India vs Australia: Ajinkya Rahane presents signed Indian jersey to Nathan Lyon | Cricket News – Times of India


BRISBANE: After scripting history at The Gabba on Tuesday, stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane on behalf of Team India presented spinner Nathan Lyon with a signed jersey for playing 100 Test for Australia.
Lyon, who is only the third Australian bowler after Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath to play 100 Tests, has taken 399 wickets in the longest format of the game.
“From Indian team we would like to give a signed jersey to Nathan Lyon for his 100th Test match,” said Rahane while handing over the jersey to the off-spinner.

Lyon entered the fourth and final Test with 396 career wickets but wasn’t able to enter the elite list after a dismal outing at The Gabba.

The last time a visiting team came out triumphant from the Brisbane Cricket Ground was back in November 1988 when the mighty West Indian outfit under the leadership of Viv Richards thrashed Allan Border’s team by 9 wickets.

What makes the feat even more commendable is how the Indians fought multiple injuries and mental fatigue – due to the bio-bubble restrictions — to register a historic win.
India’s memorable win has also ensured they toppled Australia in the ICC Test Team Rankings to claim the second spot.
