TIL Desk Sports/ Following Yuvraj Singh”s criticism of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for releasing Australian batsman Chris Lynn for next year”s edition of the Indian Premier League, franchise CEO Venky Mysore has come out with a cheeky response to the former Indian all-rounder.
Mysore said on Tuesday that KKR released Lynn so that they can bid for Yuvraj in the IPL 2020 auctions. “Yuvraj Singh, we released Chris Lynn so that we could bid for you! Love and respect for both of you champions,” the KKR CEO tweeted.
On Monday, Lynn smashed 91 off 30 balls playing for the Maratha Arabians in the Abu Dhabi T10 league, shattering the record for the highest individual score in T10 cricket previously held by England”s Alex Hales (87 off 32 balls). Following this, Yuvraj said KKR”s decision to release Lynn was a “bad call” and joked that he might drop the franchise”s co-owner Shah Rukh Khan a message on that.
