Australia had a pretty good chance to retain the run but in tense moments of the game, Nathan Lyon made an absolute blooper.

Australia required just 1 wicket to win while Jack Leach and Ben Stokes were attempting to save England from another loss. After Stokes attempted for a reverse-sweep shot, Jack Leach ran straight towards the 28-year-old all-rounder.

After the England spinner had run half-way down the 22 yards, Ben Stokes had suddenly asked him to return to the non-striker’s end, but Leach was a mile away from reaching the crease and when the return throw came, all Lyon had to do was pick the ball with his bare hands and hit the stumps.

But when the throw came, Lyon failed to do the basic thing and let the arch-rivals get away. However, in the next ball, Stokes was plumb leg before the wicket but unfortunately, Australia had no reviews left as they wasted all their reviews.

Matt Prior, who is the former England wicket-keeper took time to troll the Australia spinner after the latter criticised the former before the 2017-18 Ashes. However, as soon as Prior took a dig at Lyon, Australia’s legendary Shane Warne took him by surprise after the former Aussie leg spinner defended his team’s player in a string of tweets

Along with Matt Prior, English club cricketer Chris Adams also joined Matt Prior and started blasting the Australian media for not confessing the defeat gracefully.
