Todd has settled in very well. We like having a spinner in the attack, it’s a different balance and, as you saw (on Sunday), at certain moments we had to act differently without Nathan Lyon at the other end, who we’re so used to, England coach Andrew McDonald was quoted by cricket.com.au.
It looked a bit chaotic at times, so we like having a rotational option in the attack.
Nathan Lyon suffered a significant calf tear on day two of the second Ashes Test. He was already seen on crutches the next day, but the 35-year-old stunned everyone when he walked to bat in the second inning of Australia.
He struck four balls in 13 overs and, along with Mitchell Starc, made a valuable 15-run pairing for the last wicket.
