Australia’s best bowler of the day Nathan Lyon said that skipper Michael Clarke is feeling fit and will surely bat in the second innings.
Clarke retired hurt on 60 on the first day of the first Test due to chronic back pain but came out on day two and scored his 28th century, but was in total discomfort during his knock.
During the post-day conference, Lyon was quoted in saying:
“He’s very fit and will surely bat in the second innings. He’s taking it one day at a time and we are confident that he’ll feature in all the matches of the series.”
Lyon bowled beautifully on the third day of the first Test at Adelaide and picked up 2 wickets. His two victims were Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane. Both were important wickets as they looked well set for a big score.
Seeing the footmarks that have been created by the fast-bowlers, Lyon’s role would be very much important on day four to stop India from taking a lead.
