Australian off-spinner Nathan Lyon has said that he is ready to step up in the absence of injured pace spearhead Mitchell Starc and recently retired Mitchell Johnson for the upcoming Test series against West Indies.
Whispering Death, White Lightning, Rawalpindi Express were few names given to erstwhile speed merchants, who always bayed for batsmen’s blood with their threatening pace. A deadly fast bowler always takes pride in knocking a batsman down with his menacing bowling.
Mitchell Starc’s belligerent burst at the Kiwi batsmen towards end of Day 3 at Perth was a thrilling sight. That phase of play will perhaps be etched forever in the minds of many. Starc, bowling with genuine pace and hostility, commanded the undivided attention of spectators at the stadium.
