Gulf Giants, the team owned by Adani Sportsline in UAE's International League T20 (ILT20), confirmed on Wednesday that they have signed up Australian batter Chris Lynn in their list of 14 overseas players for the inaugural season in January 2023.

Former Zimbabwe captain and World Cup-winning coach Andy Flower has been appointed head coach of the Giants. The team has also signed up Shimron Hetmyer, Chris Jordan, David Wiese, Ollie Pope, Qais Ahmed.
Giants are the third team in the ILT20 to name their roster of overseas players after MI Emirates and Abu Dhabi Knight Riders.
