Former India cricket cricketer and famous cricket commentator Akash Chopra believes that Australia's senior star spin bowler Nathan Lyon is more impressive than Indian bowler Ravichandran Ashwin in the bowling test. Actually, during a conversation with a cricket website, Akash Chopra said, "I would choose Nathan Lion, given the recent performance, because I like certain things in Nathan. First - his body action. He moves his body behind every ball, giving him a good bounce. He is not a readied spinner. He also bowls well under adverse conditions.
Chopra further said, "If you look at both bowling on Indian or spin friendly pitches, Ashwin Miles is ahead. He takes fast wickets. Consistency is seen in them. But Akash underlined that Nathan Lyon had an understanding of the Kookaburra ball. It is used in Australia and some other countries. He takes wickets on every kind of pitch. But Nathan Lyon bowls well on South Africa, England or Australian pitches.
