Mumbai: Ex-Australia spinner Shane Warne blasted former England batsman Matt Prior for mocking Nathan Lyon after England levelled the Ashes Test series 1-1 at Headingley.

Australia would have retained the urn had Nathan Lyon not fumbled the return throw. But, ultimately at the end, Nathan Lyon would be blaming himself for the blooper. Australia required one wicket to win while Jack Leach and Ben Stokes were trying to save England from another defeat. After Stokes played a reverse-sweep shot, Jack Leach ran straight towards the 28-year-old all-rounder.

 

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

However, when the throw came, Lyon fumbled and let the arch-rivals get away. In the next ball, Stokes was plumb leg before the wicket but Australia had no reviews left as they wasted all their reviews.  

Prior, the former England wicket-keeper took a dig at the Australia spinner, after the latter criticised the former before the 2017-18 Ashes. However, as soon as Prior took a jibe at Lyon, Australia’s legendary Warner took him by surprise after the former Aussie leg spinner defended his country’s player in a series of tweets.

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