Nathan Lyon’s Coach John Davison Says Team Cause Top Priority
Australia off-spinner Nathan Lyon’s last two victims in India’s first innings came off consecutive deliveries when Ishant Sharma followed Lokesh Rahul on Day One of the second India vs Australia Test in Bangalore.
All eyes will now be on Nathan Lyon’s first delivery in India’s second innings.
His personal coach in Australia, John Davison will be glued to his TV set today to see if his ward grabs the hat-trick wicket. “If Nathan gets the hat-trick, I am sure Damien Fleming would welcome another member to the hat-trick club,” said Davison, who played 32 ODIs and five T20s for Canada before moving to Australia.
“I’m sure Nathan is not focussed on the hat-trick. His number one priority will be to contribute to the team’s cause. Individual milestones are a bonus. My advice to him would be to make no extra effort (for the first ball in the second innings), but bowl your best ball. He is a team man, modest, generous, caring and hard-working,” added Queensland-based Davison.
Lyon was recently quoted by cricket.com.au as saying, “He’s (Davison) someone I trust very highly…he’s one guy who is very handy to have in my corner.”
