    Feels good to win: Lynn

    Debutant says bowlers set up the win for Deccan Chargers

    By Akshay Manwani
    Hyderabad 19 May 2012
    Chris Lynn, the 22-year-old from Australia, is a happy man today. Not only did Lynn get to make his IPL debut against the Rajasthan Royals, but his team, the Deccan Chargers, were able to pull off just their third win of IPL 2012 today. In doing so, the Chargers also managed to bring to an end to RR’s playoff aspirations as the Rahul Dravid-led franchise needed a win to stay alive in the competition.

    Lynn spoke to iplt20.com following his team’s victory.

    It must be feeling good to get a win after a long time?

    Yes. It was a long time coming. We’ve played really good cricket in the last few weeks. It’s just one or two moments in the game where we haven’t executed and that has cost us games. That sums up our season.

    Would it be fair to say that your bowlers set up the win for you today?

    Yes, they did. They bowled really well. Dale [Steyn] bowled really well up front, and then, Amit Mishra came in and took a couple of key wickets, which we really needed.

    It was your IPL debut today. How was the experience?

    I was really nervous, to tell you the truth. You try and prepare for it like you are playing every game. It was good to have a run around with the boys, but more importantly, it’s good to have a win.

    How was it facing Shaun Tait on a slower Indian track, like the wicket here, compared to Australian tracks?

    Actually, it was the first time I ever faced him. He bowls a heavy ball, but that’s cricket. You’ve got to face fast bowlers around the world otherwise you are not going to play international cricket and that’s what I am trying to do.

    How much did you learn from your interaction with the cricketers from various countries who represent the Chargers?

    I’ve been learning every day. It’s not just about cricket. It’s off the field as well – how professional they are. It’s been a great opportunity for me to learn from them, and hopefully, I can come out a better cricketer and a better person.

    You ruined RR’s chances of making it to the playoffs. You think you can do the same to the Royal Challengers Bangalore in your final game on Sunday?

    We’re just trying to play the best cricket we can. Obviously, the opportunity is going to come up next year and players are looking to perform. But in saying that, we’re going to play as a team. If we can win, we can win. It’s a game and we are just trying to enjoy it.
