Yeah I'm not necessarily saying he's being milked, but he's trying to bowl that dream ball that rips through the gate too much (worked with Tendulkar eventually). Trying to bowl that all the time will make you bowl loose deliveries because you're going for broke. He needs to work on throwing 5 flights deliveries on a good area an over and look to slide that UFO ball/quicker ball for his wicket. Or ****, just bowl 6 balls in a decent spot would be a good start.Unfortunately, I don't really think it's the planning that's going awry; it's the execution. Lyon's not really been milked; he's just bowled too many loose balls after his first few overs every day. He actually plainly admitted himself when he first came into Test cricket that he was worried about the rigours of bowling long spells and backing up five days in a row because the Futures League doesn't even attempt to adequately prepare bowlers for that, particularly spinners, but I'm disappointed that he doesn't seem to be improving in that regard yet with more experience.
I still think he's comfortably Australia's best spinner and one of the best off break bowlers in the world, don't get me wrong, but I'm not sure they're going to be able to come up with a plan that hides the fact that he starts bowling a pie an over after his first spell every day. He needs to work on repeating his action under physical strain, and keeping concentration. The pressure will come then.
