Earlier today, Nathan Lyon sensationally took Sami Aslam’s wicket on his third ball of the day — a delivery set aside by the crowd to roar into Matty Wade’s “Nice Garry” shout.
It was a brilliant bit of theatre that you couldn’t script, and solidified Lyon’s status as a a cult figure amongst Aussie fans.
Cricket.com.au had cameras trained on the rowdier sections of the crowd in preparation and captured the wild celebrations when the Goat broke through.
