Twitterati criticizes Nathan Lyon’s sportsmanship after AB de Villiers run-out

Posted On / /

Australia has defeated South Africa by 118 runs in the Durban Test on Monday. However, what grabbed a lot of eyeballs of the on-field audience as well as Twitter users was the Australian off-spinner Nathan Lyon’s attitude towards AB de Villers, after the latter’s run-out on Sunday.

AB de Villiers was dismissed for a golden duck after some fine work from David Warner and Lyon. But, what followed immediately after the run-out, is something that can be described as an act of lack of sportsmanship. Lyon, after knocking over the stumps to run-out De Villiers, was caught dropping the ball on the batsman as he ran to celebrate with his teammates.

Here’s how Twitterati lashed out at Nathan Lyon:
