Lynnsanity!

Post by ZIMDOGGY » Fri Jan 13, 2017 2:58 am

Has anyone not in Oz been following the BBL atm, namely Chris Lynn.

In my whole life I do not think have seen a cleaner hitter of the ball than Chris Lynn, what he has done consistently over a couple pf seasons is amazing.
Hitting 150km/hr balls into the stands he is unstoppable.

Befoere he was drafted to the aussie one day team last week, he had MORE than DOUBLE the amount of sixes hit than the next person, I think it was 26 sixes in 4 games.

I didnt think Id see a more natural hitter than Gayle, but the clinical precision of Chris Lynn is something I have never seen before.

Here is a small youtube clip of him pumping Ben Hilfenhaus for 5 sixes in a row. Its like he is playing golf.

He has done this very very consistently, and its worth pointing out he is doing it on big grounds and not Indian postage stamps.

Yeah he can hit the ball a long way, I doubt he will become a decent odi player probably just a t20 specialist....

The way he deposits balls way back into the stands even from the bottom of the bat is impressive.
