Melbourne: Australian player Nathan Lyon is one of the important players in his team. Leon confused Indian captain Virat Kohli and often took his wicket as well. But now in Virat’s absence, his target is on Rohit Sharma.
Leon’s special strategy for Rohit
Nathan Lyon described Rohit Sharma as one of the best players in world cricket and said his team would have the right strategy for this first Indian match.
Rohit Sharma did not play in the Limited Overseas, Adelaide Test and Melbourne Test due to injury. He is associated with the team for the last two matches.

Leon Lyon said in a virtual press conference: “ Rohit Sharma is surely one of the best players in the world right now, so it will be a big challenge for our bowlers, but we will find a way out. We like to question ourselves ”.
He said: “ It will be interesting to see who is replaced by Rohit in the Indian squad. But we will have a strategy for Rohit and we hope to be able to dominate him at the start ”.
Rohit Sharma has been named India’s vice-captain for the last two tests.
Leon is ready to challenge Rahane
Two tests away from his 100th Test, Leon Lyon said that Indian captain Ajinkya Rahane’s strength is that he does not engage in speeches or discussions with the opposing team’s bowlers on the field.
He said: “ He (Rahane) is definitely a world class drummer so that helps in everything. He is patient with the folds and is never disappointed.

Nathan Lyon said: “He does not engage in any slander or conversation on the pitch. He is a very calm and relaxed drummer. He is currently the captain of the Indian team and hopefully in the Sydney test we are going to hit the ground with the right strategy for him.
Leon Lyon said he would come up with a different strategy for Rahane, who scored a winning round of 112 points in the Melbourne test.
He said: “ Rahane faced my balls well in Melbourne so I know I have to find a different strategy for him and for other players. I am ready for it ”.
