India vs Australia Ahmedabad Test: India’s dry pitches are becoming a boon for Australian spinner Nathan Lyon. This is the reason why he has proved to be the most successful bowler in the Kangaroo team in the current Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He started taking wickets in Test matches played in Delhi and Indore. The fourth and final Test, which will begin in Ahmedabad from March 9, will be crucial for India. If Team India is to qualify for the final of the World Test Championship, it is a must to win this match. Meanwhile, Nathan Lyon remains a problem for India. His victory left India in a dilemma in terms of pitch preparation for the Ahmedabad Test.
Vettori heaped praise on Leone
Spin coach Daniel Vettori hailed Nathan Lyon’s brilliant bowling in the Test series. He said, ‘In the first test we talked about site spin. Because red soil has more benefits. Todd Murphy and Nathan Lyon did just that. Then I realized that I saw Ashwin bowling over and over. Then we tried to bowl like him. Such bowling is enough for Nath. He also obtained preliminary results. His real skill is coming out. He still needs to bowl in the same style.
Daniel Vettori also said, ‘Nathan Lyon sometimes bowls badly. He succeeded in putting pressure on the batsmen due to his bowling skills. You think the batsman knows which ball is coming. But they cannot face it. As he bowls well, it is difficult for the batsmen to face him. We saw him perform at his best in the indoor test.
A successful bowler of the Australia team
Nathan Lyon is Australia’s most successful bowler in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He took 19 wickets in this series. His best performance was 8 for 64 runs. His victory left India in a quandary as to how to prepare the Ahmedabad pitch. Nathan Lyon took 5 wickets twice and 10 wickets once in this Test series. Australia has once again pinned its hopes on this star bowler in the Ahmedabad Test. On the other hand, from India’s perspective, Nathan Lyon’s bite needs to be found.
