All spinners get attacked pretty much all the time on our decks but the fact lyon can still take nearly 4 wickets a test at 34 on those dead tracks while he is the obvious target is why he is so valuable, it really is a ridiculously hard job being a frontline spinner in australia right now and i don't think the top spinners in the world like ashwin jadeja shah herath ect would do that well if they played most of their games here.Loves the subcontinental wickets.
England will probably take an aggressive approach to Lyon this summer.
Not just 5fors either. A 6for, a 7for and an 8for.Here is a crazy stat.
Lyon has taken more 5fors in the Subcontient this year than any other bowler. That includes Jadeja, Herath and Ashwin.
The usual suspect here never will.......Lyon now 3rd all time among non-Asian bowlers for total wickets in Asia (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh), with less matches played and a better strike rate than the top two (Shane Warne and Daniel Vettori).
Does anyone rate him yet?
