But in the past week Nathan Lyon and Steve O’ Keefe have shown the world that gone are the days when Indians used to dominate spin bowling.

While last week it was Keefe, today it was the guile of Lyon that ripped apart the Indian batting unit. Sublime presentation of the seam, multiple revolutions on the ball and some reckless shot making on the part of the Indian batsmen ensured that India were once again pegged back in this series. You could blame it on fatigue but then that would just be a lame excuse to cover up the incompetency of the Indian batsmen.

Here is how the world reacted to Lyon’s heroics:
