New Delhi: Kolkata Knight Riders star, Chris Lynn, who presently is the Orang cap holder in Indian Premier League Season 10, injured his left shoulder while diving in the field against Mumbai Indians on Monday.
The hard-hitter underwent an MRI scan, the reports of which will be known in a day or two, the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise later confirmed.
"Lynn has undergone an MRI scan on his left-shoulder. Reports are awaited. We will get to know in a day or two," a source from the franchise said.
While Lynn is reported to be missing almost the whole of IPL season, the whole extent of his injury will only be available after the reports of MRI scan are available.
While it is already known that he will be missing out on most of the remainder of the season, fans might not be able to see the Aussie back at his absolute best.
Here's one of his best hits ever – a gigantic 121m six to Shaun Tait:-

The Australian suffered the injury during Sunday`s match against the Rohit Sharma-captained side, which KKR lost by four wickets at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
In what is the third injury to the same shoulder in less than two years, Lynn clutched the joint in obvious pain after attempting to claim an outfield catch to dismiss Jos Buttler.
He was attended to by Knight Riders` physio Andrew Leipus and was later seen with an ice pack strapped to his shoulder.
Following the match, Lynn tweeted: "Dear Cricket Gods, did I do something wrong?"
This fuelled speculations that he may be out of action for the entire duration of the IPL.
Lynn, who blasted an unbeaten 93 in KKR`s victorious opening match against Gujarat Lions, followed with a rapid 32 when the Gautam Gambhir-led side batted first against Mumbai.
