“Won’t change the way I bat”, says Lynn
The maverick Australian batsman, Chris Lynn has vowed to keep playing aggressive cricket after recovering from his ‘reconstructive shoulder’ surgery.
“It has been frustrating but it was the right decision to get it done,” Lynn said. “I want to play through tournaments and hopefully make a mark and be fully fit for 12 months. I want to put the shoulder injury to bed. I want to go back to enjoying my cricket and being pain-free. I have to change my dynamic slightly but I won’t be changing the way I bat.”
Lynn has been suffering from shoulder trouble for the last three years. The problem increased when he injured his left shoulder badly while playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) in the Indian Premier League(IPL) .
The 27-year old has had a reconstructive surgery on his left shoulder that will keep him out of the game for the next few months. But he is hopeful that the surgery will help him to have a longer career.
He said,“Longevity was why I took that option to have the operation. It’s a short-term loss for a long-term gain. They (career ending) are words you don’t want to hear but they are down that path. I’ve got to be more cautious and have more smarts about how I go about things. I am zero or 100 but there are times I have to reel it back and get another 10 years out of my career. We’ll see how smart I am in the next 12 months.”
Lynn is now going through a rehabilitation process. He is sure to miss the 1st part of the upcoming Big Bash League(BBL). But he is hopeful of making a comeback in the 2nd half of the tournament.
