Nathan Lyon Heavily Slammed By Fans On Twitter For Missing The Crucial Run Out


Nathan Lyon Heavily Slammed By Fans On Twitter For Missing The Crucial Run Out

The ongoing Ashes series between England and Australia has been leveled after England won the third test match. The first test match was won by Australia while the second test match was a draw.

The Australian fans are not able to believe that their team has lost because almost all the time, it was in a strong position. Australia was going great in the test match as England was all out for a meager total of 67 runs in their first innings and in the second innings, the English players were given a target of 359 runs which seemed to be an impossible task for them.

However, Ben Stokes changed everything with his superb knock of 135 runs and he was also supported well by Jonny Bairstow as well as Jack Leach. Credit can’t be taken from Ben Stokes but the truth is that Australian players too committed some unforgivable mistakes in the third test match.

Who can forget the moment when Australia needed only one wicket to win the match and Nathan Lyon missed the simple chance of getting Leach run out. The only thing that Nathan was needed to do was to hit the bails as the throw was in hands and Leach was around 2 feet away from the crease. But Nathan Lyon was so nervous under pressure that he fumbled and a golden opportunity was lost.

On the very next ball, Ben Stokes was hit on the pads, an lbw appeal was made but the umpire didn’t agree. However, it was seen in the replays that Ben was out but Australia was not able to take DRS as their options were already exhausted.

The Australian cricket fans slammed Nathan Lyon for his fumble heavily on the micro-blogging site Twitter and here are some of the selected reactions:
