Lynn injured his left shoulder when diving to stop a boundary and immediately signalled for assistance and could be seen having his shoulder strapped up and treated with ice.

Lynn had earlier scored 32 in 24 balls to add to his opening game 93 not out and his KKR side ultimately lost to Mumbai by 4 wickets.

Lynn later tweeted: “Dear Cricket Gods, did I do something wrong?”

Lynn’s Big Bash League franchise, Brisbane Heat, is keeping a stringent eye on his situation in the IPL.”We’ll stay in close contact through this initial process as we get an idea of what the extent of the injury is and what the options are for him,” said Andrew McShea, Heat’s general manager according to ESPNcricinfo.

“It’s unfortunate for Chris to sustain another injury to the shoulder that has troubled him in the past. It’s not the sort of birthday you would wish for, and the best wishes of the club and our fans go out to him,” he added.
