Cricket World Player of the Week - Chris Lynn

 

For his knock of 113* off just 55 deliveries, that helped Lahore Qalandars seal a semi-final berth in the Pakistan Super League for the first time, Chris Lynn is the Cricket World Player of the Week.

Chris Lynn's unbeaten knock of 113 off 55 balls was probably the best display of batting in this season of the Pakistan Super League and took his franchise Lahore Qalandars to their first semi-final in the history of the PSL, courtesy of a win by nine wickets against Multan Sultans.

Lynn was at the centre of it as he bludgeoned eight sixes and a dozen boundaries against a second-string Multan bowling attack. He joined hands with Fakhar Zaman to get Lahore Qalandars off to an absolutely rollicking start. The two added a staggering 72 runs in the first six overs.

Lahore required just 10 runs in the final two overs and Lynn completed the formality in style by smashing two maximums off two consecutive balls to take Lahore to the semi-finals. The 29-year-old amassed a total of 284 runs in the eight matches he played in the season.

The opening batsman though has decided to cut short his stint in the tournament to return home due to the novel coronavirus pandemic outspread.
