"He finally convinced Cameron Bancroft to lend him his baggy green for the ceremony because god forbid you do the ceremony without your sacred baggy green on your head."

"Cameron Bancroft didn't look too happy about giving it to David Warner, I might add," he said.

"Just after the ceremony, Bancroft reappeared with another baggy green and it's that distinctive baggy green that's Warner's that has that white patch on top of the quilt.

"Guess where it was? Under Nathan Lyon's kit bag. It had fallen on the floor and Nathan Lyon had put his bag on top of it and that's held up play all day."
