Australia veteran spinner Nathan Lyon says Tim Paine is the best wicket keeper in the world – Latest Cricket News

Australia’s legendary spinner Nathan Lyon called former Australia Test captain Tim Paine the best wicketkeeper in the world. He said that Tim Paine’s presence will be important in the Ashes series. He has resigned from the captaincy of the Test team, but he wants to play in the Ashes, so he should be given a chance. He said that Penn, who stepped down as the captain of the Test team after a case of sending an obscene message came to light last week, has 100 per cent support from the Australia team.

One wicket away from achieving the milestone of 400 Test wickets, Lyon said in a statement on Thursday, “In my view, Tim is the best wicketkeeper in the country and in the world. I can 100% guarantee that he has the full support of the Australian dressing room. I don’t see them as a distraction at all. We are professional players and we will do our bit by going on the field. Tim has made a mistake, but I agree he has shown a lot of courage to be honest. I have all my support for Tim. I look forward to meeting him as soon as we come out of the quarantine.

Lyon said, “It will be important to give Paine a chance in the opening match of the Ashes in Brisbane on December 8, because he is the best wicketkeeper in the world. The selectors should take him in the team. The selectors always said that they are going to pick the best available XI and in my view Tim Paine is the best wicketkeeper in the world, so he should be picked in the team. Every bowler has an extraordinary relationship with him. He is a very nice person and has a lot of respect inside the dressing room. It is worth noting that in 2017 Paine had resigned from the captaincy of Australia’s Test team for sending obscene messages to a female colleague.
