Nathan Lyon wishes to return to England for the Ashes series in 2027. ‘I feel like this injury, returning home, and seeing the lads play the three Test matches has really motivated me to get back there,’ Nathan Lyon said.
Nathan Lyon, the star Australian spinner, endured a roller coaster series in the Ashes 2023. The spin spearhead appeared to be in spectacular form in the opening game of the premier series, as his eight wickets in the first Test were key to Australia’s victory. His Ashes campaign, however, was cut short when he suffered a calf injury in the second Test of the series.
Unfortunately, his injury turned out to be more serious than first suspected. His calf injury forced him to miss the rest of the series, and rookie Todd Murphy stepped in. Many people are aware of Lyon’s dedication to the game, and the 35-year-old. Recently stated that he is looking forward to returning to England for the Ashes in 2027. It is worth noting that Lyon will be 39 years old in 2027, and he believes that watching the Ashes 2023 revitalized his hunger.
“I tell you one thing, I’m definitely not joking about going back to Ashes. I feel like having this injury, coming home, and watching the guys play the three Test matches has really driven me to get back there and make sure I’m back playing cricket,” Nathan Lyon said on SEN’s The Run Home.
My enthusiasm for the game has most likely reached new heights: Lyon
In addition, Nathan Lyon stated that his injury layoff has allowed him to relax and set new goals for himself. Despite being 35 years old, the renowned spinner believes he has many wickets left in him and can contribute significantly to the national squad.
“My hunger for the game has probably gone to a new level, and this has allowed me to have a little bit more time off during my rehab, sit back, reflect, reset some goals, and find a really decent purpose for me,” Lyon said.
“I’m definitely not writing off going back to England for the Ashes—the finish line for me hasn’t even popped up in my eyesight yet, I’ve still got a lot of cricket left in me and a lot to offer the Renegades, New South Wales cricket, but also Australia,” he added.
