Australian cricketer Chris Lynn has revealed the secret behind his monstrous sixes which he hits while batting on 22 yards. He is the serious hitter of the ball when it comes to the shortest format of the game and has also played for his country at the highest level. Though his international stint was cut short due to the several injuries and is now set to return to cricket after being fully fit. However, he would be itching to score loads of runs after being signed by Brisbane Heat for the ongoing season of Big Bash League (BBL).

Lynn was a huge signing in the Indian Premier League this year when he put on an exhibition of his swashbuckling batting while opening the innings for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). He played some of the memorable knocks and won the games single-handedly for his team. His exploits in the domestic cricket has earned him lucrative deals in Caribbean Premier League (CPL) as well apart from IPL. Though he would want to make it count when it comes to playing for Australia and will be desiring an international comeback soon.

Narine is the toughest bowler

In a video for ESPN Cricinfo, in which he has answered some of the curious questions from his fans on Twitter, Chris Lynn has revealed the secret for the gigantic maximums he hits while batting. “May be the bats these days and even though the bat restrictions have come, it’s all about power, velocity and speeds,” he said. The 27-year-old also revealed that Sunil Narine is the toughest bowler he has ever faced.

“Someone like Sunil Narine is very tough to hit. I can’t tell which way it’s going so I prefer playing with a straight bat or a sweep. If it’s one way hit the latter shot and if you don’t know if it’s spinning your way hit the earlier shot,” Lynn added. He also cleared that he loves the baseball swat which he hits with all the power in his arms by moving away from the line of the ball. The Queensland player concluded by cheekily saying that his team is in trouble if he is called upon to bowl.
