Nathan Lyon: Australia Test off-spinner signed by Lancashire for the 2024 County Championship

After breaking his calf against England in the second Ashes Test in June, the 35-year-old returned to first-class cricket last month.

Lyon will be available for all types of cricket. During a short time with Worcestershire in 2017 in county cricket, he took six wickets in four games.

After Glen Chapple left at the end of last season, Lancashire still doesn’t have a head coach.

“This is an exciting opportunity for me, and I am really looking forward to heading over to England for a full season of county cricket with Lancashire,” Lyon told the club’s website.

“I love going to England to play cricket.” I’m excited to keep learning and getting better at my game. Hopefully, I can help the Red Rose win games and share some of the knowledge I’ve learned over the years.

Lyon also agreed to play for Hampshire in 2020, but the move was slowed down because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Before hurting his leg and missing the last three Ashes Tests this summer, Lyon had played in 100 straight Tests, making him only the seventh player in the history of men’s international cricket to do so.

Four hundred catches in Tests is more than any other player in Australia’s history, except for Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath.

Lyon could play next season with England bowling great James Anderson. Together, they have taken 690 wickets in Tests, which puts them eighth and third on the all-time list.
