No matter how the wicket is they are always ready to smash their opponents with their speed and aggression. And this has been happening till to date until Steven Smith has opened the innings with a spinner against Bangladesh in the second and last Test in Chittagong.
It should be mentioned that they are obliged to play with one extra spinner after the result in Mirpur and thus this time they have come out with just one seamer, Pat Cummins and three spinners.
Though they have one medium Pacer in hand. However, the main fact is the Aussies have started their innings with a spinner after long 79 years.
Nathan Lyon started from the Media end along with pacer Pat Cummins and surprised the whole cricket world along with the commentators present in the occasion. Everyone had one question in mind that what actually happened with their plans that they had to start with a spinner after such a long time!
Last time in 1938 Bill and Railey started the innings from both the ends; in the first day at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon have proceeded to open the innings bowling for Australia. This was absolutely a stunning scene!
The people of 70-90’s were left in a shocking state that this Australian state who starts with a seaming attack has made a start with their spinner.
