Ebene News – AU – ‘Best ever’: Nathan Lyon stuns cricket with never-before-seen feat

Nathan Lyon stunned the cricket world on Thursday with career-best Sheffield Shield figures in NSW v Victoria clash

Lyon admitted to being exhausted at the end of a draining summer test, after coming back in force at SCG to trap the best numbers of his career at Sheffield Shield

Lyon finished 6-21 in 16 bouts on Day 2 of the star-studded clash, having helped stave off an astonishing 8-48 collapse that led NSW to roll Victoria for 200

The off-spinner survived 14 balls as a night watchman as the Blues reached 1-22 at the stumps on Wednesday, having reduced Victoria’s lead to 13 points when the game ended late at 7 p.m. (AEDT) due to rain delays

The race will not bring Lyon any closer to their 400th scalp test, which remains at a wicket, nor any comfort after their 100th test marked Australia’s decisive loss to India

But it underscored the 33-year-old’s ability to quickly change the course of a game, which didn’t happen in his Gabba litmus test

“It’s been a pretty emotional week Especially having family there, challenge yourself to try to get them all up there with the borders closed,” Lyon told AAP

“An extremely exhausting week I had a few weeks off after Gabba’s test and a pretty hectic summer

“It was quite nice to come home and hang out, live a normal life away from cricket”

Lyon, who opted for family time with their two daughters before a stint in the Big Bash League with the Sydney Sixers, noted that India had outperformed their team in Brisbane

“The best thing about cricket is that you can learn from it every day we must continue to learn as a young Australian cricket team,” he said

The tweaker allowed Victoria to lose all the momentum generated by former Test batsman Nic Maddinson, hitting 77 balls, which lasted 80 balls and just 116 minutes

“That’s why he’s the GOAT He’s pretty good,” Victoria captain Peter Handscomb said of Lyon

Lyon quickly pulled out Matt Short, Will Sutherland, James Pattinson, Mitchell Perry and Jon Holland, having earlier found Marcus Harris’ advantage to claim the first wicket to drop on Thursday

“But it can happen on this type of wicket It’s a very good contest between the bat and the ball, so much better than the test wicket”

Handscomb hit 24, putting his side in the box seat to build a first inning lead far greater than 35 points, before his dismissal to Trent Copeland triggered a dramatic drop.

Jake Fraser-McGurk was next to go, suffering a sensational direct blow from Josh Hazlewood midway through

Fraser-McGurk was exhausted on the non-attacking side, having briefly considered a quick single before a scrambled Hazlewood recreated the magic trick he performed in this year’s SCG test

Sean Abbott, who ended Maddinson’s gale earlier, fired Seb Gotch before Lyon made Victoria’s woes worse
