Batsman Chris Lynn, who was named in Australia's Champions Trophy squad earlier this year, has not been offered a Queensland contract for the 2017-18 season.

Lynn is currently recovering from shoulder surgery and is not expected to be available to play until early next year, and Queensland said in a statement that he would be considered for selection when fully fit. However, in the meantime there is no contract for Lynn, who opted for an operation on his shoulder this year in an effort to prolong his career.

Persistent shoulder problems have seriously curtailed Lynn's output in the past few summers, and this will be the fourth successive season in which he will miss the start of the season - including the entire domestic one-day tournament - due to a shoulder injury.

Batsman Nathan Reardon also missed out on a Queensland contract for 2017-18, while the retired wicketkeeper Chris Hartley is also gone from last year's list.

Batsman Sam Truloff, wicketkeeper Lachlan Pfeffer, and fast bowler Brendan Doggett have all been added to the contract list.

Queensland squad James Bazley, Joe Burns, Ben Cutting, Brendan Doggett, Luke Feldman, Jason Floros, Peter Forrest, Cameron Gannon, Peter George, Sam Heazlett, Charlie Hemphrey, Usman Khawaja (Cricket Australia contract), Marnus Labuschagne, Michael Neser, James Peirson, Lachlan Pfeffer, Matt Renshaw (CA), Billy Stanlake (CA), Mark Steketee, Mitchell Swepson, Sam Truloff, Jack Wildermuth.
