Lyon labels Proteas' Peterson as world-class spinner

Johannesburg, Feb 7 : Australian spinner Nathan Lyon has labelled his South African counterpart Robin Peterson a world-class spinner ahead of their three-match Test series, starting on February 12.


Peterson's role as the No.1 spinner in the South African setup followed the dropping of Imran Tahir for the upcoming series.

Lyon said Robin Peterson is a world-class spinner, and added that he's a Test match spinner; if he is playing Test match cricket he must be doing something right.

He further said Australians are not going to underestimate him, as he is a great player, Sport24 reports.

Lyon also said that he would be contented to let Australian pacers steal the headlines.

The pitches in South Africa are considered more suitable to quick bowling, but Lyon pointed out he could do well if there was good bounce off the wicket.
