India vs Australia: Michael Vaughan identifies Nathan Lyon as biggest threat for India

Written by Vipin Darwade

Former England captain Michael Vaughan has said that he believes Australia will clinch the ongoing Test series against India and off-spinner Nathan Lyon will be the difference between the two sides.

Lyon picked up the man of the match award in Perth where he claimed 8 Indian wickets on a surface which was conducive for the seam bowlers.

“Final thought as I leave Aussie … Australia will Win the series … Lyon is going to prove to be the difference … #AUSvIND … Anyway back to the cold … See you all down under in early jan @FoxCricket” he wrote on his twitter handle.

Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly too believes that India need a better plan against Lyon and that the batsmen need to approach him with a more aggressive mindset.

“They have shown him too much respect by defending a lot of deliveries outside the off-stump. Instead, I feel they should attack him more and look to build towards at least a total in excess of 300-350,” Ganguly told India TV.
