Limited edition: Lynn dropped from Bulls contract list
Chris Lynn has been dropped from the Bulls contract list but is still set to be a major player for Queensland cricket next summer.
Master blaster Lynn was a late addition to last season's Bulls contract list and could have had a contract next summer had he wanted one.
But by not being contracted he can free himself up to play in Twenty20 competitions around the world and can also have extra flexibility in his training commitments.
Lynn was the leading runs-scorer in the JLT Cup in 2018-19, hitting 452 runs at 75.33 for the Bulls, including two centuries and it is his intention to play in that competition again as well as for the Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash.
His red ball career for Queensland appears to be over but Queensland coach Wade Seccombe is hopeful Lynn, back from the Indian Premier League and spotted on Wednesday at Queensland Cricket headquarters, can continue to star in the shorter formats.
"Chris is very much in our thinking for our one-day set-up in light of his performances last summer and we will work closely with him in the lead-up to the season once again,'' Seccombe said.
Lynn is likely to captain the Heat side to be coached by Darren Lehmann with whom he has a strong relationship.
Fast bowler Alister McDermott has ended a three-year absence to return to the Bulls contract list announced today.
The 27-year-old paceman, son of Test quick Craig, is the only newcomer to earn a full contact while Australian Under-19 batsman Corey Hunter and Brisbane Heat rookie left-arm paceman Matthew Willans are new faces in the Rookie contracted list.
Power hitter Max Bryant and left-arm spinner Matthew Kuhnemann were promoted from rookie deals to full contracts..
Three players from last year's list were not contracted with paceman Luke Feldman retiring Peter George and Sam Truloff omitted.
