doherty isn't that good but lyon surprisingly is quite decent, at least in comparison of where he is in his career to the other spinners going around today. by that i mean compare ajmal, swann etcs first 60 wickets and you see lyon is pretty much on target with them, they've obviously continued on and/or improved on that but lyon is still really young and really new to not just international cricket but even state cricket. he had only a handful of state matches under his belt before being selected for the national team.
