Further, speaking of his bowling, Nathan Lyon revealed that he would like to take a cue from the bowling Ravichandran Ashwin, especially, from his recent tour to England. Nathan Lyon showered words of praise on Ashwin quoting that he is one of the best off-spinners in the world cricket.

“I have watched a lot of footage of Ravi Ashwin actually, bowling over here last year and in the tours that he has been here, how effective he has been. In my eyes, he is one of the best Offies going around. I can definitely learn from watching how he goes about it here in England. So yeah there is an arm ball in my back pocket that I may have to bring out depending on who I am bowling too. It is coming along quite nicely,” Nathan Lyon said to Mumbai Mirror.

Nathan Lyon, with 343 wickets from 86 Test matches, is the fourth most successful Australian bowler in Test history and will look to leapfrog the legendary Dennis Lillee and move into the third spot by the end of the series.

England has not lost a home Ashes since 2001 and go into this series having lifted the World Cup on home soil earlier in the month. Australia dominated the last series in 2017-18, however, and have enjoyed a revival after a poor run of form following the ball-tampering scandal.
