released.
His price (9.6 Crore) seems to be the only reason behind KKR letting him go and the franchise might be hoping that they will get his services at a lower price in the next season.
