Australia spinner Nathan Lyon says he wishes to be a part of a team that can win a Test series in India. Australia have lost back-to-back Test series against India at home and have not won a series in India since 2004-05
Against all odds, India became the first team to beat Australia in a Test at the Gabba in over three decades earlier this year to register a 2-1 series win.
"One of the big goals is I'd really like to be part of an Australian team that can win a Test series in India," Lyon said, according to Sydney Morning Herald.
"I think I can play a massive role in that as well. That's definitely one of my big goals. I think that's one of the big goals team-wise. That is a big focus," he added.
Lyon who is one short of 400 Test wickets reckons that Australia did not do the basics well enough against India at home. "I don't think we did the basics well enough for long enough - that's purely what it comes down to. We didn't take our chances when we created the chances in the field," said Lyon.
"In Test cricket, I've played enough of it to realise if you do the basics for a long period of time and challenge people's defence you'll create chances here and there. That's one big area we can get better," he added.
Lyon is currently preparing for the Ashes, which will see Australia take on England in a five-match Test series, starting December 8 at the Gabba.
