Bangalore Royal Challengers Nathon Lyon, the primary bowler for Australia, will be under a lot of strain, according to wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik.

Nathan Lyon, a vital bowler for Australia in the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy, would be under a lot of strain, according to Royal Challengers Bangalore wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik.

In his impressive career to far, Nathan Lyon has taken 460 Test wickets and will be vying for more against India in the forthcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy. The off-spinner will benefit from the sub-continent surfaces and will want to give the Indian hitters a lot of trouble. In 2017, he was one of Australia’s most important bowlers.

Dinesh Karthik, a seasoned Indian wicketkeeper-batsman, discussed the pressure Nathan Lyon faces as Australia’s primary bowler. He stated: “In Lyon, they have a top-tier off-spinner. You must also realise that he will be under a great deal of strain given that he will be Australia’s primary bowler responsible for steering the ship in the right direction. One poor performance on his part may turn the tide of the Test match against Australia, which would be a lot of burden to bear.”

Karthik also mentioned how Shreyas Iyer dominated Nathan Lyon in a 2017 tour game. Added he, “In a CCI side game, Shreyas Iyer gave him a literal smack. Lyon will need to take a standing position when the pressure is on. His demeanour and legacy will be very much on display. Although India hasn’t been playing off-spin particularly well, these matches will be played in India, so we must have faith in our ability to play spin, which has long been a part of our legacy and ancestry.”

Australia selected four spinners for the Test series against India, but only Nathan Lyon is a proven veteran for the visitors while Mitchell Swepson, Ashton Agar, and Todd Murphy lack significant Test cricket experience.
