Australia’s ace spinner Nathan Lyon has referred to as on Indian group to ‘cease complaining’ about harsher restrictions for the fourth Test in Brisbane and ‘suck it up and get on with it’.
“I know there are a few people from both squads who have been in a bubble for close to six months now but in my eyes it is a very small sacrifice for us to go out there and play the game we love and put a lot of smiles on a lot of people’s faces around the world,” stated Lyon whereas talking to the media on Monday morning.
“In my eyes, we just have to suck it up, get out there and get on with it and play for our respective countries and make sure we are playing a really competitive brand of cricket.”
There have been reviews over the previous couple of days of the Indian group not keen to journey to Brisbane for the fourth Test after the third Test in Sydney in view of the harsher restrictions there which can drive gamers to keep in hotel-ground-hotel routine.
The Indian group’s reported reluctance has come instantly after Cricket Australia introduced that 5 India Test squad members – Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Navdeep Saini, Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw, are being investigated for alleged breach of quarantine protocols throughout a dine-out in a Melbourne restaurant. The 5 have been put in isolation, an announcement from Cricket Australia stated.
Lyon, who will likely be enjoying his a hundredth Test on the Gabba in Brisbane, stated that individuals (the 5 India gamers who allegedly breached the protocols) make errors however it is healthier to settle for it, depart the matter behind and focus on following the schedule and not blow the problem out of proportion.
“It (the restrictions) has all been okay in my eyes. As I said before, we just need to suck it up and get on with it. People make mistakes we get that but it is just making sure that we go out there and try and make sure that we prepare the best way we can for the Test match and not looking to anything else that media is blowing up at all or anything like that,” stated Lyon, who has performed 98 Tests and is six wanting 400 Test wickets.
“We simply have to hear to the recommendation of our medical individuals and right here in Cricket Australia we’re very fortunate that we now have acquired a tremendous medical group however to be sincere, allow us to simply suck it up, get on with it and cease complaining.
Asked if he’s getting ready a Plan B in case the fourth Test will get shifted from Gabba in Brisbane to Sydney, the offie stated that he’s sticking to Plan A as he hasn’t heard something in regards to the fourth Test being moved from Brisbane.
ace100% going and enjoying in Brisbane and sticking with Plan A. We have heard nothing as gamers. Obviously, we now have to journey to Sydney at this time, then rip in there, hopefully get the consequence up there we’re after and straight after that fly to Brisbane. We all understand how a lot we love enjoying at Gabba and we all know our consequence there as effectively with our file.”
“I am not really worried about what is being reported. For us, it is about worrying about what we can control and the information that we are receiving from the people in Cricket Australia and our medical people is just about us making sure that we are very well prepared for the Sydney test. Everyone keeps talking about the Gabba Test match but there’s a massive Test match in just a couple of days at the SCG (Sydney Cricket Ground) and that’s where all our focus is 100 per cent at. So we just have to get on with it. That is my honest opinion.”
