Chef Lyon stops play for 30 minutes

Fortunately it wasn't a unsafe fire, but the real cause of the alarm was rather embarrassing for Lyobn.

After the delay, a sheepish Lyon admitted he had caused the alert while making a some toast. There have been many instances in the past where cricket matches were forced to stop for a while due to weird reasons.

New South Wales were facing Queensland in the JLT Sheffield Shield match on Wednesday at the Allan Border Field when a fire alarm suddenly went off that forced the umpires to suspend the play for around 30 minutes.

The match also saw Matt Renshaw's poor form continue - the Middlesbrough-born opener making scores of 16 and one - but Lyon says his worldwide team-mate retains support from within the dressing room. The fire alarm went off in the Stuart Law grandstand, where the dressing rooms of both the teams were located.

Needing just 18 more runs to win, NSW were 4-110, when play was stopped, but the all clear was given to resume the match around 30 minutes later.

"(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 to reporters later. "I was getting a bit bored in the change-rooms", Nathan Lyon was quoted as saying by Following the brief stoppage, batsmen Kurtis Patterson and Daniel Hughes returned to the pitch and completed a resounding 6-wicket win over Queensland.
