Nathan Lyons seems to be very excited about the new journey he is about to embark upon. Lyon was recently injured due to a complicated calf injury and was ruled out of the Ashes, he will gradually recover, and it will be fascinating to see he him perform in December with Adam Zampa on his side.

Nathan Lyon is undeniably one of the best spinners; after test matches, he has played the most in the BBL, Lyon has been successful in taking 44 wickets from the 38 matches that he played, and soon those numbers will change.

Nathan Lyon on playing for Melbourne Renegades

Nathan Lyon looks forward to playing for a different Franchise, and the reason why he is so thrilled is because he has friends from Melbourne Renegades. “I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of the Melbourne Renegades,” Lyon said, as quoted by

“(Marvel Stadium’s) a place where I enjoy bowling, it tends to spin a little bit. I’m looking forward to hopefully joining up with ‘Zamps’ in a really good partnership and putting a show on for the Renegades fans".

“I’ve got some really good friends who are part of the Melbourne Renegades, and that’s one of the reasons I wanted to come down. There’s a good group of senior players there who I’ve played a lot of cricket with internationally and also domestically, then you look at the younger guys throughout the roster – it’s a pretty powerful squad in my eyes.

Lyon further said: “I think we need to set the benchmark high, shoot for the finals and make sure we go and try to lift the trophy”.
