Test of maturity for Kohli and Smith in Ranchi

A durable body has been central to Lyon's tenure, even to the point that other challengers for a spin berth have missed chances to replace him by dint of their own injuries.

The top 10 of the Player Rankings for Test Bowlers has remained unchanged but Sri Lanka all-rounder Dilruwan Perera has moved up three slots to 14th rank after his five wickets in the Galle Test while Bangladesh spinner Mehedi Hasan's six wickets have helped him gain four places to reach 36th rank.

Local officials did their best to control the latest pitch doctoring storm, trying in vain to restrict inspection of the pitch to the captain and coach.

A sore spinning finger from plenty of bowling is the sort of problem many a spinner has dealt with, and a problem all would like to have. While it has been easy to get lost in the detail of the accusations, the underlying fact is that Kohli and India got angry in Bengaluru.

"He said that we did it twice while he was out there (batting)".

As far as momentum goes, it is with India right now after Virat Kohli's side pulled off an impressive victory in the second Test in Bengaluru.

A hallmark of Lyon's work so far in this series has been the vast majority of his overs delivered from over the wicket to the right-handers.

"Try and build pressure, perhaps take wickets in different ways", said Smith. But it just really depends on the type of wicket.

"There was a decent break in between and we certainly don't want to sit and think about one issue all the time".
