Chris Lynn is back for another season with the Adelaide Strikers after a successful first season with the club.

Lynn made 416 runs in 11 matches in BBL|12, including three half-centuries and a high score of 87. He was also part of the Strikers’ highest successful run chase of 230 against the Hobart Hurricanes.

Lynn has since competed in T20 competitions around the world, winning titles with the Gulf Giants in the UAE ILT20 and Montreal Tigers in GT20 Canada.

The top-order batter is looking forward to getting back to Adelaide and helping the Strikers make the finals in BBL|13.

“I loved my first season at the Strikers, it’s a great group of lads and coaches and we had some amazing moments together last season,” Lynn said.

“I really enjoyed being one of the more experienced guys in the squad and providing insights to the younger blokes and supporting them.”

Adelaide Strikers Head Coach Jason Gillespie said Lynn is a key member of the Strikers squad.

“Chris had a big impact on the group last season and we are looking forward to welcoming him back for BBL|13,” Gillespie said.

“Obviously he had a great influence on field with the amount of runs he made, but he made an even bigger contribution off it with the help he provided his younger teammates.

“We are excited to get ‘Lynny’ back to Adelaide and can’t wait to see what he can do again.”

Lynn joins fellow Team of the Tournament member Matt Short in re-signing with the Strikers, while D’Arcy Short and James Bazley will be new additions to the batting line up.
