Australia’s batsmen aren’t chokers: Lyon

Ranchi: Nathan Lyon has shot down suggestions that Australia’s batsmen are chokers.

The tourists missed a golden chance to level their five-match series against India in Nagpur, where the hosts were bowled out for 250 on a dry deck that produced a low-scoring game.

Australia were well placed in their chase at 0-83, then again at 5-218, but collapses of 4-49 and 5-24 ruined their hopes of victory in the final-over thriller.

“We’re playing against one of the best sides in the world and choke is a pretty strong word,” Lyon said, when it was put to him that Australia choked under pressure.
