Burnt Toast Stops Play Down Under

Burnt Toast Stops Play Down Under

Cricketers are well used to delays because of inclement weather, but it was burnt toast that held up Queensland's Sheffield Shield game against New South Wales.

Australia spinner Nathan Lyon was the culprit, having left his bread unattended while his NSW side were batting only to return to realise the fire alarm had gone off.

"(The toast) popped up first and I wasn't happy so I put it back down and I got carried away watching the cricket," Lyon said in quotes reported on Cricket Australia's website.

Fortunately for Lyon, the concentration of New South Wales' batsmen was not affected and they swiftly wrapped up victory after the restart.
