Ashes 2017-18: Nathan Lyon hopes to make England uncomfortable in Gabba

about the video
Nathan Lyon has pointed out how the tourists finished their last visit in disarray and recalled the devastation caused by left-armer Mitchell Johnson in 2013-2014, when he took 37 wickets with his ferocious fast bowling as the Australians inflicted a crushing 5-0 home series defeat. Ahead of the first Test in Brisbane from Thursday, the off-spinner said many in the England squad remain haunted by Johnson’s assault, taking aim at captain Joe Root who was axed for the final Test in Sydney. “I know Root got dropped last time when he was here, so it’d be good to get him dropped again wouldn’t it? If we can start by opening up that crack, it’s pretty crucial,” Lyon told reporters. “There’s a lot of scars for the English guys, especially coming over here, especially when we have two guys bowling 150ks (93 mph), not just one now,” he added, referring to Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. On the 2013-2014 tour, Jonathan Trott was sent home with stress-related illness after the first Test, while Graeme Swann abruptly retired mid-series. (Video credit: Perform) (Hindustan Times)
