2nd Test Australia vs India Perth: It was hilarious as Australian were looking to have some fun. Nathan Lyon was giving an interview during the lunch session when teammate Mitchell Starc walked in from behind and pulled his pants on live TV. Starc ran in from behind and pulled the shorts and ran off. Lyon looked a little embarrassed but handled t with utmost ease.
Here is the moment:
Lyon has been in emphatic form, he bagged eight wickets with the ball at Adelaide and also played a gritty knock with the bat in the second innings to delay India’s win. Starc, on the other hand, has been bowling fast but has not been picking the number of wickets he would have been expected to.
