Australia's superior spinner Nathan Lyon has missed the adrenaline surge of Test cricket while he was from the game because of the COVID-19 pandemic however says the break wants to go past 500 wickets in the arrangement.
Lyon, who is only four games shy of playing 100 Tests, has caught 390 wickets up until now, the most by any Australian off-spinner. "I actually feel I'm improving and still feel like I have a great deal of cricket to offer Cricket Australia," Lyon, who turns 33 on Friday, was cited as saying by fox sports.
"Certainly 500 and past is on my radar." Lyon will turn out to be only the tenth part in Australian history to arrive at 100 Tests, in the fourth and last match against India in Brisbane ahead of schedule one year from now.
The veteran spinner last played a Test in January this year prior to the COVID-19 pandemic shut down cricket over the globe. He says the break has made him hungrier to perform. "Likely it's driven my adoration for the game," Lyon said.
"Without having the option to play the game that you love so a lot and not having the option to play that consistently that is driven my enthusiasm to get out there and that yearning to perform well once more.
"The most I've missed is that pressure that joins playing Test cricket. Missing that adrenaline." Lyon has snapped nine wickets in three games for New South Wales this season.
India's visit starts on November 27 with three ODIs and the same number of T20Is before the four-Test arrangement starts in Adelaide on December 17.
