Australian spinner Nathan Lyon says he’s confident he’ll be fit to take on India in the Third Test that begins on Thursday.

Lyon suffered a split callus on his spinning finger during the Second Test loss to India at Bangalore and would be a huge loss to the side that will go into the match without pace spearhead Mitchell Starc.

Lyon (pictured) says the injury isn’t an uncommon one for a spinner and  he has no doubt that he’ll be ready for what is a vital match in Australias chances of a rare series victory in India.
