The milestone wicket was a huge one for Nathan Lyon and it drew curtains on the spirited 162-run stand early on the fourth day. Dawid Malan (82) stepped out but wasn’t to the pitch of the ball and inside-edged one onto his pads for a simple catch nearby. Root followed suit as he reaches out for a good length ball from Cameron Green and ended up feathering a nick for 89. Ollie Pope was then cramped for room and caught at slip as he arched back to cut Lyon. Safe to say, the visitors have tumbled like dominoes this morning after all the hard work put in yesterday to stage a fightback.
The moment we’ve all been waiting for… Nathan Lyon gets his 400th test wicket! ðŸ”¥
