Chris Lynn misses out on Queensland Bulls contract

CRICKET: Big-hitting batsman Chris Lynn has not been offered a contract with the Queensland Bulls as he continues to recover from shoulder surgery.

Lynn was a surprise omission from the list of contracted players released yesterday ahead of the 2017-18 domestic season.

His absence from the list does not spell the end for the 27-year-old, however, with the Bulls saying Lynn would be "considered for selection like any other player" once he returned to full fitness, which would likely be early next year.

Lynn opted for surgery after shoulder problems persisted last season. He has played only six Sheffield Shield matches for Queensland during the past two summers and hasn't played one-day cricket for his state since 2013.

Long-time Shield stalwart Nathan Reardon was also snubbed by the Bulls, while Usman Khawaja was named skipper, replacing the retired Chris Hartley.
