Chennai: Australian spinner Nathan Lyon wants the selectors to go with a two-spin attack against India in the upcoming four-Test series, which gets underway with the opening Test here on February 22.

"It will be big challenge for all of us in different conditions. We have seen India playing four spinners in the last Test against England. So hopefully we will have the opportunity to play two spinners for Australia," Lyon said.

Lyon said he followed the English spinners during their exploits during the India-England Test series late last year and hoped to pick some tricks to tame the Indian batsmen.
