Australia cricketer Nathan Lyon burnt a toast which delayed a Sheffield Shield match in Brisbane

Nathan Lyon single-handedly manage to delay the Sheffield Shield match between Queensland and New South Wales - by burning his toast!

The burnt toast set off the fire alarm, which forced the umpires to halt proceedings in the match and force evacuation from the Stuart Law Stand, where both the teams were put up along with the scorers and the media.

Play actually continued for a while before the umpires were alerted.

It was Lyon's actions that caused the "mishap", as he confessed he was "getting a bit bored in the changerooms", after play resumed.

The match resumed about 30 minutes later, as New South Wales went on to record a six-wicket victory.

He told cricket.com.au he got a bit distracted watching the game, and forgot to keep his eyes on the toaster.

This is not the first time this has happened, with a New Zealand Test against South Africa stopped for 15 minutes; according to reports then, fans only began to evacuate after seeing fire tenders reaching the spot. Another fire alarm forced abandonment of play in a game between Australia and South Africa A back in August past year.

"Steve Smith already said he's going to cover it (the fire truck call-out fee)".

Lyon also revealed he'd planned to put peanut butter on his piece of toast.
