XtraTime Web Desk: Injury of star Aussie power hitter Chris Lynn is the biggest setback for the two-time IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) ahead of the IPL as his right shoulder got dislocated while fielding in the final of T20 tri-series match against New Zealand. Now, the scan report will decide whether he can play for KKR in this edition of IPL.

Lynn is already ruled out from the Pakistan Super League which he supposed to play in United Arab Emirates.

This explosive batsman signed by KKR for $1.5 Million in this January.

"I'm disappointed to not go to the Pakistan Super League as planned, but I'll now focus on rehabilitation and working as hard as I can, with the hope to still take part in the Indian Premier League later this year," he said late Wednesday.

Reports said if Lynn, who has a history of shoulder trouble, lands in Kolkata but does not play a match he would receive half his fee. But if he is ruled out before the tournament he will not be paid anything.

"Chris dislocated his right shoulder after landing awkwardly on it when fielding the ball," Australia team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said in a statement.

"His shoulder was able to be put back into place at the ground and he was consequently sent for X-rays which revealed no major bone injury. At this stage Chris will not travel to the Pakistan Super League in Dubai."

Lynn will undergo further scans in Brisbane, which will determine his immediate playing future.
