'Best Test dismissal ever, ' wrote another.
After putting Pakistan in a commanding position during the second Test against Australia, batsmen Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq involved a comical run-out that will be remembered for ages in the history of gentlemen's game.
Pakistan declared there also, and gave itself just under five sessions to bowl out Australia.
Khawaja appears highly unlikely to bat when Australia resume at 1-47 on Friday, requiring another 491 runs to pull off a world-record run chase in the series-decider.
Aaron Finch (24 not out) and Travis Head (17 not out) will resume on Friday with Australia needing a miracle to avoid a crushing defeat.
Veteran paceman Peter Siddle said Khawaja appeared to have hurt himself in innocuous circumstances.
Australia's bowlers failed to press their advantage after Lyon's brilliance, and the 145 put on in reply was their fourth-lowest first innings total in Asia.
'I don't know how to describe it. "It's disappointing for him but fingers crossed he gets some good news tonight".
Azhar Ali, who was batting on 64, edged a delivery past gully on the drive, and the ball ran towards the boundary.
Ali, along with his teammate at the crease, thought that it was a certain boundary and hence did not bother to finish the run as they stopped for a chat in the middle of the crease.
"Thankfully the other batsmen went in and did the job", Azhar said.
