Nathan Lyon helps put Australia on top in India

He started as a fast bowler when he first started playing professional cricket.

"So, Virat personally would want to be 100 per cent but if the team feels that he is a must-have for this deciding game, the team will have to convince him that, look you might be 40, 50, or whatever per cent fit, we want you".

India's top-order batted resolutely to defy a relentless bowling attack on the second day of the decisive fourth and final Test against Australia on Sunday. Australia looked in vast trouble but Peter Handscomb and Shaun Marsh salvaged a draw. It is hard for a wrist spinner to bowl chinaman. Something that I experienced in Ranchi, when you have reactive movements, the magnitude of your injury comes out. Josh Hazlewood and O'Keefe chipped in with one wicket each. If the batsmen can read you off the pitch, that reduces the threat. I did exactly what he (Warne) told me to do. Pat cummins impressed with his 3 wickets, specially today as he sent back both set Indian batsmen Ravindra Jadeja and Saha.

Rahul's belligerence ended when he tried to hook a bouncer from Cummins but ended up offering a simple catch to David Warner in the covers. Australia entered the Lunch break for the loss of just one wicket with the Australian skipper and his deputy well-set at the crease. In 67 Tests, Lyon has 247 wickets.

He would be the first choice for any captain as Pujara never plays for himself.

The Republican president offered no evidence for the allegation, which an Obama spokesman said was "simply false". Trump said there would be "some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks".

Handscomb was the next in the firing line as Kuldeep cleaned him up sparking wild celebrations.

"I know we probably left a few runs out there but to have India six down for 240-odd after a pretty a good day on the field - [I am] quite happy to be honest". "I only watch his videos and it was a dream-come-true when I met him", said Kuldeep. In a Test match.

Speaking exclusively from South Africa, he said, "I am always excited to see wrist spinner bowl and particularly left arm chinaman bowlers". It was a new thing, but then I enhanced my skills further.

As Lyon said, the Dharamsala wicket is much like the Bengaluru wicket where India won by 75 runs. There is a little bit of carry on this surface, the ball is thudding into the wicket keeper's gloves. Obviously, no one could have imagined that Yadav would take four wickets and shine on debut, but keeping a secret this well from the world's prying eyes is nothing short of a magic trick. Aussie bowlers haven't made it easy.

Hazlewood was also tradesman-like with figures of 1-40 from 18 overs of toil, but it was Cummins' rampaging performance in only his second Test match back in six years which really turned heads.
