That also includes not playing red-ball cricket for his domestic side Queensland. <p></p> <p></p>To not push his luck with injuries, Lynn is focusing on limited-overs cricket for now as he will fly to Dubai this Sunday to join Australia squad for a three-match T20I series against Pakistan. <p></p> <p></p>Lynn was in blazing form during the Australian Domestic One-Day Cup as he struck 452 runs at 75.33 with a hundred and three half-centuries for Queensland. But he will not be playing in the Sheffield Shield 2018-19 that starts from October 16. <p></p> <p></p> It s currently white ball only, purely just because of my body, Lynn was quoted as saying by <em>Foxsports.com.au</em> on Wednesday. If I have a big day one in a Shield game there s no way I could back up day two, three or four. <p></p> <p></p>He wants to remain fully fit and conserve himself so that he's available for selection for the ICC World Cup next year. In 12 months we ll have a look at it and see where the body s at, but for the time being there s plenty of white ball cricket in front of me, he said. <p></p> <p></p>Lynn, 28, who has played one ODI and 10 T20Is, has reiterated his vow to never dive for a ball while fielding. I told myself I ll never dive again on the cricket field; it s hard cause mentally I want to get every ball I can, he said. My last couple of shoulder reconstructions were from diving and that s just brain fades from wanting to stop the ball. <p></p> <p></p> But I ve got to realise that if I want that longevity in the game I ve got to pull my ego back a little and put more runs on the board.
