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.
Lynn could not play the entire season for KKR as he picked up an injury in the early stage of the tournament and had to return home. 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:

And here are the highlights of the first warm-up game.
If Lynnsanity prevails for KKR, it could spell doom for other teams.
KKR has the smallest contingent in IPL 11. They have only an 18-man squad, which makes things tricky for KKR, as they do not have a good bench strength. They also have a new captain in Dinesh Karthik, which may make things a little difficult for the eastern franchise.
