Australia top-order batsman Chris Lynn, who plays for Lahore Qalandars in the PSL, on Monday left for hometown midway into the tournament due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lynn, who was acquired by the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL auction last year, is the newest player to enter the list of international players who left the continuing PSL amid rising concerns over the spread of the coronavirus.
Lynn said through Instagram, “Thoroughly enjoyed my time at the @thepsl unfortunately in these circumstances I’ve chosen to head home, I’ve always said there is more to life than cricket and this is certainly one of these cases,”.
He further said, “I have full faith in the @lahoreqalandars to go all the way but more importantly have fun lads! Thank you to everyone involved, Pakistan you have been a blast,”.
On Sunday, Lynn scored a winning century from 52-balls to lead Lahore Qalandars to their first semifinal appearance.
The Australian power hitter will be spending 14 days in self-isolation when he arrives in Australia as per the government’s directives.
