Lyon was working as a groundsman at the venue when called into South Australia's Twenty20 team in 2011.

After being told of his selection, Lyon excitedly phoned his father Steven.

"Dad said 'yeah it will be good, you'll learn something. But you'll be back working on the groundstaff before you know it, so don't get your hopes up,'" Lyon has said.

The 32-year-old's haul on Monday is the 16th time he has taken five or more wickets in a Test innings - four of them in Adelaide.
