Nathan Lyon takes wicket on delivery intended for world-record attempt
Nathan Lyon has struck with his third ball of the Boxing Day Test.
Lyon has become a cult hero for cricket fans, possibly on account of wicketkeeper Matthew Wade’s signature call of ‘nice, Garry’.
Fans flocking to the MCG had intended to use Lyon’s third ball of the match to shout that catchphrase in unison.
As it happened, Lyon’s third ball indeed got the fans yelling.
The off-spinner picked up the wicket of Sami Aslam for nine with a ball that bounced sharply, clipped the outside edge and ballooning up to Steve Smith at slip.
