After KKR released him, Chris Lynn was always going to be a big fish for franchise owners at IPL 2020 auction because the dashing Australian has the ability to destroy any bowling attack and finish matches single-handedly on his day.

But, interestingly, Chris Lynn was picked by Mumbai Indians just for his base price of INR 2 crore. Mumbai Indians have always been a team of superstars and Lynn’s addition to their squad is only going to add more firepower and big-hitting to their star-studded batting order. The pitches at Wankhede Stadium always favor batsmen, especially in the IPL, and Lynn’s presence at the top of the order will be a big advantage for the Paltan.

Player number 002, pick number 001 – Chris Lynn can send them to the railway tracks outside Wankhede.”
