Clarke injury: Watch the Aussie skipper notch up a courageous century during the opening Test against India
Australia spinner Nathan Lyon says his heart skipped a beat when a brutal Mitchell Johnson bouncer hit India stand-in captain Virat Kohli in the first Test at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday.
With emotions still raw after the death of Phillip Hughes, there was immediate concern from the Australians after the short ball connected with the helmet of Kohli.
Lyon, who has on the field at the SCG when Hughes was felled, said the incident brought back bad memories for the players.
“Your heart skips a beat,” Lyon is quoted as saying by AAP.
“Especially for the four guys out there, I know I went to everyone just to ask if they were okay because it’s something that you don’t want to see again, when we were out there with Phil’s incident.
“And today that sound was pretty familiar. That is why we all ran in there quite quickly just to see if he was okay, that is the main thing.
“It’s something that you don’t want to see ever again, what we saw with Phil.”
