Lyon reveals the best cricketer he has ever played with
Australia off-spinner Nathan Lyon is on cloud nine after winning the Ashes against England. However, after winning the 4th Test, Nathan Lyon wants to win even the final one which is to be played at The Oval.
Aussies have already won the Ashes but a win in the last match ensures them some points, which will play an important role in ICC World Test Championship.
“As a kid growing up, and as soon as I got my Baggy Green, the biggest goal in my career has been to win the Ashes away. We’re 2-1 up and I want to go 3-1 up, and when we hold the urn up at The Oval, it’s going to be an amazing feeling,” ICC quoted Nathan Lyon as saying.
Australia chipped in with a sensational 185-run victory over England on the final day of the match at Old Trafford and retained the Ashes urn.
Nathan Lyon who has played some good cricket in his career has labelled Steve Smith as an ‘exceptional cricketer’ and the ‘best cricketer’ he has ever played with.
“The way Steve Smith came back after all this talk about him, he’s an exceptional cricketer. He’s probably the best cricketer I’ve ever played with, and to be able to play most of my career with him, it’s been extremely special and, hopefully, there’s a lot of highlights to come,” he said.
Steve Smith has been in an incredible form in the ongoing series and after missing the 3rd Ashes Test match due to concussion, Smith made a stellar rebound in the match at Manchester.
Australia’s best batsman has scored 211 runs in the first innings and 82 in the second, helping his side seal the deal.
The fifth and final Ashes Test match will start from September 12 at The Oval.
