Sydney Thunder have the Big Bash League wobbles after slumping to their third successive loss, a 30-run defeat to Perth Scorchers at Spotless Stadium on Thursday night.
Australia will be looking for quick early wickets on day four of the third Test against West Indies on Wednesday in an attempt to force a result in the rain-affected SCG Test.
Nathan Lyon’s irresistible performances with red and white ball this summer have him in line to represent Australia at the Twenty20 World Cup in India later this year.
Australia’s decision to play two spinners for the first time in a home Test in 10 years is already paying dividends after the first day of the Third Test against West Indies at the SCG.
Teammate Kraigg Brathwaite didn’t want to talk about him, but Australian spinner Nathan Lyon was keen to give the under-siege West Indian a good ribbing, as Marlon Samuels’ summer to forget continued in comical fashion in the Third Test.
Peter Siddle will sit out the remainder of the Big Bash League in a bid to be fit for Australia’s two-Test tour of New Zealand.
