Chris Lynn

Many believe that If not for reoccuring shoulder injuries, Australia's Chris Lynn could have been one of the best T20 batsmen in the world at the moment. His canny ability to hit long sixes, straight out of the park, makes him a dangerous customer for any bowler. On his days, Lynn can be a destructive force to reckon with - as he showed for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2017 when he smashed 93 runs after coming down to open

the innings. In IPL, he has a strike rate of 158.02 in 12 matches. He started his career in domestic T20 debut, after which he moved to List A cricket, at the age of 19. Apart from his tremendous work in IPL, his consistent performance in Big Bash League for Brisbane Heat has made him a regular for Australia in T20Is. In 2016/17 season, he held the average of 154.5 and a strike rate of 177.59.
