XtraTime Web Desk: Chris Lynn, Australian explosive T20 batsman does not need shoulder surgery. He got injured and his right shoulder got dislocated while fielding in the final of T20 tri-series match against New Zealand but, he would be fit before the IPL.

After consulting with the doctors in Brisbane Lynn’s manager Stephen Atkinson said, "Chris got a positive result from the doctors who said he will not need surgery,"

"Chris is disappointed at missing the Pakistan Super League but he will be making every effort to play in the Indian Premier League and, if selected, the five one-dayers for Australia in England in June."

Lynn's latest setback follows a string of serious shoulder injuries.

He reportedly has some minor nerve inflammation around the joint that is under treatment, and will start rehabilitation work on the shoulder as soon as that settles down.

Although Lynn, 27, has withdrawn from the Pakistan Super League which started in the United Arab Emirates this week, he is hopeful of joining the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League in the first week in April.

If he withdraws from the IPL without travelling to India he will forfeit his $1.5 million contract, the highest deal for an Australian player for this year's glitzy tournament.

Should he join the team but be ruled out without playing a game, he will receive half of his fee. If he plays a game, he will get the full amount.

The in-demand Lynn has played 12 IPL games, including seven last season when he averaged around 50 for the Knight Riders at a sizzling strike rate of around 180.
