Nathan Lyon is all for Ahmedabad pitch as he hits out at the critics

Australia spinner Nathan Lyon said he is shocked to hear the criticism surrounding the Ahmedabad pitch. He went on to ask why these players did not speak up when teams were bundled up in seaming tracks. England’s former captains Michael Vaughan, Andrew Strauss, and Alastair Cook heavily criticized the pitch after England were bowled out 112 and 81 in the day-night Test match. But Lyon has lauded the pitch and the curator. He said teams play on seaming tracks and got bowled out for 47, 60 none of them spoke about the pitch. But when it starts spinning everyone seems to cry about it. He felt the match to be entertaining and is all for it. From day 1 the Motera pitch offered spin as the Test match ended inside two days making it the shortest completed Test to be played since 1935 as 28 of the 30 wickets were scalped by the spinners. Lyon, from being a pitch curator to one of the world’s best off-spinners has had a whirlwind of career graph. Lyon added saying that he was up all night watching the match and he thinks of bringing the Ahmedabad curator to SCG. India entered the Ahmedabad Test with 3 spinners while England’s playing XI only had Jack Leach with Root as a part-time spinner. Lyon pointed out England’s mistake was to go in with 4 seamers and that summarizes the match’s result.
