Australia’s veteran fast bowler Mitchell Starc will not be able to play in the first Test match due to a finger injury, which has had a profound effect on Australia’s bowling edge.
After many days of preparation, rhetoric and claims, now the time has come for action. India and Australia The wait for the four-match series is over and the first Test match will start from Thursday, February 9 at Vidarbha Cricket Association’s stadium in Nagpur. Indian spinners will do wonders in this match, there is hardly any doubt about it, but Australian spinners will also be under watch. Especially Nathan Lyon is a big threat, but his danger has been reduced by one of his own teammates and this is to say of Sachin Tendulkar.
As expected, the talk has been around the spinners and the pitch before this series and the same will be seen during the match as well. Everyone knows about the ability of Indian spinners, but Australia’s spin attack is headed by experienced off-spinner Lion, who has shown his strength in India before. However, this time his impact was not much and the main reason for this is the absence of Mitchell Starc.
That’s why the effect of Lion will be less
Now it may be surprising to think how the absence of a pacer like Stark will affect a veteran off-spinner like Lion. But it will happen and master blaster Sachin Tendulkar has explained the main reason for this. Speaking to news agency PTI, Tendulkar said,
Lyon is a world-class bowler and becomes more effective when Starc plays as the right-handed batsman’s foot prints outside off stump. These things are very important in the match.
Lion’s Helper Stark
In fact, the left-arm pacer Stark bowls mostly over the wicket. Due to this, his footprints are made in the off-stump part of the right-handed batsman. Then when the off-spinner bowls from the other end, he can use the rough made from the footprints to turn the ball, and this usually plays a big role in troubling right-handed batsmen. Is.
now in this test stark Not going to play because his finger is hurt. Australia does not have any other left arm pacer. In such a situation, Lion will not get that advantage, which used to make him more deadly. However, the spinners are expected to get help in the Nagpur pitch and in such a situation the Lions will still remain a threat. After all, Lion has taken more than 450 wickets in Test cricket.
