Lynn's 30-ball innings at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Monday included nine fours and seven sixes as Maratha Arabians scored 138 from their 10 overs.
They won the game against Team Abu Dhabi by 24 runs.
"Obviously when you get a bit closer you want to get [to a hundred]," 29-year-old Lynn said.
"But the guy at the other end was hitting boundaries as well.
"So to get 138 on that wicket was a really good job."
Englishman Alex Hales previously held the record for the highest individual score in T10, recording an unbeaten 87 from 32 balls last year.
While Lynn said one great knock doesn’t define the summer, fans were nonetheless impressed with Lynn’s batting.
Chris Lynn in Abu Dhabi overnight: 91* from 30 balls. Hit boundaries from more than half the balls he faced (9x4s, 7x6s). Warming up nicely for @HeatBBL— Adam Burnett (@AdamBurnett09) November 18, 2019
Did KKR make a mistake releasing Chris Lynn? First game since the announcement, Lynn smashes 91 in 30 balls at the Abu Dhabi T10 League. KKR lucky that other teams aren't chasing an overseas opener. Can still buy him back at a lower price.— Sreshth Shah (@sreshthx) November 18, 2019
