The Australian spin trio of Nathan Lyon, Doherty and Ashton Agar conceded 244 runs in 49 overs on Day One of their three-day match against India A. Xavier Doherty, who was their most successful bowler with three wickets, defended the performance of fellow left-arm spinner Ashton Agar, who was clobbered for 78 runs in 13 overs. "It was a step up in class for Ashton with three spinners down in the middle," Doherty said. "Probably, Ashton struggled more compared to us as he is the youngest in the group. It is a great learning experience for him. It is a great opportunity for him to bowl against class players."
Doherty said that Gautam Gambhir and Rohit Sharma had made it difficult for the spinners by attacking them.
