Chris Lynn, an Australian cricketer, reminded the Brisbane Heat of his destructive talents after hitting 83 off 46 balls to help Northamptonshire beat Durham by 31 runs in the T20 Blast on Friday.
Lynn and the Heat split up earlier this month after the Brisbane-based Big Bash League side chose not to renew the foundation player’s contract ahead of the summer of 2022/23.
And it hasn’t taken the 32-year-old long to demonstrate the Heat what they are missing out on next season.

Lynn crossed the boundary rope eight times in his maiden home game for the Steelbacks in a 69-minute rampage, teaming with England hitter Ben Curran (71 from 43 balls) for a 149-run opening stand in Northampton.
One of the Queenslander’s sixes landed in the backyard of a house near the Wantage Road pitch, and the incident was captured on CCTV.
Durham fell well short of the goal, with West Australian Matthew Kelly taking 1/48 from three overs in the run chase. Northamptonshire posted a massive team total of 4/223 from their 20 overs.
