India will come back Very hard in 2nd test-Lehmann
Darren Lehmann, the Australian Coach, has expected India will strike back in the next 3 Tests after his teamt controlled to stun the hosts within the first Test in Pune by 333 runs. It was India’s first loss in a home Test after December 2012.
“I think the way we played, we deserved to win through that much at the quit,” Lehmann stated on Sunday. “But they may be a first-rate side and the task for our organization is to lower back that performance up in Bangalore. We’re no longer getting too some distance in advance of ourselves. India are a first-class side, especially at home I suppose that is the 1st Test they have lost in 20 Test matches so they may come back quite hard.”
Contrary to the predictions made with the aid of maximum experts, Australia’s spin duo of Steve O’Keefe and Nathan Lyon outshone their Indian opposite numbers with the former selecting up a 12-wicket haul. Lehmann determined similarities between O’Keefe’s performance and Mitchell Johnson’s menacing spell in Adelaide in opposition to England in the 2013-14 Ashes collection. Johnson ripped through England’s batting lineup in that Test to grow to be with a seven-wicket haul that helped Australia win through 218 runs.
“An extraordinary spell – I haven’t visible that for the reason that Mitchell Johnson inside the Ashes with England in Adelaide when he tore them aside,” Lehmann found. “We took 7 for 11 and that manifestly became the sport. Twelve-for, 6 for 35 in each innings is quite unique. You constantly wish do not you, as a participant.”
The Australian coach become thrilled with the efforts of Lyon as nicely even though it changed into O’Keefe who chipped away with the wickets. Lyon turned into underneath pressure from several quarters after failing to make an effect in Sri Lanka last yr. “I without a doubt thought Nathan Lyon bowled nicely, to be perfectly honest,” he stated. “Nathan’s been below strain from a lot of sources at some stage in the subcontinent, myself included.He become amazing on this recreation. He turned into brilliant, so both spinners did the process, however Steven turned into extremely good getting the rewards.”
“He hadn’t actually hit the ball that nicely in our lead-up, but for a few cause while he gets out inside the center, he is aware of exactly what he desires to do and the way he wants to do it,” Lehmann stated. “So for a 20-yr-old that’s quite unique. I assume he will returned that up in Bangalore. For him to come out, obviously a crook here and there, and to bat in unique positions and had a clean plan, specially in the 2nd innings, the way he wanted to head about it. That’s accurate for a younger man to have that perception into the sport so early.”
