Lyon is only 29 even if he had got dumped i would have backed him to play tests again, they have axed him twice already when he was averaging low 30's which gives you an idea about the expectations placed on our spinners post warne.But for O'Keefe's unfortunate timing with injury the OP could well have been correct. It's a bit of a sliding doors tale.
He flights the ball more bowling around the wicket, which gives him more revolutions on the ball. Over the wicket he tends to force it, and actually gets little turn, plus, it’s easy for batsmen to bat to over the wicketHes a much better bowler than years ago but why he isn't bowling over the wicket is beyond me. He's fighting against his own angle which is ridiculous when he is getting so much spin.
I’m thinking somewhere between 400-450.Where can he end up from here?
10th highest wicket taker for spinners (283) and is only 30. How many more years left?
Only Herath (39) and Ashwin (31) are still active. Can he pass Vettori on 362? Can he get to Herath (409) and Harbhajan (416).
If he can get to 350+ wickets that'd be a fine career for the former groundsman.
Yes def great effort.Recent behaviour notwithstanding, well done on 300 Test wickets.
Definitely more than anybody here would have expected him to get when he debuted in 2011.
I was referring to the incident RE ABdV.Yes def great effort.
Was he involved? Seems conclusive that Starc and hazelwood werent. Bet their wrapped with Smithy for implicating the ‘leadership’ group.
I’m giving him full benefit of the doubt of a brain fade for the AB dropping the ball. I’ve done similar daft s**t and regretted it instantly in the past. Not one month ago, I attempted a mankad in a fit of “plumb LBW not given” rage. Wasn’t a good feeling at the top of the mark next ball!I was referring to the incident RE ABdV.
There's no evidence that he was involved in the ball-tampering fracas.
