    Ashley Mallett on Australia's Spinners

    A really good read I thought, speaks a lot of sense.

    I would have this guy working with Lyon asap.I agree Lyon has the potential to be a world class performer.Some fans are talking about finding a long term option, I reckon we have already found one and he"s Lyon.

    Its amazing how many former Australian cricketers turn out such good writers on the game. From Noble, to Fingleton, O'Reilly, Mallett etc there is an impressive line of insightful writers.

    Mallett's a good egg. Should be more involved at SACA but I believe he and Flipper had a blow-up years ago.
