Australian spin bowler Nathan Lyon said Friday his work with Muttiah Muralitharan has been immensely helpful and can just greatly improve the situation bowler.

The world`s leading Test wicket taker has been helping Lyon in Colombo and has consented to join the Australian training group all the more formally for their arrangement against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates in October.

Muralitharan has invested time with Lyon working on a bowling variation that would turn in the opposite direction to his regular delivery.

It is purportedly a variety of the “carrom” ball, utilized recently by India`s Ravichandran Ashwin, which could be flicked from the front of the hand to go straight on yet can turn like a leg soften up the right conditions.

Lyon said while his time in Sri Lanka had been exceptionally valuable, the new delivery was still a work in advancement and was not exclusively the consequence of investing time under Muralitharan`s tutelage.

“It wasn`t like I shook into Colombo, worked with Murali and abruptly I could bowl another ball,” he told correspondents in Brisbane.

“I`ve been working with John Davison (Australian spin bowling coach) for some time now simply to nut out a couple of distinctive varieties.”

The 26-year-old said he plans to go for the delivery when he lines up for Australia A in a tour match against India A, beginning in Brisbane on Sunday.

Muralitharan will keep on living up to expectations with Lyon up to and all through the tour against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates.

“To have Murali ready for the UAE is fabulous,” said Lyon.

“I learnt some things over there and it`s awesome to be around one of the greats of the game.”

The Sri Lankan expert has been brimming with recognition for Lyon, who has secured himself as Australia`s head spinner and as of late surpassed the point of reference of 100 Test wickets.

Pakistan have been compelled to play their home arrangement at nonpartisan venues, for example, the UAE, since activists assaulted the Sri Lankan group in Lahore in 2009.
