Bazball Convert Lyon Signs Up for County Stint with Former Ashes Rival

World-class spinner Nathan Lyon is set to return to England next year to play county cricket with Lancashire, despite his recent harsh words about the sport. During his last visit to England in 2023, Lyon was injured and had to cut his trip short. This time around, the Australian cricketer is eager to make a significant contribution to Lancashire and their squad, while also passing on valuable experiences and insights. Lyon’s return to England has been met with enthusiasm from Lancashire’s director of cricket performance, Mark Chilton, who views the addition of Lyon as a fantastic opportunity for the team and their young spin bowlers. Lyon is currently working his way back to full fitness and will be available for Lancashire at the start of the 2024 county championship season.
