Is Nathan Lyon Australia's Amit Mishra

My first look of Lyon, and I think to myself, this kid looks a lot like Mishra – the obvious similarity is the vanishing hair. But there’s also this kidlike smallness about him. Then there’s this small coincidence that they both took five on debut. But what most will overlook is that both players remained not-out for no-score in their first test innings.

Both players will win their first test. I won’t be surprised if Dhoni overshadows Lyon, as he did Mishra, three years’ ago.  

Yesterday, Dhoni, once again, did Mishra in. This after he looked like the only Indian (other than Dravid) who could bat at The Oval. This after 2-19 vs. Leister in a T20.

Relax Bhajji, with MS by your side, no spinner will be allowed to make it large on this tour – the one-dayers will see both Ashwin and Mishra being teased on selection, both could end up playing two games each, if not less.

Lyon might get a run for his money from Ponting. Did you see him bowl yesterday ? It was quite a stunning sight.

Also, we appeared to have gone missing from your blogroll. Can we rectify that guys ? is us!

Well I think Lyon is a good bowler and Australia have at last found a good off-spinner after Nathan Hauritz as he had been out from the team from the last year.Spin bowling have always been a problem for the Aussies since the great leg spinner Shane Warne retired.Let's hope that Australia have found their right sinner for them.
