Former Indian cricketer, Yuvraj Singh was also left surprised by the news of KKR to let such a good striker of the ball go. Yuvraj even went ahead and took his side by raising questions on KKR’s move. He even claimed he would ask Shah Rukh Khan, the team owner to look into it. He said:
“He is someone I have seen in the IPL. He has given some great start to KKR. I really don’t understand why they have not retained him.”
“I think it is a bad call, must send SRK a message on that. Chris was just outstanding today,”
On November 15, Kolkata Knight Riders released a total of 13 players including Lynn. However, Chris Lynn is hopeful of securing a new contract at the auction in December.
