Nathan Lyon's overcooked toast shuts down Sheffield Shield match

NSW appear on track for another Shield win after restricting Queensland in both innings

NSW appear on track for another Shield win after restricting Queensland in both innings

New South Wales eventually went on to record a six-wicket victory.

The Sheffield Shield match between New South Wales and Queensland at Allan Border Field was brought to a halt for more than 30 minutes on Wednesday after a fire alarm went off in one of the changerooms. Australian captain, Steve Smith, Usman Khawaja and David Warner waited on the edge of the boundary ropes as two fire trucks arrived at the ground.

"The toast popped up first and I wasn't happy so I put it back down and I got carried away watching the cricket", the 29-year-old off-spinner told Cricket.com.au.

This is not the first time this has happened, with a New Zealand Test against South Africa stopped for 15 minutes; according to reports then, fans only began to evacuate after seeing fire tenders reaching the spot.

AP Top 25: Miami Up to No. 2 After Routing Notre Dame
After an argument between a Miami fan and two Notre Dame fans gets heated, one of the Notre Dame fans pushes the Miami fan. Miami is back at No. 2 in The Associated Press college football poll, the Hurricanes' best ranking since 2003.

"Steven Smith already said he's going to cover it (the fire-truck call-out fee)", Lyon said. Another fire alarm forced abandonment of play in a game between Australia and South Africa A back in August past year.

The play was stopped and Tea was taken with the visitors needing just 18 runs for the victory.

The match also saw Matt Renshaw's poor form continue - the Middlesbrough-born opener making scores of 16 and one - but Lyon says his global team-mate retains support from within the dressing room.
