As the current Australian cricket team chases a first Ashes win in England in 18 years, their leading spin bowler hopes to be part of a winning unit. <p></p> <p></p>(<strong>READ: </strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/ashes-2019-australias-test-squad-far-from-settled-says-justin-langer-ahead-of-pre-ashes-warmup-871231" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Australia's Test squad far from settled, says Justin Langer</a>) <p></p> <p></p>And it is the abiding memory of Warne dancing at Trent Bridge after Australia beat England in the fourth Test back in 1997 that's driving Lyon. <p></p> <p></p>"The big memory for me is seeing Shane Warne with the stump," said on the latest episode of <em>The Unplayable Podcast. </em>"That's the biggest thing. I'm desperate to replicate that. I reckon it would be brilliant. If we win the Ashes I'll do it. I've been practicing, don't worry about that. Like Steve Smith batting in his room, I've got a stump up there." <p></p> <p></p>Lyon, Australia's most successful finger-spinner and fourth-highest wicket-taker in Tests, has been to England twice to contest the Ashes and has tasted defeat both times. Now he wants to correct that anomaly. <p></p> <p></p>"It's like a dream," Lyon said. "As a kid you always dream of firstly playing cricket for Australia but then winning the Ashes. Winning the Ashes is always (up) there but winning it away makes it more special." <p></p> <p></p>(<strong>READ: </strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/ashes-2019-australias-first-test-xi-could-be-decided-based-on-four-day-intra-squad-match-says-tim-paine-871155" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Australia's Test XI could be decided based on four-day intra-squad game</a>) <p></p> <p></p>Lyon, who has 343 wickets in 86 Tests, is confident of Australia's chances in the Ashes. <p></p> <p></p>"I've never gone into a series, whether it's a three-(match) series or a four-game series and thought I was going to lose one," he said. "So I'm coming over here to win five Test matches." <p></p> <p></p>The first Ashes Test is at Edgbaston from August 1.
