Brisbane: Australia's experienced spinner Nathan Lyon believes that the host team is not in a position to benefit from the injury of many players before the fourth Test. Leon said in a virtual press conference on Wednesday that I would not say that Australia is in a position of advantage. India are missing some big players but they have a very talented team. India will have to come up with a second-rate bowling attack due to the injury of fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah and spin bowler all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.
Leon said that we should worry about our preparation. There is no need to think about them. Gaba's pitch is compatible with our bowling and hopefully we will be able to perform well. Australia won 33 of the 55 Tests at this ground, played 13 draws and lost eight while one match was tied. Leon said that we have a great record here. The team is full of confidence and we know how to play positive cricket. But you cannot just trust him. We know how talented the Indian team is and also eager to win the series.
Defending Steve Smith, who is facing criticism for Rishabh Pant's attempt to erase the batting guard, he said, "I am really sad the way everyone is targeting him." He has won close to 80 Tests and has been doing so in every Test. We did not have to bat further in that Test but he was still thinking about batting. He has been doing this to help me. He was watching where I had to put the ball and what the speed should be.
