"Thoroughly enjoyed my time at the @thepsl unfortunately in these circumstances I've chosen to head home, I've always said there is more to life than cricket and this is certainly one of these cases. I have full faith in the @lahoreqalandars to go all the way but more importantly have fun lads! Thank you to everyone involved, Pakistan you have been a blast," Lynn wrote on his Instagram post.

He paved the way for Lahore's maiden semifinal entry but unfortunately, he will not play the knockout clash against Karachi Kings on March 17 in Lahore.

In eight PSL matches, he amassed 284 runs with an average of 35.50 including one century and a fifty.

In the other semifinal of the PSL, Multan Sultans will face former champions Peshawar Zalmi in Lahore on March 17.
