Chris Lynn splits from Big Bash League club Brisbane Heat
Sydney, May 11 (H.S.). Big Bash League club Brisbane Heat have parted ways with Australian batsman Chris Lynn after the club’s dismal performance last season.
Lynn, who is also the BBL’s leading run-scorer, has been dropped from the club after the 11th season.
Queensland Cricket and Brisbane Heat CEO Terry Swenson said: “Chris Lynn and his performances have left an indelible mark on the club, and over a decade his efforts have had a rightly positive impact on cricket.”
He added, “We must gratefully acknowledge his impact on a generation of children who have been thrilled by his batting exploits.”
“While The Heat wish him the very best for the future, we thank him wholeheartedly for his commitment to the sport in Queensland,” he added.
Lynn is the only player in BBL history to have scored more than 3,000 runs in 105 matches he played for the Heat, but managed only 215 runs in 12 matches last season.
