We released Lynn to bid for you: KKR CEO jokes with Yuvraj
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) released Australia’s big-hitter Chris Lynn before the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) made a shocking move as they released one of the cleanest hitters in the world at the moment Chris Lynn.
And, the Australian seemed to make them feel more regret as he played a stunning knock of 91* off 30 deliveries in the ongoing T10 League in Abu Dubai where he’s contracted to Maratha Arabians. It’s the highest individual score in the league’s history.
Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh also plays for Maratha Arabians and he was stunned with Lynn’s knock. He also said that it was a bad call from KKR to release Lynn and joked that he would send the owner of KKR, Shahrukh Khan a message about it.
“He is someone I have seen in the IPL. He has given some great starts to KKR. I really don’t understand why they have not retained him. I think it is a bad call, must send SRK a message on that. Chris was just outstanding today.” he said.
In reply to the statement, KKR Managing Director and Chief Operating Officer (CEO) Venky Mysore jokingly said they released Lynn to bid for him.
