Lyon's five-wicket haul against New Zealand was his first in his neighbouring country which made him boast fifers in eight nations now which is the joint most for any bowler in Tests

He has five-fors in Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies and now New Zealand

Sri Lankan legend Muralitharan and Aussie legend Warne also have fifers in nine countries
