2013-14 was a massive season for young batsman Chris Lynn. Not only did the right-hander top the runs scorers list for the Brisbane Heat, but he was then rewarded with a debut international call up in Australia's T20I series win over England, scoring a brisk 33 not out in his only innings.
The master-blaster was also part of the Kolkata Knight Riders squad that took out the Indian Premier League alongside the likes of South African legend and new Sydney Thunder recruit Jacques Kallis.
Lynn was a key member of the Heat side that won the BBL|02 title, and also featured in the My Foot Dr Queensland Bulls team that took out the Sheffield Shield in 2011-12.
Brisbane born and bred, he has two younger brothers and an older sister.
As a youngster, he was up for all sports, playing AFL, rugby league and rugby union, while his promise in cricket saw his Dad Col, a former Australian water polo representative, turn backyard blitzer to build a net in the yard at the family home.
On a day off from cricket he likes to jump in the car and drive to the Gold Coast for a surf or head out on onto Moreton Bay for a jet ski. He is a prolific twitterer under @lynny50.
Generates incredible bat speed, which means that when he connects, the ball can go a long, long way. Excellent outfielder and tidy left-arm spin too!
