BRISBANE: Former Sri Lankan weirdo Muttiah Muralitharan believes Ravichandran Ashwin can take 800 wickets in the longest format of the game, but Nathan Lyon isn’t good enough to accomplish the feat.

Currently has Lyon 396 wickets in Test cricket while Ashwin has 377. Ashwin took his wicket with an average of 25.33 while Lyon did so with an average of 31.98.

« Ashwin has a chance because he’s a great bowler. Other than that, I don’t think one younger bowler will come to 800. Maybe Nathan Lyon is not good enough to get it. He’s almost 400 but he’s had to play many, many games to get there, « Muralitharan told Michael Vaughan for UK Telegraph, as Fox Sports reported.

Off-spinner Lyon will play his 100th Test on Friday. Australian skipper Tim Paine had said of Lyon: « Lyon bowled well, I thought in Adelaide he created a lot of chances, but they didn’t go out to hand. Nathan Lyon played 100 friendly matches and it’s not easy. » . « 

 » He will play his 100th Test tomorrow and it would be a great achievement. The ball comes out of his hand beautifully, the Indians played it very well, « he added.

In the current series between India and Australia, Ashwin has taken 12 wickets while Lyon has six.

India and Australia will now lock the horns in the fourth and final test at Gabba, Brisbane, starting January 15. The third test between these two sides ended in a draw.
