Gautam Gambhir Names The Hardest Hitter In World Cricket

IPL 2017: Chris Lynn has impressed one and all with his hitting skills in the ongoing tenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Lynn started IPL 2017 with a bang but soon got injured and he had sit out for the major part of the season. But, fortunately for KKR and their fans, Lynn recovered much quicker than expected and he is now back to doing what he does bat i.e. smashing big hits.

“I reckon (Lynn) is the hardest hitter of the ball at the moment in international cricket. The way he backs himself is unbelievable, for someone who was out with an injury for a month to play the way he did today shows the quality he has and how much be backs his game and how mentally tough he is,” cricket.com.au quoted Lynn as saying.

Gambhir rated Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine’s partnership against RCB as one of the best he has ever seen. Lynn and Narine’s partnership helped KKR win the match by six wickets in a rain-interrupted match at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday.

“That was the best partnership I’ve seen in my entire career.You don’t expect people to get 105 in six overs. It was team management, we thought there’s no point making him bat at eight or nine because he was hardly getting any balls to face,” Gambhir said.

“We thought if someone could go hard from the other end it could just give Lynny some time because he was coming back after a month. But the way Lynny batted today was unbelievable, from both ends it was the best hitting I’ve seen,” he concluded.
