Chris Lynn has been appointed as captain of the Brisbane Heat for the upcoming season of the Australian Big Bash League (BBL).
The 28-year-old Lynn has led the Heat previously, in the 201-2016 season, when the team finished bottom of the BBL table.
The Australia international takes over the leadership reins from Brendon McCullum.
Lynn said: “I really enjoyed the experience I had as Heat captain previously and likewise with Queensland.
“Leadership is something I have enjoyed since I was a young bloke starting out and I’m confident I am ready to handle it in the BBL.
“We have got a settled squad with talent to burn and I can’t wait to get into the season and have a go.”
Lynn is the top run-scorer for the Heat with a total of 1560 runs and the only man with more than 100 sixes in the BBL.
He also has extensive experience of playing in T20 leagues around the world.
Heat coach Daniel Vettori said: “The timeline is pretty much as we mapped out when we all came together a few years back to do some planning around succession and future recruiting.”
The BBL kicks off on 19 December.
