INDIA WILL BE BACK WITH A BANG IN THE SECOND TEST: LEHMANN

INDIA WILL BE BACK WITH A BANG IN THE SECOND TEST: LEHMANN

SPORTSLIBRO CRICKET- LATEST CRICKET NEWS

Lehmann the coach of the Australian cricket team has predicted that the team will come back hard on the next test and it will be pretty hard to stop them if necessary arrangements won’t be done

 

After India lost the first test by 333 runs and it was huge blow for the Indian team,  they will definitely try to come  back and seal up the next test

 

#FACTS
-It was India’s first loss in the home ground since December 2012

"I think the way we played, we deserved to win by that much at the end," Lehmann said on Sunday (February 26). "But they're a quality side and the challenge for our group is to back that performance up in Bangalore. We're not getting too far ahead of ourselves. India are a quality side, especially at home I think that's the first Test they've lost in 20 Test matches so they'll come back pretty hard."

As per the experts Steve Okeefe whom took 12 wickets in the last test will be a great loss for the Indian team


"An exceptional spell - I haven't seen that since Mitchell Johnson in the Ashes with England in Adelaide when he tore them apart," Lehmann observed. "We took 7 for 11 and that obviously turned the game. Twelve-for, 6 for 35 in both innings is pretty special. You always hope don't you, as a player."

 

 Lyon was under pressure from several quarters after failing to make an impact in Sri Lanka last year. "I actually thought Nathan Lyon bowled just as well, to be perfectly honest," he said. "Nathan's been under pressure from a lot of sources throughout the subcontinent, myself included. I thought he was outstanding in this game. He was brilliant, so both spinners did the job, but Steven was exceptional getting the rewards."

 

Matt Renshaw effort with the bat pretty commendable and it was the whole of the team that applauded for him for his performance for the squad


"He hadn't actually hit the ball that well in our lead-up, but for some reason when he gets out in the middle, he knows exactly what he wants to do and how he wants to do it," Lehmann revealed. "So for a 20-year-old that's pretty special. I think he'll back that up in Bangalore. For him to come out, obviously a bit crook here and there, and to bat in different positions and had a clear plan, especially in the second innings, the way he wanted to go about it. That's good for a young man to have that insight into the game so early."
