Lynn, who departs along with Ben Cutting for the Caribbean Premier League next week, will be named vice-captain to Khawaja for the one-day competition and said he was excited about the prospects of resuming his one-day career for Queensland.

“It’s been a few years since I have been a part of the group for the limited overs competition so I’m looking forward to getting involved and hopefully help us to play some good cricket,’’ he said.

“I’ve enjoyed training with the boys in the off-season and am keen to get into the playing side of things again, first with the Knight Riders in the CPL and then the JLT Cup,’’ he said.

Queensland will play practice matches this week on the Gold Coast at Bill Pippen Oval, with their squad complemented by the arrival of eight players from Auckland Cricket who will join in for the mixture of one-day and T20 games.
