We panicked in India and saw what happened: Nathan Lyon ahead of WTC final and Ashes | Cricket News

MELBOURNE: Australia’s first spinner Nathan Lyons doesn’t want his team to panic in the next one Ashes as he did during the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in India earlier this year.
The Australians lost the series in India 1-2. A classic example of their panic was their tactic against Indian spinners in the Delhi Test where most batters fell to sweeping on a rank spinner.
Before the Ashes from June 16, India and Australia will fight for the World Trials Championship trophy with the final scheduled for the Oval from June 7.
“We shouldn’t panic anyway. We panicked in India and we saw what happened. If we can learn from this experience and play in our own way and with our brand, we will be fine,” said Lyon at the AAP.

England have redefined Test cricket with their ultra-aggressive style of play, winning 10 of their 12 Tests over the past year.
“You look at the way they played against New Zealand, South Africa and Pakistan, they managed to force the opposition to panic.
“We just have to worry about ourselves. Controlling what we can control and worrying about what’s in our garden and not worrying about what they’re doing. If we make sure we have really good plans and stick to them, we’ll be fine.”
He said he would not change his tactics against the England batters who would have to take an attacking approach against both spinners and faster bowlers.
“I’m not buying any of this. It’s just us. We have to worry about ourselves. We’ll be really well planned. And with Pat [Cummins] and Smithy in the lead, I think we’ll be in very good shape.
“I went bowling with Mitch [Starc] and Pat over the past two weeks, our preparation is going very well. We don’t accept that they have to do it against Australian bowlers. We continue to nail our process and worry about ourselves,” he added.
