Profile

Judging by his injury list, you could be excused for thinking Chris Lynn was a fast bowler. The 23 year old has been hamstrung by a number of ailments in his early years, which have curtailed his development at the Bulls.

His Sheffield Shield career started in emphatic style, with the top-order batsman reaching a vital 142 in trying conditions against the Warriors. To show his intent, Lynn brought up his ton with a towering six.

He finished the Shield season with 172 against the Bushrangers; a score that remains unchallenged 20 games into his first-class career.

Injuries affected Lynn in 2012/13, with the right-hander managing just four Ryobi Cup matches and no Shield action whatsoever.

His final 50 over game of the season was a mixed bag. Lynn raced to 39 off 28 deliveries against the Blues, but only after having been struck by Doug Bollinger in a very painful area.

Importantly for the Brisbane Heat, Lynn was available for their charge to the Big Bash title.

The aggressive youngster smashed 51 against the Perth Scorchers, before adding an unbeaten 51 at ANZ Stadium.

While his batting waned towards the backend of the competition, his bowling emerged as the secret weapon the Brisbane Heat desperately needed.

His two wickets against the Renegades turned the match on its head, with the part-time spinner taking the key wickets of Aaron Finch and Ben Rohrer in the semi-final.

Still only young, Lynn looks like an exciting prospect. His average is nothing to be sneezed at, while his strike rate in the shorter forms is top notch.
