Veteran Australian spinner Nathan Lyon made fun of England’s “Bazball,” claiming that he had won the recent Ashes series 2-0 against it. He also praised the aggressive style of cricket played by Australian batsmen, using veteran David Warner as an example.
The 35-year-old was forced to withdraw from the Ashes after suffering a calf injury during Day 2 of the second Test at Lord’s Cricket Ground. In the series, he took nine wickets overall.
I admit I didn’t really notice BazBall, despite the fact that everyone keeps bringing it up. during both of my tests I’ve had with them. My test record against BazBall is 2-0. I consider the Australian cricket squad and the batsmen we’ve had, such as David Warner… He has racked up hundreds of points in a single session, in my experience. SEN’s The Run Home interviewed Lyon about his brand of attacking cricket.
The ‘Bazball’ tactic should be adopted, he continued, adding that it all depends on understanding the crucial times of the match.
If I’m being completely honest with you, I believe that BazBall is a lot of smoke and mirrors. In my opinion, if you’re going to play an aggressive style of cricket, it’s important to be able to shift between gears and recognise when it’s appropriate to do so, as well.
Regarding returning to the Ashes, I’m not kidding at all: Lyon
Further discussing his return to the Ashes, Nathan Lyon said that the three home games were what spurred him to participate once more. He continued by saying that his love for the sport had probably grown to a new level and that he still had a lot of cricket left in him.
“I’ll tell you one thing, when I say I’m going back to the Ashes, I’m not kidding at all. I believe that my desire to return and resume playing cricket has been greatly fueled by this injury, my return home, and seeing the players play the three Test matches. My desire for the game has likely reached a new level, which has given me a little more time off during my recovery to sit back, contemplate, reset some goals, and discover a very good purpose for myself.
“Definitely not ruling out the possibility of returning to England for the Ashes… I still have a lot to give the Renegades, New South Wales cricket, as well as Australia, the 35-year-old said. “The finish line for me hasn’t even appeared in my field of vision yet.
