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.
