The man from Queensland took the IPL by storm in only the 3rd game of the tournament as he belted the Gujarat Lions bowlers all around the Saurashtra Cricket Stadium. The spectators were treated to some scintillating display of strokeplay by the swashbuckling batsman as Knight Riders chased down the stiff target of 184 with more than 5 overs to spare.

He also shared an unbroken 184 runs partnership with captain Gautam Gambhir as Kolkata won with all 10 wickets in hand. Lynn went berserk from the outset and kept smashing the listless GL bowlers to different parts of the ground. His innings of 93 contained 6 fours and 8 sixes and it was carnage on display for the Rajkot crowd. This innings set the tone for KKR for the remaining games.
