‘I love playing cricket in England and no doubt will enjoy the 2020 summer with the Hampshire players, coaches, members and supporters. We will all be focused on winning the County Championship in 2020. I can’t wait’, he added.

Hampshire Director of Cricket Giles White described Lyon as a ‘high-class spinner’. He expressed his excitement to have him in the club.
