After one miserable version of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), the Indian cricketing related bodies are unimpressed by Chris Lynn’s performance. He has been unstable in CPL 2020 – consequently, creating troubles for him to get featured in any match for Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020).
The ex-player for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) got auctioned for Rohit Sharma’s MI for the thirteenth season of the cash-rich T20 league. He was expected to generate runs for the franchise. His performance in the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2020) was admirable that left Lahore Qalandars on the third spot. Despite this, the Indian management keen to have an eye on his recent deliverance, CPL, and most likely will be deselecting him.
The player failed to judge the ball on the spin strikes – also, the team having Ishan Kishan and Quinton De Kock might trouble his place in the team. Ashish Nehra and Sanjay Manjekar have presented their views and speculations on him.
Chris Lynn might not get a game with Mumbai Indians: IPL 2020
“First thing is that just because his CPL has not gone well, it is not necessary that his IPL will also not be good. But had the CPL been good, his confidence would have been high, and he would have got more opportunities,” Nehra told Star Sports.
“We have seen in the IPL as well that when it comes to spin bowling, he has difficulties. Although he tried in the match against TKR by playing a lot of deliveries, still could not score a lot of runs.”
“I feel Chris Lynn may not get a game for the Mumbai Indians because they have Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan in the team.”
