An unbeaten 93 in KKR’s season-opener and then a 32 against Mumbai Indians and Aussie batsman Chris Lynn is the IPL’s current top-scorer.
But the 125 he’s smashed so far may be all Lynn is allowed to score this season.
No KKR haven’t found a new opener, but they could be forced to do so if Lynn’s shoulder injury proves too serious. The batsman hurt his shoulder while diving in the field against Mumbai Indians and underwent an MRI on Monday. The extend of his injury will now be known in a day of two.
KKR source to PTILynn has undergone an MRI scan on his left-shoulder. Reports are awaited. We will get to know in a day or two.
Dear Cricket Gods, did I do something wrong?— Chris Lynn (@lynny50) April 9, 2017
This is the third time in less than two years that Lynn has taken a blow to his left shoulder and clutched the joint in obvious pain after attempting to claim an outfield catch to dismiss Jos Buttler.
Following the match, Lynn tweeted: "Dear Cricket Gods, did I do something wrong?"
This fuelled speculations that he may be out of action for the entire duration of the IPL.
