Bio

Playing in just his second Sheffield Shield match in 2010, a 19-year-old Chris Lynn gave an insight into his impressive ability by hitting 139 out of Queensland’s total of 285, becoming the fourth youngest player behind Andrew Symonds, Jimmy Maher and Martin Love to score a century for the Bulls.

Despite the bright start, Lynn’s career has been crippled by a series of long-term injuries, meaning early talk of Test cricket has stalled.

He finally made his international debut in 2014 on the back of good Twenty20 form for Brisbane Heat, including their successful campaign in 2012-13.

He has also earned several contracts in the Indian Premier League, with his time in the IPL highlighted by an incredible catch on the boundary in 2014.

Lynn has developed into one of the most devastating six-hitters in the KFC Big Bash League.

He was named Player of the Tournament in BBL|05, hammering 378 runs from 218 balls at a strike rate of 173.4.

Lynn smashed 27 sixes along the way, the highlight of his tournament a blistering 101 from 51 balls against Hobart Hurricanes.

He also attracted plaudits after slamming five consecutive sixes during one over from former Test paceman Ben Hilfenhaus in his side's clash with the Melbourne Stars at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. 

 

Lynn’s reputation in the short-form has secured him positions in Indian Premier League and Caribbean Premier League teams.
