Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Chris Lynn is expected to return to the fray next week after recovering from his injury.
Lynn dislocated his shoulder at the start of the IPL after scoring the fastest 50 in 19 balls.
“The shoulder is slowly getting there,” Lynn told cricket.com.au. “I had a cortisone injection the other day and it worked really well. I’d like to ideally play a game or two before the finals.
“It would be a bit unfair on the team-mates to rock up into a final not having played a game (since the injury).”
Lynn injured his left shoulder while landing awkwardly during a dive in the match against Mumbai. He felt the shoulder pop out of the joint for about 30 seconds, and said he popped it back in himself.
Lynn has been picked in Australia’s Champions Trophy squad subject to a fitness assessment.
