Rajkot: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Captain Gautam Gambhir stated that the kind of performance that Chris Lynn showed yesterday proves that he is in brilliant form right now and can thrash any bowlers in the world right now.
Lynn went berserk against the Gujarat Lions and smashed all their bowlers all round the park taking the pressure off other batsmen in the team.
Lynn smacked 93 off just 41 balls at a strike rate of 226.82. The Australian’s innings was laced with eight sixes and six fours as KKR marauded to a 10-wicket win over the Lions in the latter’s own backyard chasing 184 for victory.
“We know what he (Chris Lynn) can do when he is on song,” Gambhir said at the post match presentation ceremony.
“We have to give him a longer run. If this is the way he bats, it takes a lot of pressure off the batting line up. Hopefully he can continue his form like this and keep smacking it.”
