Best thing Lyon is doing is keeping Doherty and Beer out of the test team and he deserves respect for that. Must be able to sing too bcos I think he's a pretty shaky member of the team to be given the team song.
It's more a commentary on how little Burgey rates Swann than him thinking Lyon is world class anyway; I reckon I rate Lyon more than Burgey does.
Swan is the most monumentally over rated player on earth IMO. Has a couple of good years but is apparently brilliant because people think he's funny and because he has a stupid looking chin.
You can't not love Burgey tbf.
**** I was expecting heaps of trolls and uninformed mongs chiming in with comments along the lines of "Lyon is a badder bowler than everyone cos he sucks at doing cricket." That's roughly the quality of 2/3 of posters on cricinfo.
I'm appreciating the level of knowledge and understanding displayed here during my brief stay so far. Should have joined ages ago instead of spamming the ****e out of my only mate who has a hint of interest in cricket. He's well and truly grown tired of my incessant rants on cricketing minutiae.
I spam the **** out of two specific mates (who know a lot about cricket tbf) but CW gives a far wider range of opinions (and one of my mates bags me about Kohli 24/7 and calls him Lohli)*. Its a great place.
* said mate has a long-term bet with me re: Kohli vs. Chandimal. Said mate is not a Lankan either, just loves Chandimal.
Lyon rips it enough on Australian pitches.
He also gets good bounce, that all bodes well for being a decent bowler in India imo.
I reckon it will be between Ojha and Lyon for the top wicket taker.
Calling it now, Lyon will be Australia's highest wicket taker in England.
You are either predicting England 4-0 or 5-0, or you've gone bonkers.
reports are cupboard96 isn't much of a bonker
I heard he used to be a groundsman.
