The Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) is to hit the floors soon and a million speculations are made. Where Mumbai Indians (MI) are all set to grab their fifth title of the league, Sanjay Manjrekar and Ashish Nehra believe that Chris Lynn might not get a game with Rohit Sharma’s franchise this year.
Considering Lynn’s performance in the recent version of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), his form has been found unimpressive by the Indian cricket managing bodies. They believe that adding him in the squad might be trouble for the franchise as he did not even play well on the spin. Being not able to tackle, Lynn also might not be getting a place in MI as De Kock and Ishan Kishan in the squad.
Notably, Lynn performed impressively in the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2020) for Lahore Qalandars. He can be considered as one of the reasons why Lahore Qalandars ended on the third spot.
Chris Lynn might not get a game with Mumbai Indians this year
“First thing is that just because his CPL has not gone well, it is not necessary that his IPL will also not be good. But had the CPL been good, his confidence would have been high, and he would have got more opportunities,” Nehra told Star Sports.
“We have seen in the IPL as well that when it comes to spin bowling, he has difficulties. Although he tried in the match against TKR by playing a lot of deliveries, still could not score a lot of runs.”
“I feel Chris Lynn may not get a game for the Mumbai Indians because they have Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan in the team.”
