Australia’s top-order batsman Chris Lynn will play for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL starting on Saturday, depending on the form of the T10 tournament played in the UAE last year. The IPL will be held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) this time due to Kovid-19. The defending champions Mumbai Indians will face Chennai Super Kings on Saturday in the first match.
Lin has been quoted on the Twitter handle of Mumbai Indians (MI) as saying, “I have some good memories of the T20 tournament played in Abu Dhabi last year, so hopefully the performance I did was here for me. Will work and hopefully I can do something good. “

Team coach Mahela Jayawardene has said that he will not tamper with the opening pair. Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock will start the innings for Mumbai. In such a situation, Lin is finding it difficult to play in the last-11.
Lynn said, “Rohit is a world class player. He runs on the field. The contribution he has made to Mumbai, both inside and outside the field, is very special. And De Cock has been outstanding in both wicketkeeping and batting.”
He said, “So, if I could make a place and do my job, it would be a good thing for me. In the end I would be happy to bat in the top order, middle order or wherever I want.”
The right-handed batsman said, “But first it is a matter of mingling with the team, training, sweating in the heat of Abu Dhabi and then going there to run.”
