8/64 at Holkar Cricket Stadium (2022-23)
In the third Test at Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore, on a red-turning track, Nathan Lyon bowled venomously against the Indians in the second innings of the match. Lyon’s sharp spin troubled the Indian batters which led to their batting collapse and defeat. Lyon ended his spell at 8/64, the second-best bowling figures of his career. Lyon went past Sri Lanka’s legend Muttiah Murlitharan to 2nd place on the list of most wickets against India and also equalled Richie Benaud’s tally of most 5-wicket hauls vs India in India.
