IPL 2018: Chris Lynn Displays Devastating Hitting-Form During KKR's 1st Practice Match -- WATCH

Kolkata Knight Riders have only an 18-man squad, which makes things tricky for KKR, as they do not have a good bench strength

Chris Lynn is back and Lynnsanity prevailed as expected at the Eden Gardens during the 2nd warm-up match for Kolkata Knight Riders, just ahead of IPL 11.

Earlier, there was a question mark over Lynn’s availability as he was suffering from a niggling injury. But it seems he is ready and raring to go. That literally means other teams have to be very cautious of Lynn. With the kind of player Lynn is, he can take the game away from the opposition in a matter of balls. A clean striker of the cricket ball and a spectacular fielder, he certainly looks promising for KKR ahead of the tournament.

But with his latest knock during the 2nd practice game for KKR, Lynn showed he is in ominous striking form and is likely to remain injury-free throughout the tournament. Looking confident at the crease, he hit the ball cleanly and his foot was moving well.

Here are highlights from his knock:
