Queensland batsman Chris Lynn is expected to hit the nets for the first time later today (May 2), since dislocating a shoulder diving in the field during the IPL against the Mumbai Indians on April 9.
Lynn said “The shoulder is slowly getting there. I had a cortisone injection the other day and it worked really well,”.”I gave it a bit of a wriggle and it went back in,” he said, far too nonchalant for the sort of pain he endured. “Because I’ve had it a few times now I sort of knew what timeframe I was looking at to get back if there wasn’t too much damage after a scan.”.
“It only makes sense I’m here trying to get fit to play some cricket before heading over to England. There would be nothing worse than going in underprepared to a world tournament. “I’m going to have my first bat and I’m feeling really confident it about it. The shoulder has come up really well. It’s positive signs but I’ve still got a long way to go. “I’d like to ideally play a game or two before the finals. It would be a bit unfair on the teammates to rock up into a final not having played a game (since the injury).”
Lynn added he’s hopeful of returning well before the playoffs and is targeting the match against Kings XI Punjab on May 9 for his comeback.
