Lyon puts on im­pres­sive show

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - SUNDAY SPORTS -

Nathan Lyon stole the show as Aus­tralia pro­duced a tight, dis­ci­plined bowl­ing dis­play on a slug­gish pitch to re­duce Eng­land to 238 for nine on the first day of the fourth Ashes Test on Fri­day. Off-spin­ner Lyon, bowl­ing al­most ex­clu­sively from around the wicket, grabbed four for 42 to rip the heart out of the mid­dle or­der af­ter the home team had won the toss and cho­sen to bat first.
