Lyon was eventually dismissed for 4 and received a standing ovation from the Australian players and crowd as the World Test champions finished the match with 279 runs, creating a 371-run advantage.
Since it happened, I’ve had conversations with our medical team, Lyon told reporters Saturday after halftime. I was aware of the risks. But I’ll do anything for this team.
Meanwhile, Australia won the second Ashes Test at Lord’s on Sunday by 43 points to lead 2-0 in the five-Test series, despite a superb performance by England captain Ben Stokes at rearguard (155 points).
Stokes looked encouraged after a controversial stumping of teammate Johnny Bairstow and began knocking down sixes and fours all over the court. But in the end he trapped goalkeeper Alex Carey, and Australia’s fast bowlers scored the last three wickets for England to win.
