Nathan Lyon Injury, Lord’s Test: The second Test match of the Ashes series 2023 between England and Australia is being played at Lord’s ground. During the second day’s play, Australian spin bowler Nathan Lyon badly injured his right leg while fielding. When the Kangaroo team reached the stadium for the third day’s play, Lyon was seen walking with the help of crutches. Leon’s injury can be considered a big blow for the Australian team.
Steve Smith, who scored a century in the Lord’s Test, gave an update on Nathan Lyon’s injury after the second day’s play. He had said that Leone is not feeling completely well right now. If he was not correct then it could be a big blow for us. I hope he gets fit, but looking at the current situation, it looks very difficult.
Nathan Lyon injured himself while chasing the ball in the 37th over of England’s innings while trying to stop it before the boundary line. After this Leon was taken outside the ground. Leone was in so much pain that he staggered out of the field. Prior to the injury, Lyon took 1 wicket for 35 runs in his 13 overs.
Murphy will get a chance if Nathan Lyon is ruled out of the series
Looking at the seriousness of Nathan Lyon’s right leg injury, Lyon’s expectation of being fully fit before the third Test match is also looking very low. Regarding this, Steve Smith had made it clear in his statement that if Leon is out, then Todd Murphy may get a chance to play in his place. Murphy made his Test debut on the tour of India this year.
