England all-rounder Moeen Ali reversed the decision on his Test retirement as he was included in the first Ashes Test. The veteran was also trusted by his captain, Ben Stokes as Ali bowled a lot of overs. However, the off-spinner looked in discomfort throughout the progression of the game and now Ali’s Australian counterpart, Nathan Lyon has come up with a bizarre comment describing the Englishman’s situation.

Lyon has compared Ali with a singer who has lost out on his vocals but is still expecting to put on a concert. The Australian made this comment after the end of Day 4’s play. 

When asked to comment on Ali’s situation and the England spinner seeking medical treatment on his finger every second minute, Nathan Lyon said he sympathizes with Moeen. “It’s massive, to be honest with you, I actually sitting here have a lot of sympathy for Moeen. Not coming off any red-ball cricket for two years and was thrown into bowling a lot of overs,” said Lyon in the post-match presser. 

“The best way I can probably sum it up, and it will probably sound weird, is a singer losing their vocals but expecting to go out and put a concert on,” the Australian added.

Now coming to the match, the Ashes opener is up for grabs for both teams. While Australia (107/3) need 174 runs to pull off a historic win, England eye the seven remaining wickets. As Day 5 starts, England bowlers will have Usman Khawaja (batting on 34) and Scott Boland (13*) to bowl at. 

Meanwhile, Australia still have a few good names sitting in the dressing room waiting for their chance. Travis Head, Cameron Green, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, and even Nathan Lyon can bat through and thus Australia will fancy their chances. If the visitors manage to pull this chase off, it will be Australia’s highest-run chase since 2005 where they scored 282 runs but lost by two runs.
