Australia capable of Ashes whitewash Claims Nathan Lyon

Nathan Lyon feels his team has a chance to take the Ashes, stating that England would have reservations about their own prospects given their terrible past in Australia.

The visitors have lost nine of their past ten Tests in Australia and have not won in Brisbane – where the first Test begins next Wednesday – since 1986.

Lyon, who is one wicket short of 400 Test wickets, warned fellow spin legend Shane Warne during a question and answer session that the record will weigh on England.

“I think England will have some doubts because a lot of their senior players have been out here on tours before and they haven’t won a Test out here,” said the 34-year-old.

“If you look at the likes of Joe Root, Ben Stokes, and these guys, I think they’re going to be confident.

“But I think there’ll be some doubt in their minds (about) the Australian side and the way the Australian team go about their business here in Australia.

“So I’m not sure if it’s fear — because no doubt they’ll have their belief within their squad,” added the 100-Test veteran.

“But I know here in the Australian cricket team, we have the belief that we can come out here and win the Ashes, and win it 5-0.”
