Former Canadian opener and now Australian spinning coach John Davison has hailed Nathan Lyon as one of the best spinners in the world and tipped him to be a spinning great in the years to come.


Michael Clarke, after his Ashes 2013-14 victory said, “It’s an extremely special occasion. We couldn’t foresee 5-0 after the England series but I said then the work we were putting in behind the scenes we were going to get the rewards,” said Clarke after the match.


“The bowlers have done a fantastic job, I told them before the Test that they were the best attack in the world and I think they’ve earned that mantle,” added Clarke before getting his hands on the Waterford Crystal Ashes trophy.
