Australian star spinner Nathan Lyon revealed that he learns from Ravichandran Ashwin when they tour India. Hailing Ashwin as world-class, Lyon said that his Indian counterpart has a lot of variations. <p></p> <p></p>"I think Ashwin is a world class bowler. I have watched him a lot especially when I have gone over to tour India and the subcontinent to try and learn from him. But he is a very cagey bowler. He has got a lot of variations, the way he changes his pace," said Lyon. <p></p> <p></p>"He is a very talented bowler. That's for sure. We are similar in a way. We are different as well. I can't compare myself to him. I think his record speaks for his own. So yeah, hats off to him," he added. <p></p> <p></p>Both the spinners have more than 350 wickets to their name and continue to find ways to pick wickets. <p></p> <p></p>Earlier during the first Test, Ashwin had also praised Lyon and said that they are two different bowlers. <p></p> <p></p>Lyon would be high-on-confidence ahead of the Boxing Day Test having taken a 1-0 lead at Adelaide. A lot would be expected from the veteran offie when he comes up against the likes of the Indian stars - who are known to be good spinners against spin bowling. <p></p> <p></p>Australia, who won the first Test by eight wickets at the Adelaide Oval, will look to extend their lead in the ongoing four-match series when they next face India in the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. <p></p> <p></p>The Boxing Day Test starts on December 26. With Sydney reeling under the Coronavirus threat, it is likely that MCG hosts the third Test as well.
