Legendary Australia pacer Glenn McGrath backs veteran spinner Nathan Lyon to surpass him in most Test wickets tally.

Lyon, who became only the third Australian in history to take 500 Test wickets in AUS vs PAK 1st Test, needs 64 wickets more to surpass the legendary Aussie pacer.

“To me, records are there for people to break,” he said as the McGrath Foundation prepared for its 16th annual Pink Test fundraising initiative.

“If ‘Lyono’ goes past, credit to him. He’s had an incredible career”, the Aussie legend added.

When asked if the veteran off-spinner can surpass the spin wizard Shane Warne, McGrath said, “Whether he gets to ‘Shano’, that might be a different kettle of fish. It’s up to him. He’s obviously bowling well, he knows the game so well. It’s totally up to him (whether he can pass Warne).”

Notably, to date, only Sri Lankan legend Muttiah Muralitharan managed to reach the 700 Test wicket-mark.

Lyon, who is already 36, had expressed his wish to play Ashes in England in 2027. If the spinner manages to extend his career till 2027, he is likely to reach Warne’s 708-wicket mark.

Nathan Lyon will next be seen in the AUS vs PAK 3rd Test, starting on January 3 in Sydney.
