Australia spinner Nathan Lyon said on Wednesday, March 2, that he was proud to be involved in the team’s historic first tour of Pakistan in 24 years and aspired for a 3-0 test series win to make the trip even more memorable. Australia completed an authoritative 4-0 Ashes series victory over England earlier this year and while they face polar opposite conditions in Pakistan, Lyon said the goal was to front up to the challenge and win every match. Lyon said the wickets were akin to the ones in the United Arab Emirates and he expected a good batting track in Rawalpindi.
