T20 star Chris Lynn says he found out about his omission from the Australian team via social media, slamming Cricket Australia for poor communication.

Lynn was left out of the Australian squad for this summer, which was viewed as a pointer to in-contention players for the ICC T20 World Cup in Melbourne next year. The squad will play three matches against Sri Lanka and then Pakistan in the next fortnight.

Lynn - a T20 staple for Australia recently, though missing from its latest matches in India - was miffed not to get a phone call. He also took issue with chief selector Trevor Hohns claiming that he had not played enough cricket in Australia recently; feeling that the reasoning was inconsistent when applied to other players.

Pitch concerns moves Shield match from SCG

  Pitch concerns moves Shield match from SCG The Sheffield Shield match between NSW and Tasmania has been moved from the SCG to Drummoyne after concerns over the pitch square.The Blues were meant to host Tasmania at the cricket ground in a match beginning Friday, but that will now likely be moved to Drummoyne Oval in Sydney's inner west.

Australian batsman D'Arcy Short revealed that he was not surprised to be left out of the ODI squad for the three-match series against India later this month and Short went on to produce a player-of-the-match performance in the Big Bash League ( BBL ) just hours after the squad announcement, hitting a

In his first game for Australia since the Ashes, David Warner sent a reminder of his class with his first-ever T 20 International century, hammering Sri

"The thing I was disappointed about was the lack of communication. Not even a phone call. I found out on social media," Lynn told The Sydney Morning Herald.

"That's the world we live in these days. But it is what it is. I kind of felt it was coming.

"Put the head down, score some runs and you pick yourself. I'm not losing sleep over it, put it that way. It makes me hungrier and more competitive.

"I haven't spoken to him (Hohns). I find it's something that's ongoing and getting worse in Australian cricket - that lack of communication.

"I'm not just talking about my case. There are plenty of other scenarios where players feel a bit lost on where they stand. It's disappointing."

The Daily Telegraph reported that Lynn may be on the outer with selectors, due to a feeling that he "prioritised his $1.86 million contract with IPL heavyweights the Kolkata Knight Riders over pushing for selection for Australia" in the 50-over World Cup.

Triple threat: The 15 batsmen with international hundreds in all three formats

  Triple threat: The 15 batsmen with international hundreds in all three formats We love it when features can be recycled.Hot on the heels of Kevin O’Brien becoming the 14th man, and Ireland’s first, to score centuries in all three international formats after making 124 in a T20I against Hong Kong comes David Warner’s somewhat belated entry into the club.

Bhogle later took to Twitter to clarify the incident. The ace commentator clarified an awkward incident that took place during the presentation ceremony after the game between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday.

Ellyse Perry takes four wickets and top-scores with the bat as Australia beat India by four wickets after the tourists lost 5-4 in the space of just 10 balls.

Lynn feels that Hohns' rationale for dropping him was a "cop out". He pointed out recent comments from all-rounder Chris Green, who said he'd been advised that playing multiple T20 tournaments worldwide was a legitimate pathway to representing Australia in the format.

"There were mixed messages about playing around the world and then an article comes out with Greeny saying there's an opportunity through the pathway that he's choosing, which is similar to my (pathway)," Lynn told the Telegraph.

"I just hope there's not rules for one bloke and another set of rules for the next."

Despite dominating the Big Bash League, Lynn has not grabbed his chances while playing for Australia at international level.

His record is 18 matches for 291 runs at 19.40, with a highest score of 44. Last summer, he played four T20 internationals (against South Africa and India) for scores of 14, 37, 13 and 13. He has also struggled to be an effective fielder due to a chronic shoulder problem.

Australian T20 squad: Aaron Finch (c), Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell, Ben McDermott, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Billy Stanlake, Mitchell Starc, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, David Warner, Adam Zampa.
