That's a bit harsh, given our test spinners couldn't stick it on a length in India. I think the Australian spinners are doing the job England needed to squeeze India.
Ali, Dawson and Ansari where batting all rounders. Rashid was wild but bagged a few.

If the pitches where like this Ali would outbowl Lyon everyday of the week

Given the state of spin bowling for England since swann retired if you genuinely dont think he would be first choice for our team you cannot be thinking straight

I'd play with 10 than have Lyon  in my side

Haha 😂 didn't realise you were a straight up troll. Control, revs, wickets.  Can't ask more from a spinner than that.

It's not a bad score till both teams bat.... Let's see the magic of Ashwin and Jadeja on this wicket
You're right, Aussies need as many as we can get in this first dig. balls starting to roll in this first over.

Australia have got their tactics right as well. You need finger spinners in India and a good left armed finger spinner. They are staying patient and concentrating on bowling tightly, not getting carried away with the spin. Why the England brains trust picked two offies and a leggy, then left our best left arm finger spinner at home I'll never know.

Ha Ha what a clown, admitting you are wrong would be much easier than continuing to show your lack of knowledge.
Lyon is a bum, fluked a career instead of sticking to his job of being a bin man

Even as a seasoned convict basher myself

Lyon would walk into our team as 1st choice spinner as ours are poor

They won't catch us this time! Not this time! They haven't spotted us! No, they're all snoring in their bunks! Or, you know what? They're drinking at the bar, celebrating our sinking! Not yet, my friends. Not yet!

Of the current left armers its got to be samit patel. By miles and miles!

You must be the troll formerly known as Gerry SA. Surely, it must be true.
