Australia explosive middle order Chris Lynn is sidelined against Sri Lanka in the three match T20 international series due to neck injury. Cricket Australia ratified on Thursday ( February 9 ). Ben Dunk will alternate the bombastic batsman.
The Brisbane Heat batsman was also unavailable in the five match ODI series against Pakistan with same neck injury and complicated it during the practice session last week.
"Chris resumed some light training as part of his rehabilitation but was still unable to function at the level he needs to play international cricket due to his exciting neck injury," Kevin Simis, the physiotherapist said. "Chris will be seeing a specialist later this week and from there we will have a better understanding of the ongoing management, along with the return to their frame."
