Kolkata Knight Riders have released their dashing opener, Chris Lynn. It came as a surprise not only to KKR fans but also to the cricketing minds. Maratha Arabians’ batter Yuvraj Singh did not shy away from pointing out the mistake of the franchise after Lynn smashed an unbelievable 91* off mere 30 balls in the ongoing T10 League.
Lynn’s swashbuckling stroke play amused the 2011 World Cup’s man of the tournament. Yuvi, who was known for all his marvelous stroke play is in all praise for the opener. Lynn’s breathtaking innings came against the Team Abu Dhabi. Chris Lynn’s 91 was record-breaking in every sense as he surpassed Alex Hales’ score of 87*, which was the highest score in the tournament.
“I think Chris was outstanding today. Unbelievable hits. He is someone whom I have seen in the IPL. He has given some great starts to Kolkata Knight Riders. It was great to see him bat like that today” said Yuvraj Singh as quoted by India Today. He called KKR’s decision as a ‘bad call’ and has also told about texting Shah Rukh Khan, KKR co-owner for the same.
Yuvraj Singh interested in coaching
Yuvraj missed out on the game for the Arabians due to the back spasm. He did play the first encounter but failed to make a mark. Even though he has retired from international and IPL cricket, he cleared that he is in no plans for retiring totally from the game, he believes he has got a few more years of cricket left in him. When asked about his future plans, the 37-year-old mentioned that he is well off playing different leagues and tournaments across the globe.
Yuvi’s decision to continue playing is a real feast for his fans. Moreover, he cleared his intentions for the coaching job. “I will be enjoying playing in different leagues for the next two to three years then hopefully I will get into coaching and practice that side by side,” concluded Yuvraj.
If not hit by cancer, Yuvraj would have ended his career as one of the best limited-overs players, if not the best. We would hope to see a few glimpses of vintage Yuvraj in the ongoing T10 league for our delight.
