GOAT? Who you kidding? An accolade like that is reserved for sportsmen like Bradman, Jordan, Schumacher, Senna, Woods etc not a village green bowler without an ounce of God given talent

Wouldn't let him mow the lawn at my hometown ground, let alone let him play for my club...

Well and truly outbowled Ashwin this series.. Pretty good effort considering it's on Ashwin's home turf

Excellent day from the Aussies Cummins has def got wheels

As for Lyon....once again bowled a good line and got bounce on an awkward length

It's getting very tiresome reading stuff on here about him. The guy is a decent bowler and anyone who thinks he would not walk into the England team really can't be the full ticket.

Would agree he is matching Ashwin

Come on give the guy some credit  :)

In fairness, walking into the England team isn't difficult ! Moeen or Rashid ..

I go off what I watch he nearly as good as Swann and Swann was decent..

Lyons is decent but it all opinions he playing for his country whilst you and I are playing village greens !!! I think i beat him on kits stakes though !!!

Since Lyon has so far outbowled Ashwin this series , and since his overall record is better than many , and comparable to many decent test spinners (think Vettori for example) , it seems your  hometown club is one highly talented , very exclusive , picky club indeed ... knocking back test bowlers left , right and centre . ' Yeah mate , i know , i know , you took 200 odd test wickets , blah blah blah....but there's just no room for you at our club I'm afraid'.  :) ;)

Maybe @Felix Tito is actually Adil Rashid or Mooen Ali, and is just jealous of the fact that Lyon is a proper (and better) spinner?
At least it'd explain why he's able to knock back very good players...

From my point of view and ignoring the stats which are always a little more flattering on some and less on others, depending on where they have played more.....
But the topic of Lyons!

Would I pick Lyons over Ashwin or Jadeja? No way! But I rate them as two of the best at the moment. Both decent with the bat too!
Would i rate Lyon as highly as Swann ot Vettori...again no.
However, Lyon is a decent bowler! Does he offer masses of rip or variations and tricky to play like Shane used to be? No!
But he does offer some consistency and bowls good lines.
I would ask 2 questions.....
1. Does he get wickets?
2. would I have him in the England line up?

And it would be a huge YES to both questions!
He does get regular wickets and trying to say otherwise is pointless. Some would argue that he only gets wickets when then batsmen go after him or play a rash shot - in other words, he rarely gets a wicket using skill and cunning and tactical bowling. But surely the skill and tactic Lyon uses is to bowl in a consistent way, so as to force the batsman into changing his shots and therefore make a mistake. Surely doing this is a skill in itself?

The guy takes wickets and seems to have found some decent form. Just my opinion!

I love how Maxwell has no understanding of the situation and just does his thing. Glorious.

exactly what is needed to get the momentum back to Australia

whether he has a brain or not for the situation who knows

but counter attacking is dead right

gilchrist did this so so well in the past....

(to us mainly)
