Lyon to be key Oz bowler to help team fight back in third Test against Windies

   Apr 24, 11:19 am

Dominica (West Indies), Apr 24(ANI): Australian spinner Nathan Lyon will be the key bowler to help his team fight their way back into the third Test after their batsmen struggled to tackle the West Indies’ spinners.

"He works hard at his game, he knows his game and when he's on he's on. He's a very confident fella and we're looking forward to him out there tomorrow," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted opener David Warner, as saying.

"I don't think it's a wicket that's going to go up and down like it did in Barbados and Trinidad, I think the spin will come into play, as we saw with Shillingford, and [we have] Nathan Lyon in our [attack] and hopefully me and Michael might get a run as well,” Warner added.

Lyon rebounded from an ordinary first Test with a five-wicket haul in Port of Spain last week and the Australians will be looking for him to make a similar impact in Dominica, particularly after they left out Michael Beer from the XI in favour of paceman Mitchell Starc.

The Australians, who are 7-212 at stumps, are aiming for a first-innings total in excess of 250 in the tricky conditions. (ANI)
