After some scintillating performances in the Big Bash, Chris Lynn must have been eagerly waiting for this year’s IPL season to begin. And the burly Aussie did not disappoint as he lit up KKR’s opening match with a terrific unbeaten 93 against the Gujarat Lions. But after picking up an injury in the match against the Mumbai Indians, Is Chris Lynn’s IPL season all over already ?
The KKR staff are quite concerned about his health and are pessimistic about Lynn’s chances at playing in the rest of the matches.
“We are awaiting the results of the scans to Chris Lynn’s shoulder which he dislocated on the field,” Kallis was quoted as saying in his column for the Times of India. “It is a notoriously difficult area of the body to heal, so these are nervous times. He will undoubtedly need a substantial period of rest, and may even miss the rest of the tournament, which would be desperately disappointing for him and our fans after seeing what he is capable of doing during the first two games.”
Lynn plays for the Brisbane Heats in the Big Bash and their manager is also quite concerned about Lynn’s shoulder injury.

“We’ll stay in close contact through this initial process as we get an idea of what the extent of the injury is and what the options are for him,” Heat manager. It’s unfortunate for Chris to sustain another injury to the shoulder that has troubled him in the past. It’s not the sort of birthday you would wish for, and the best wishes of the club and our fans go out to him.”
While KKR fans may not want to hear this, but it looks quite likely that Chris Lynn’s IPL season is over all ready!
