Nathan Lyon burns toast, causes 30-minute delay in Australian first-class match

15 Novembre 2017

On Wednesday, Australian Test spinner Nathan Lyon had everyone in a bit of a tizz after he set off the fire alarm in a domestic four-day match between New South Wales and Queensland.

Umpires suspended play at the Allan Border Field with the whole of the Stuart Law Stand, the dressing room for both teams, the scorers and the media, according to an article on Cricket Australia's website (cricket.com.au).

"[The toast] popped up first and I wasn't happy so I put it back down and I got carried away watching the cricket", Lyon said.

"It happens every second week (at home), I reckon".

Lyon somehow saw the amusing side of it and said that Australian skipper Steven Smith has agreed to foot the bill for calling in the two fire-trucks.

"There's a first for everything.I was getting a bit bored in the changerooms".

It is not the first time that in recent years evacuation had cause play to be halted.

New South Wales were well-poised at 110/4 with only 18 runs needed to win, and eventually won the match by 6 wickets once play resumed. It later turned out, though, that the fire alarm had a rather comical story to it.

Two fire trucks were brought into the ground and Lyon saw the funnier side of it. "Steve Smith already said he's going to cover it (the fire truck call-out fee)", he quipped.
