AAP Australian Sports – Nathan Lyon’s control will make him the hardest spinner to get away in the World Cup finals with the tweaker finally finding a home in Australia’s one-day attack.

Summary

  • Nathan Lyon’s control will make him the hardest spinner to get away in the World Cup finals with the tweaker finally finding a home in Australia’s one-day attack.
  • At his best, Lyon can build pressure with his constant dot balls, forcing opposition batsmen to take risks against the likes of Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins at the other end.
  • In his three World Cup games alone, seven wickets fell at the other end while Lyon was bowling.
