Australia's star-studded pace attack have put spinner Nathan Lyon on notice - brace yourself for a big workload under the scorching Perth sun.
Perth is set to swelter through an intense heat wave during the upcoming day-night Test against New Zealand at Optus Stadium, with forecast tops of 39, 40, and 41 degrees being forecast for the first three days.
An expected juicy deck that could end up featuring plenty of cracks has left Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, and Pat Cummins licking their lips.
But the pace trio will also need to be carefully managed in the heat.
This is where Lyon enters the equation.
The veteran spinner will be heavily relied upon if NZ's batsmen dig in, and the 32-year-old will embrace the extra work load if it comes his way.
In fact, Australia's pace attack have already told him to be ready for it.
"They tell me to warm up and bowl from one end when it's about 40 degrees so they can bowl three-over spells," Lyon said with a laugh.
"There's a bit of banter flying about on the WhatsApp groups. It should be a great wicket.
"I always prepare the normal way, to bowl as many overs as I'm required to do.
"It's just one of those ones that if the boys are bowling well in partnerships, then hopefully we'll get the job done as a bowling squad and take 20 wickets."
So is the expected Perth heat a legitimate worry for Australia?
"This is nothing compared to Bangladesh," Lyon said with a smile.
The emergence of Marnus Labuschagne as a genuine spin option will also help ease the load on the other bowlers.
Labuschagne burst back onto the Test scene as a concussion replacement for Steve Smith during the recent Ashes series.
The 25-year-old has starred with the bat since then, but has been a handy option with his legspin.
Labuschagne failed to take a wicket in the 2-0 series win against Pakistan, but Lyon feels the emerging star has the potential to play as a frontline spinner on a deck like the SCG.
"I'm a big fan of Marnus," Lyon said.
"His cricket has improved out of sight over the last 12 months.
"His leg spin and the versatility of his bowling is vital. It provides a really well-rounded bowling attack with three quicks and myself and Marnus if required."
Lyon has fond memories of Optus Stadium after snaring hauls of 5-67 and 3-39 against India in the only previous Test there - a 146-run win to Australia.
