Lynn is a right-handed middle order batsman who plays for the Queensland Bulls in the Australian domestic cricket competitions. He was born in Brisbane, Queensland, and attended St Joseph's Nudgee College and the Queensland Academy of Sport.

He was bought by the Sunrisers Hyderabad for the 2013 competition but did not get the chance to play in a single match. For the 2014, season he was signed by the Kolkata Knight Riders and in his first game he was the man of the match, scoring 45 off 31 balls and taking a catch to dismiss AB de Villiers and turn the game in the final over. In IPL 2015, he was retained by the Kolkata Knight Riders but he got injured and was ruled out of the tournament. Johan Botha came in as a replacement.[citation needed]
