Australia's offspinner Nathan Lyon came up with yet another fine spell against India in Perth yesterday. But he couldn't bowl a convincing line as it were to the media after Day Three action.

While speaking on the verbal exchanges between his captain Tim Paine and India skipper Virat Kohli, Lyon said. "I think Tim just asked him where he was going for dinner that's all. I've played enough cricket against Virat to know what he's like, and I'm not worried about what he's doing or what India's doing," Lyon told the media.

Earlier, the stump microphone picked Kohli having a go at Paine. "If he messes it up, it's 2-0," said Kohli after a loud appeal in the final over of the day. Paine responded by uttering, "You've got to bat first, big head."
