Australia vs Pakistan 1st Test: The three-match Test series between Australia and Pakistan is scheduled to begin in Perth from December 14. The command of the Australian team for this series is in the hands of Pat Cummins. The captain of Pakistan is Shan Masood. Australia’s star opener batsman David Warner has already announced that this will be his last Test series. But spinner Nathan Lyon can make a big record in the first test match against Pakistan. Let us know about it.

Will make this record by taking only four wickets

Nathan Lyon is counted among the best bowlers in the world. He has won many matches for the Australian team on his own. When he is in rhythm, he can destroy any batting attack. So far he has taken 496 wickets in 122 matches of Test cricket. If he manages to take four more wickets in the first Test match against Pakistan, he will complete his 500 wickets in Test cricket. Lion was out of the Ashes series due to injury. But now he will have a chance to reach this big record.
