Jamaica Tallawahs' assistant coach Junior Bennett believes the acquisition of Australian batsman Christopher Lynn will bolster the side’s batting for the third edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

The 24-year-old Lynn was picked in Round Four by the Tallawahs for US$70,000 during the recent CPL player draft held at the Terra Nova Hotel in Kingston.

Lynn has played 45 Twenty20 matches and averages 28.25 with a remarkable strike rate of 139.09.

Bennett says he saw Lynn Big Bash tournament and in the Indian Premier League and he batted well.

According to Bennett, the Tallawahs made several attempts to get him last season but he was with the Australian A team.

He further says Lynn is a very aggressive player and a brilliant fielder who can help the Tallawahs’ cause in the batting department.

The 2015 CPL T20, consisting of six franchises, is scheduled to run from June 21 to July 26.
