It’s just about doing the little one-percent things and not worrying too far about what India is doing,” mentioned Lyon throughout a digital press convention.

Over the past five years, my bowling has probably gone to a new level – I’m really confident with where my bowling is at at the moment,” he added.
Talking in regards to the problem of enjoying towards India, Lyon mentioned: “I have always enjoyed playing against India, they have some of the best players in the world against spin. I have always said that I want to challenge myself against the best players in the world against spin.

It would be a massive challenge for both the teams, we all know what happened last time India came here. I think it is pretty even, both are good sides, India and Australia are the top two sides in my eyes so it will be a massive challenge,” mentioned Lyon.
Talking about enjoying a Test match after virtually one yr, Lyon mentioned: “It has been a long time since we played Test cricket. It has been a challenging year for everyone, cannot wait to play some Test cricket, and especially competing against one of the strongest sides is the icing on the cake.
