Lyon warms up for Pak­istan Tests with five-wicket haul

DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - LTH HE -

Ace Aus­tralian spin­ner Nathan Lyon got ready for a spin bat­tle against Pak­istan with a five-wicket haul on the open­ing day of warm-up match in Dubai on Satur­day. The 30-yearold proved he can lead a spin counter-at­tack in next month’s two-match Test se­ries as he took 5/87 against Pak­istan ‘A’ in the four-day prac­tice game. Once the new-ball pair of Mitchell Starc and Michael Neser went wicket-less with Pak­istan ‘A’ 24/0, Lyon came into his own to re­move Test hope­fuls Shan Ma­sood (14) and Sami As­lam (51).
