Chris Lynn is undoubtedly one of the best T20 batsmen in Australian cricket, perhaps in world cricket. His ability to pull of something mind boggling under crunch situations makes people speak about him with an awe.
Lynn represents Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League season 6 and he has been in stellar form. Brisbane Heat today had to chase a more than competitive 174 runs against Hobart Hurricanes and Lynn and Brendon McCullum made an absolute mockery of the big total.
Their superb batting display ensured Heat won the match with a whopping 22 balls to spare, which explains how destructive they were. McCullum and Lynn added 109 off 53 balls and after McCullum’s dismissal, Lynn took the onus on himself and finished the game in style.
There were some incredible moments in the game as McCullum and Lynn were battling it out against each other on who could score more quickly. In the process, the Hobart Hurricanes bowlers and fielders turned mere spectators and could do nothing but enjoy the stroke play.
Yet, the moment of the match came in the 7th over, when Shaun Tait had the ball in hand. Tait bowled a juice good length delivery just about on the off stump at well over 140 km/h. Lynn picked up the length quickly and clobbered the ball out of the Gabba, leaving everyone in the stadium shell shocked.
Quite certainly, Lynn enjoyed that shot and he stared at Shaun Tait with a weird smirk on his face. Shaun Tait too could do nothing but laugh at his luck.
You can't be serious! This is a video game!
