Nathan Lyon Profile | Nathan Lyon Biography

(This Nathan Lyon profile was written on Dec 2014)

Nathan Lyon is the most underrated spinners in the world today. This finger spinner looks so innocuous with his tiny slim frame but does give the ball a fair rip.

One of the most humble looking cricketers, Nathan Lyon had actually started off as a ground curator working at the Adelaide Oval. Australia for a long time have been looking for a spinner to serve them in Test cricket following Shane Warne’s retirement and finally they settled in with Nathan Lyon.

This off-spinner who has a very clean and classy action made his Test debut against Sri Lanka at Galle in 2011. Nathan Lyon has improved his bowling by leaps and bounds to turn into a match-winner on his own even in Australian conditions. Lyon is an old-fashioned off-spinner who generously flights the ball and gets a lovely loop going. He has a great bowling grip which allows the ball to land on the seam and kick up and turn sharply off the pitch.
