Some Lesser Known Facts About Chris Lynn

  • Does Chris Lynn smoke: Not Known
  • Does Chris Lynn drink alcohol: Yes
  • As a child, Lynn was so obsessed with sports that he wanted goal posts to be put up in the family backyard. Since it was an impossible wish for his parents to grant, they instead set cricket nets for the future ‘ferocious’ batsman.
  • A complete sports buff, Lynn captained the Queensland under-12 teams in cricket and rugby league, swam freestyle at the national titles, and was also a junior AFL star.
  • At the age of 19, Lynn made his domestic debut first in the shortest format of the game for Queensland against New South Wales. He then played the next biggest format (List A), before finally getting a taste of the longest format (first-class), all in a space of 2 months.
  • He is not only a hard-hitting batsman but also an agile fielder. Although Lynn has taken a number of spectacular catches in leagues across the globe, his career-defining moment came at the 2014 IPL; wherein he dismissed AB De Villiers in the last over by taking an almost impossible catch.
