Mumbai: 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.  

After the match ended, the Australia fans took to twitter and bashed the Australian spinner for his mistake that cost Australians the match.
