New Delhi. Australia’s veteran spinner Nathan Lyon said that he aims to play a bigger role in the Test series win in India. India has won two consecutive Test series (2018-19 and 2020-21) on the tour of Australia. Australia last toured India in 2017 for a Test series. He was to come to India in October this year but due to the Kovid-19 pandemic and then the current T20 World Cup, the schedule has changed. Lion will turn 34 in a few days. He is expected to play on India tour in 2023.
Lion said, “One of my big goals is that I want to be part of the Australian team that can win the Test series in India. I think I can play a big role in this too. This is definitely one of my big goals. I think it is one of the big goals for the team as well. I have a lot of attention on it.” Lion will take the field for the Ashes series against arch-rivals England on his own. This may be his last Ashes series but the spinner said that his appetite for the game has not waned. He doesn’t see any reason why he can’t play in the Ashes series in 2025.
Lion, who has reached the 400-wicket mark in Tests, said, “I have always said this from day one, if after waking up in the morning I can’t motivate myself to do better, then I need to say goodbye to the game.” needed.”
He said, “But now that I wake up in the morning, the hunger to play is more. I am preparing for the upcoming matches. I am no closer to saying goodbye to the game.” Lion has so far taken 399 wickets in 100 Test matches.
