Australian off-spinner Nathan Lyon has added yet another feather to his cap of records in the ongoing second Test match between Australia and Pakistan at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Lyon rattled through the Pakistan top order in the first session on Day 1 to give the visitors the early advantage in the Test match!
At one stage, he picked up four wickets in the space of six deliveries to slump Pakistan from 57/1 to 57/5. And yes, he did not concede a single run while picking up those four wickets. He is now with 314 wickets in his 80 Test matches and is currently the fourth highest wicket taker for Australia in this format of the game.
It was an eventful morning session in the second Test match on Day 1 after Pakistan opted to bat first. Marnus Labuschagne held on to a difficult catch standing at short leg to give Australia and Mitchell Starc their first wicket in the Test match. Then it was all about Nathan Lyon and Pakistan’s fumbled batting!
Lyon removed Azhar Ali (15 runs), Haris Sohail (0), Asad Shafiq (0) and Babar Azam (0) in the space of six deliveries to give the first session on Day 1 to Australia. Ali and Haris were dismissed in two consecutive deliveries while Shafiq and Babar bagged two-ball ducks each in Lyon’s next over!
