Chris Lynn withdrawn himself from PSL, after his shoulder popped out while he was fielding in Australia´s 19-run victory over New Zealand in the tournament final in Auckland on Wednesday.
Australia T20 batsman receives good news from shoulder specialists. Chris Lynn will not need surgery following the latest shoulder injury the big-hitting batsman suffered in Australia’s T20 tri-series final in New Zealand.
That’s the verdict from Lynn’s manager, Stephen Atkinson, who said the batsman had received positive news from doctors after seeing specialists in Brisbane today.
“Chris got a positive result from the doctors who said he will not need surgery,” Atkinson said, according to a News Corp report.
But still Lynn had subsequently withdrawn himself from the Pakistan Super League.

“Chris is disappointed at missing the Pakistan Super League but he will be making every effort to play in the Indian Premier League and, if selected, the five one-dayers for Australia in England in June.”
It is understood the news has been warmly received in the Lynn camp with the prognosis as good as the batsman could have hoped for. And although Lynn is understood to have some minor nerve inflammation around the joint, that is being treated as normal for this type of injury.
Lahore Qalandars management who decided against opting for an immediate replacement of Australian batsman Chris Lynn, with hopes he may get fit in time to play the last leg of Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches, now have to change their decision.
