Nathan Lyon is excited for his battle against Babar Azam. Nathon Lyon, who is set to return against Pakistan, is expect to play a key part in Australia’s bowling assault.
Nathan Lyon’s desire to play Test cricket has never been stronger, as he prepares for a comeback after a calf injury halted his Ashes campaign earlier this year. Lyon is expect to play a key part in Australia’s bowling assault when he returns against Pakistan.
Lyon has collected 22 wickets in three matches at Perth’s Optus Stadium. Despite his previous success, Lyon recognizes Pakistan’s daunting task, notably their top batter, Babar Azam.\
Babar, who just stepped down as captain, had an excellent 44.38 average in eleven Tests against Australia. Lyon, who saw Babar’s talent, rated him as one of the world’s best hitters, particularly against spin.
Lyon regards him as Pakistan’s best player and recognizes the tremendous challenge he poses.
“Babar has been a pleasure to play against but also a huge challenge,” Lyon told ESPNcricinfo. “In my opinion, he’s one of the best batters in the world, especially against spin.” He’s a gentleman. However, I believe he is a first-rate bowler against all sorts of bowling.
“They’ve got some superstars in the side, and in my opinion, he’s the No. 1 in the Pakistan side.” He did quite well out here last time, so it’ll be a major task for us.”
After suffering an injury setback during the Ashes, Lyon, who is on the verge of achieving 500 Test wickets, is fired up for the forthcoming matches. He is excited to play at Optus Stadium in Perth and is looking forward to the encounter against Pakistan.
“The hunger level for playing Test matches is probably higher than ever if I’m being honest,” he went on to say. “I’m very excited about it.” I enjoy playing at Optus Stadium in Perth. It will be a struggle versus Pakistan, therefore it will be an entertaining battle.”
Lyon’s recent Sheffield Shield efforts, in which he claimed four wickets in three appearances for New South Wales, along with a thorough recuperation procedure, have left him pleased and confident. He expresses gratitude to everyone who have helped him and emphasizes the rigorous planning that has gone into his comeback.
“My rehabilitation has been exceptional,” he remarked. “I’ve had a lot of good people in my corner helping me out, making sure I ticked every box and did everything required.” If I hadn’t been coming off cricket, I’d be doubting it, but three Shield games, a one-day game, a grade game, and a lot of training [left me] feeling extremely satisfied with the way things are.”
