Lion prepared by watching Ashwin’s video
New Delhi. A 4-match Test series is being played between India and Australia (IND v AUS) under the Border Gavaskar Trophy. Team India is ahead 1-0 in the series by winning the Nagpur Test match. In the first Test match, India crushed the Kangaroos by an innings and 132 runs on the third day itself. The second Test match of the series will be played from Friday (February 17) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. The Kangaroo team will land on the Ferozeshah Kotla ground with the intention of retaliating. Before the second Test, Australia’s experienced off-spinner Nathan Lyon has revealed that his wife has become angry because of R Ashwin.
In fact, something happened that before coming to India, Nathan Lyon was preparing for this important series by watching the video footage of Team India’s experienced spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. Lion says that he watched many video footage of Ashwin to trouble the Indian batter. He wanted to see his bowling variation from Ashwin’s video footage, how the Indian spinner brings variation in his bowling. So that he can also trouble the host batter on the tour of India.

‘R Ashwin is a different kind of bowler’
Talking to Star Sports, Nathan Lyon said, ‘I am not saying anything against Ashwin. I think Ashwin doesn’t need to prove himself as his record speaks for itself. To be honest, I am a completely different bowler than Ashwin. If you ask me, did I watch Ashwin’s videos before coming to India? The answer to this question will be yes.
‘I have a lot to learn from Ashwin’
In the Nagpur Test match, the Australian team fielded with two off-spin bowlers. Although debutant Todd Murphy impressed with his bowling, Lyon could not perform as expected in that Test. According to Lion, ‘I watched many videos of Ashwin for hours on the laptop before the India tour. This angered my wife as well. I have learned a lot by watching videos. I still have a lot to learn from Ashwin. The Australian team has not won any Test match in Delhi for the last 63 years. In such a situation, he will have to push his heels to win here.
