Chris Lynn posts hilarious tweet regarding Jasprit Bumrah after being purchased by Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2020 Auction at his base price of Rs 2 Crore.
The ongoing IPL 2020 Auction started with a bang when the first name to come out of the hat was none other than the explosive Chris Lynn. The Australian, who has made a reputation as a T20 specialist around the world, surprisingly failed to attract bidders as Mumbai Indians picked him unchallenged.
Lynn, who has an excellent record, both in the T20 format and in IPL itself, will certainly prove to be a valuable edition to the reigning IPL Champions. The opener, who has played for Kolkata Knight Riders since 2017, began life as a Mumbai player with a tweet that showed his appreciation for the franchise, his honesty and his humorous side.

Can’t wait for @IPL 2020
