The Strain is right on India: Nathan Lyon : Cricket, News


  • Lyon stated the “strain is directly on India” from the continuing four-match Test collection.

  • The series is currently locked at 1-1.

  • Lyon has picked up 13 wickets up to now.

Australia’s top spinner Nathan Lyon stated the “strain is right on India” from the continuing four-match Test string and patted his group because of its fighting display in the last two games. ()

The series is with two more matches scheduled to be performed in Ranchi and Dharamsala.

The off-spinner has been quoted as saying on Sydney Morning Herald, “We are one win away from keeping the trophy and that is what we are here in order to do.

“The strain is appropriate on India – there is no pressure on people. Everybody stated ‘we were planning to lose 4-0, they are no good, they are a cricket group learning,’ but we believe we can beat the teams that are top anywhere in the world.

“We demonstrated that in the first Test, we came close in the second Test and also that hurt – that is probably the best thing about that match. I think that they’re feeling the strain a little bit to be honest. And it’s fine.”

The Australians today left Bengaluru to get Ranchi. Lyon, who abandoned India flummoxed at the first innings of the second Test in Bengaluru together with his spinners, briefly spoke about the importance of reverse swing.

“Together with our air rate and capacity to find the ball reversing, and the sooner we could do this off the better it is,” Lyon said.


Lyon endured a cracked-skin in his right index finger but he is confident that he’ll probably be from the playing XI for the third game.

He is confident his finger disorder (divide callus) will soon be treated on time for your match.

“I have bowled a great deal of balls on the summer and it typically occurs once or twice annually. It merely split. It was fairly debilitating there for a little,” Lyon said.

“And you can’t bowl on (glue) tape — you can find laws and rules out there that you can’t bowl on tape so I wasn’t even considering that,” he was quoted as saying in the Cricket Australia website.

“The last time I was here (in India, in 2013), the identical thing occurred in the third Test and I was able to play three days afterwards. So I am more than confident in turning out for the next Test.”
