Chris Lynn reaches compromise with Cricket Australia (CA), will play in 11 BBL games before heading to UAE T20 league

CA was reportedly unwilling to issue NOC to Chris Lynn as he was disinterested to play in the BBL

The Australian opener Chris Lynn, after being at loggerheads with Cricket Australia (CA) for a few weeks, has finally reached a compromise with the board and he will now play in both the Big Bash League (BBL) and the International League T20 (ILT20) in UAE.

Earlier, there were reports that Cricket Australia was unwilling to issue No Objection Certificate (NOC) to Chris Lynn to play in the UAE league despite the fact that he was neither centrally contracted to CA, nor to the associatons controlling the six domestic teams in Australia.

The reason why CA was not ready to issue NOC to Chris Lynn was because the Australian board wanted the right hander to play in the BBL, rather than the UAE league, some parts of which will be played simultaneously with the BBL.


But, the agreement that Lynn has now reached with CA is that he will be available to play in the 11 games of BBL and then he will be off to UAE to participate in ILT20 and that way, he will be partly participating in both the competitions.

Since the time the news has emerged that two leagues in UAE and South Africa will be running simulataneously with BBL, CA has sprung into action and is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that none of their star players plays in those two leagues.

David Warner and Chris Lynn are two big names whom CA has convinced to play in BBL this year

CA has already had an agreement with David Warner according to which, the left hander has been offered roughly 70,000 Australian Dollars (AUD) per game to play for Sydney Thunder in the BBL and now they have reached an agreement with Chris Lynn as well to participate in 11 games of the BBL.



A lot of overseas players have also signed up for the BBL draft this year, but most of them will only be available for the initial games of the tournament, as they have already signed contracts with either the Emirates Cricket Board for UAE T20 league or Cricket South Africa (CSA) for SA T20 league.




I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
