KKR star Chris Lynn in doubt for rest of IPL 2017
Kolkata Knight Riders' star batsman Chris Lynn's IPL future in under cloud after the Australian suffered a shoulder injury during their match against Mumbai Indians on Sunday.
The Australian hard hitter suffered an injury on his left shoulder while fielding for Kolkata in the match 7.
He dived to take an outfield catch of Mumbai's Jose Buttler, but in the process hurt his shoulder.
He was immediately seen asking for help from the support staff clutching his shoulder in pain and was forced to march out of the field.
After the match, Lynn tweeted from his official account, "Dear Cricket Gods, did I do something wrong?"
This is the second time in the last two years that the cricketer suffered an injury on the same left shoulder. Lynn became an instant sensation among the KKR fans after his power packed performance against Gujarat Lions in their opening IPL 2017 match.
He is currently the highest run-scorer in the tournament with 125 runs in 2 matches.
Along with Gautam Gambhir, the batsman took Kolkata to an emphatic 10 wickets win against the Lions.
He remained unbeaten at 93 of just 68 balls. While, the Kolkata team management are yet to give a confirmation on Chris Lynn's future and his present condition, his tweet is sure to stir up some major speculations.
If the batsman is ruled for the rest of the tournament, it will be a huge blow for the Kolkata outfit.
