Chris Lynn – the top scorer of Big Bash League is all set to make his way for the UAE’s International League T20 after striking a remarkable deal. Lynn will be participating in the BBL 2022-23 for 11 group matches out of 14 for Adelaide Strikers before moving to IL T20 on January 11.
Earlier, there were speculations that Lynn might not participate in Big Bash League 2022-23 due to the lucrative money offered by International League T20 franchise – Gulf Giants. It is a big deal that a compromise has been made that will allow Lynn to participate in two major Cricket leagues.
He will be granted an NOC from January 20 with his last league match for Adelaide Strikers on January 14. It means he will miss the opening matches of ILT20 which is due to start on January 6.
“Cricket Australia welcomes the Adelaide Strikers’ signing of Chris Lynn,” a CA spokesperson said. “He will be released from 20 January to participate in UAE’s ILT20 competition from that date.”
Chris Lynn is the only player in the BBL history to score more than 3,000 runs and most sixes with more than 180+.
“We all know the qualities that Chris Lynn brings to the table. He is a proven match-winner, an experienced leader and a great character to have around the group,” Strikers’ head coach Jason Gillespie said. “His record speaks for itself. We’re thrilled to have him and know he can play an important role for us this summer.”
