Manuka Oval’s former groundsman and long term ACT Comets player has just taken his 100th test wicket in the Boxing Day Test against England keeping us in the running to take a clean sweep!

Congratulations to him on an unexpectedly prolific test career!

Having felt personally responsible for the demise of Nathan Hauritz*, I’m glad to see Lyon doing so well.

*I sat next to Hauritz during the second State of Origin game in 2008. After the game I asked him for a photo, which he obliged (good on him). Afterwards I shook his hand and said “good luck in the Ashes”. Nathan Hauritz was never selected for the Test team again.

Haurie was pretty hard done by. His numbers stack up pretty well and he could bat.

However, congrats to Lyon. May there be a couple of hundred more…

Plus our Nath has the best average of any number 11 batsmen in the game (20 inns or more).

Plus another ex ACT boy is also having a superb series.

In fact, most runs ever by a wicketkeeper in an ashes series. 390 at 65 with a possible three innings to go. Throw in the most catches in an ashes series in the previous series and Haddin is in the best form of his life.

Nathan Lyon’s decision to transfer from SA to NSW was driven by his desire to spend more time with his family in Young. Anyone know which club he is playing for?

Northern Districts I think.

Used to play for Wests and ANU while in Canberra.
