Australia spinner Nathan Lyon believes it will be no problem to adjust to playing without fans attending Virat Kohli, but jokingly said the India star would “try and restore the seats”.
The Coronavirus epidemic was followed by a one-day shutdown between Australia and New Zealand in March.
From October onwards, it is only when fans will be allowed to watch the sporting event again with Australia due to a welcoming India.
Kohli is famous for his ability to feed the public and Leon jokes that the batsman can return to the seats instead, though he is full of praise for the 6-year-old.
“He’s good enough to fit any scenario,” Offspinner said at a video conference Tuesday.
“I was actually talking to Mitch Stark the other day and we actually said that if we played without a crowd, it would be a surprise to try and get a seat restored.
“It’s going to be a little bit different, but I think big, he’s a superstar, he’ll be able to adapt to any climate we can play with.”
Although there is a lot of uncertainty about the series, Lyon says he is thrilled to welcome India, who will be on the 2018 2018 season. In the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
“I’m just excited about the possibility of India coming out. I think India will be here in Australia, as well as the Ashes, which brought about the biggest series.”
“Obviously they are a perfect powerhouse in the cricket world so it’s going to be great for them to keep these boys here crowd When playing in front of a crowd or in front of a crowd, it goes out of our control.
“We support and follow the advice of all the amazing medical people all over the world, so that it is beyond our control.
“I didn’t really think about playing in front of a crowd or a huge crowd, it’s about the opportunity to play against India again.
“Obviously the last time they came out here was the woodwork on us, but I think we are much stronger than the Australian cricket team at the moment and I am incredibly excited at the prospect of playing at home.”
