“We knew it was coming”

Australia off-spinner Nathan Lyon has announced that he is not surprised the baggy greens hold a 4-0 lead over England in the ongoing Ashes series.

Lyon noted that whitewashing England 5-0 would be the perfect way to erase the scars of their 3-0 loss in the last Ashes series.

“We knew it was coming, to be honest,” Lyon said. “Yes, England beat us over there 3-0, but it was a lot closer [than that scoreline] over there.

“We had opportunities, but we fell over at the line. Here in Australia we have won the bigger moments and won them pretty well. It has been a big reward for what we went through in England.”
