Chennai: Australian spinner Nathan Lyon wants the selectors to go with a two-spin attack against India in the upcoming four-Test series, which gets underway here on February 22.
“It will be big challenge for all of us in different conditions. We have seen India playing four spinners in the last Test against England. So hopefully we will have the opportunity to play two spinners for Australia,” Lyon said.
Lyon said he followed the English spinners during their exploits in the Test series here late last year.
“I certainly watched (Monty) Panesar and (Graeme) Swann. They bowled quite well. I did watch Swann very very closely and I hope to take in a few things and put the same method in practice against India,” Lyon said.
Australia have named four spinners in their 17-member squad, and Lyon said it would be a good challenge for them to get a berth in the Test squad.
