Summary

  • Australia spinner Nathan Lyon says that he won’t shrink from the responsibility of the vice-captaincy of the Test team if it is offered to him but insisted that all seniors players need to step up now.
  • “There will be a vice-captain appointed, but I think there’ll be a good leadership group in that Test squad.
  • “Those guys and throw in Mitch Marsh, Shaun Marsh and Uzzie (Khawaja), the more senior players, we’re going to have to play a big role as a group to be Tim’s vice-captains.”
  • Lyon says that all the senior players will play a massive role in rebuilding the side devastated by the suspensions of Smith, Warner and Cameron Bancroft.
  • “It’s a rebuilding phase, it’s a new era … so I think I’ve got a really big job along with the other senior players … in making sure we’re doing everything right by Cricket Australia and the Australian public and play the best possible cricket we can.”
