Lynn also believes that they have a really good bunch of cricketers in the KKR squad. He is quite familiar that there are some cricketers in the KKR line-up who have been part of the IPL since its inception and are quite experienced for the skipper’s position.

In the recent interview, Lynn said, “I’d love to [lead]. I’d jump at the opportunity. We’ve got a really good group at Kolkata. The coaching staff, Simon Katich, Jacques Kallis, Heath Streak … I can relate (easily too) them. But there are a couple of boys that have been in the IPL for 10 years so you can’t ignore their experience, especially in their own backyard. I’m still learning the game over there but if given the nod then I’d jump at the chance.”
