Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly is in all praise for the spin duo Nathan Lyon and Steve O’Keefe, after both wrecked havoc against India in two matches so far.

Lyon in the second game picked up his career-best figures of eight for 50 while Steve O’Keefe spilt his magic with 12/70 in the first match. Riding at an expense of some great bowling, their spells looked much more devastating considering the reputation of Indian players against spin over the years.

In O’Keeffe’s case, Pune’s broken surface could have been an excuse for India, but, they were left hapless against Lyon’s magical spell on day one of the Bengaluru surface.

Sourav, who as a captain hosted Australia twice and cross paths with the best of all time, Shane Warne believes he hasn’t seen two spinners from a touring country baffling Indian batsman with such say.

During Ganguly the launch of a cricket academy by former Bengal medium pacer Shib Sankar Paul, he observed what all is going wrong for the Indian team.

“I have never seen two spinners putting so much pressure from both ends before for Australia. They are bowling really well.”

India under Virat Kohli is yet to lose a series, both at home and outside it, and much before the highly anticipated tour started, Dada predicted a 4-0 scoreline, which by now doesn’t seem to appear at any cost.
