Melbourne: Australian spinner Nathan Lyon has said that Team India Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara is ready for some more tactics and is confident of getting caught in their trap. Despite tying Pujara in the first Test, he said his team was in danger from him in the rest of the series. Lyon believes there are players in the Indian team who can make up for the deficit of Virat Kohli who went home. The Boxing Day Test kicks off in Melbourne on December 26.
Recently Nathan Lyon said … ‘I can’t reveal team secrets. But we will face a big challenge in the rest of the series with world class batsman Cheteshwar Pujara. We discussed tying him up before the series. Some plans in the Adelaide Test have worked towards that. A few more strategies are ready. Even if he is confident that he will be trapped in our trap if he gets into the ring. Challenging the best player in the world is fun. Pujara is such a player. ‘
Kohlisena lost the Day / Night Test against the Pink Ball in Adelaide. Cheteshwar Pujara (43) was dismissed by Nathan Lyon at the crease in the first innings. Pujara, who played 8 balls in the second innings, was ducked by Pat Cummins. With the return of Virat Kohli, the responsibility on seniors like Ajinkya Rahane and Pujara has increased. They definitely need to excel now.
Lyon believes there are players in the Indian team who can make up for the deficit of Virat Kohli who went home. ‘The names of the players who will replace Virat Kohli are Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara. Apart from Wiley, Lokesh Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are also in the squad. So I think that deficit will not appear. We need to be better prepared for the tough challenge ahead in the Boxing Day Test, ”said Aussie spinner Nathan Lyon. Team India trailed 0-1 in the ongoing Test series against Australia.
“I do not agree with Kohli’s decision. Will Sehwag replace Virat?”
