Srinagar: Australia ace offspinner Nathan Lyon, has said that he is excited to face Pakistan’s No.1 superstar Babar Azam during upcoming Pakistan vs Australia Test series.

Speaking with ESPNcricinfo, Lyon, hailed former Pakistan skipper for being a pleasure to play against.

“Babar, firstly, has been a pleasure to play against but he’s also been a massive challenge,” Lyon said.

“He’s one of the best batters in the world in my eyes, especially against spin. He’s a class player. But think he’s a class player against all types of bowling,” he added.

“They’ve got some superstars in the side, and if I’m talking superstars he’s the No. 1 in the Pakistan side in my eyes. He played reasonably well out here last time so it’s going to be a big challenge for us for sure,” he said.

Reflecting on his own excitement for the upcoming Test matches, Lyon emphasized his eagerness to play at Optus Stadium in Perth.

“The hunger level for playing Test matches is probably higher than ever if I’m being honest,” he said.
