Lyon: I’m not going to change my plan

Australia

Ahead of the historic day/night Test, Australia spinner Nathan Lyon says the pink ball is an advantage to the slow bowlers as the batsman cannot see the seam.

Lyon will be part of the Aussies' bowling attack when they take on New Zealand in the third and final Test at the Adelaide Oval, starting on 27 November.

As an offspinner , Lyon says he will not change things much from when bowls in a Test match with a red ball.

Lyon said: "(It's) perfect, batters can't see the seam. It's no different to me playing red ball, pink ball or white ball. I'm not going to change my plan. It's just about getting out there and executing and being consistent.

"I'm a big one not to mess around with Test cricket but it's going ahead. It's exciting times and I think it's already been sold out for day one and day two.

"So to play in front of a packed crowd at Adelaide is pretty special and I'm definitely looking forward to playing the pink-ball Test."
