Twenty20 specialist, Chris Lynn has no shortage of domestic T20 franchises trying to acquire is services. However, Lynn currently playing for Australia in Tri-Nation T20 series against New Zealand and England, has made it clear that his priority is playing for the national side.

Speaking to the press after guiding Australia to a seven wicket win over New Zealand, Lynn said: “My number one priority, and always will be my number one priority, is playing for Australia. It might just be in the shorter formats at this stage. Those T20 leagues are great and I’ll always put my hands up for them, but if they clash with Australian duties, I’m always going to play for Australia.”

With the 50-over World Cup coming up in 2019, Lynn said he wants to be part of the team.

He said: It’s great fun, the change room is amazing, I’ve learnt from the best players and get to be a part of the Australian system. As a kid growing up, you want to be part of the Australian change room, I’ve said that will always be my No.1 priority. There’s World Cups around the corner, I want to be a strong part of them and basically it started tonight.

Australia second game against England will be on Wednesday at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart.
