Nathan Lyon will be an enormous menace for India, tells Ricky Ponting

The ex-skipper of Australia, Ricky Ponting states that the Australian spinner, Nathan Lyon has earned a reward as he successfully delivered wide of the crease as well as the angle he generates might be a huge danger for the visitors across all four games. 

The Australian spinner, Nathan Lyon has managed to acquire one wicket by conceding 68 runs in 21 overs on the very initial day of the test series. 

The ex-skipper of Australia stated that Lyon is nothing less than any other spinner in terms of accomplishment when talking about all the games against the Indians through so many years. Lyon has successfully dismissed the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli in test games more than any other bowler in the past. 


He continued by saying that Nathan Lyon even brought discomfort to the Indian batsman, Cheteshwar Pujara several times in the current game. 

Whenever a right-handed batsman enters the field to bat against Lyon, the ball spins so much that when there are fielders around the bat, they expect the batsman to get out at each bowl. 

He said that Nathan Lyon generates so much pressure on batsmen as he doesn’t bowl bad balls very often. And this is the sole reason why he’ll be an enormous menace for the Indians.

As he generates the angle from broad and angle around in, that becomes tough for the batsman as it challenges the inner edge of the bat while he gets it out slightly off the crease, it creates an opportunity at slip to catch and dismiss the respective batsman. 

Ponting speculates that minor adjustments creates a clump of variation.

He stated that It fetches a bat-pad off-side hitch in the game and in case the bowler receives additional leap, like Pujara’s dismissal, the bowler may nonetheless receive the dismissal at leg slip. Tiny adjustments, it implies to the adjustment of around 4-6″, however, it is extremely effective.
