Sanga anoints Chris Lynn…… and, then, Lynn anoints himself

SANGAKKARA: “Chris is a guy who on any given day can turn a match completely on its head,” . “Chris has got power; he’s got touch. But at the same time he’s got real positive intent and that’s exactly what you need in T20. He’s got a great future ahead of him and is one of the best young Australian players going around.”

This was in the morning of the 29th December. That evening, as the Heat XI chased a daunting total of 194 Chris Lynn scored 101 runs in 51 balls –a strike rate of 198.03 !!
