Lyon’s Park: Test star returns to where ‘magic’ began

Emily walpole



Kicking back on his couch last weekend, Nathan Lyon flicked on the live stream of Queensland’s Marsh Sheffield Shield match against Tasmania in Adelaide and found himself increasingly perplexed.

Despite having played first-class cricket for a decade and lived in South Australia for several years where he worked preparing pitches at a number of metropolitan venues, he could not place the quaint village-style ground with the bright white picket fence that was hosting the Bulls-Tigers game.

“I even said to my girlfriend, Emma, a few times ‘I don’t know where this ground is in Adelaide, I can’t remember it’,” Lyon recalled this week.

It was only when the camera panned back to reveal an unmistakable backdrop – the busy arterial road rising over railway lines that traverse the oval’s western boundary – he was forced bolt upright in his chair.

Even allowing for the radical transformation Park 25 (now Gladys Elphick Park) has undergone to become a bona fide cricket ground, how could he not have recognised the playing field for which he was singlehandedly responsible during his curatorial tenure in Adelaide?

How did he not know the wicket block he had tended so devotedly after taking a punt to pursue his dream of professional cricket by quitting Canberra and relocating interstate with little more than a groundman’s qualification and a fizzing off-break?

And how could fate dictate that the very field where he took the first step of his defining summer ten years ago will also launch the season in which he is destined to play his 100th Test match?


It’s not a stretch to suggest the swathe of grassland known bureaucratically as Park 25 (the parklands encircling Adelaide city are numbered 1-29) could be a wild place.

During the annual country cricket carnival in the summer of 1951-52, a lone gunman appeared at Railways Oval (now the site of Karen Rolton Oval) and fired six shots from a .303 rifle at terrified players.

A 31-year-old army captain fielding at cover was felled and died instantly from a bullet wound to the heart, while a 22-year-old standing at slip was also hit and suffered a compound fracture of his left arm before the sniper was found hiding among pepper trees towards the railway tracks.

By the time Nathan Lyon arrived in Adelaide aged 22 in 2010, having completed his curator’s apprenticeship at Canberra’s Manuka Oval where he had moved from the family home at Young (160km away) to further his cricket ambition, the western parklands were undergoing an upgrade.

But as Damian Hough – Lyon’s boss at the time having recently taken over the role of SA Cricket Association’s head curator from legendary Les Burdett – notes it was scarcely the most salubrious of Adelaide’s many suburban cricket grounds.

“It was a pretty old, had a run-down pavilion of sorts with about six changerooms and a canteen/umpires room as well as a workshop with a big old roller door,” Hough said of the venue that was used for grade cricket in summer and churned up by lacrosse players during winter.

“It was always being graffitied or vandalised, it’s on the edge of a railway line and even the playing surface itself wasn’t great.

“But when I showed Nathan Park 25, he was really keen to work there which left me scratching my head a bit.

“I’m thinking ‘okay, you’ve been at Manuka Oval as second-in-charge but you want to come to work down here where you’re going to be looking after this ground pretty much on your own?’.”

Lyon recalls his biggest challenge was arriving at Park 25 on Saturday mornings to prepare the track for that afternoon’s Premier Cricket only to find a few folks asleep on the outfield after a big night at the Newmarket Hotel, only a short staggering distance away.

He also remembers the thrill he felt in effectively becoming ‘head groundsman’ of his own turf fiefdom, albeit a suburban park that hosted dog walkers as often as it did cricket matches and training sessions.

His crowning achievement, and one that he revisited with pride when he returned to the ground for training with his New South Wales teammates this week, was introducing checks and other patterns mown into the grass, an innovation he also convinced Hough to adopt at Adelaide Oval.

“The thing I remember about Park 25 was, it was always just cut in circles, there was never any pattern to it,” Lyon told

“It was the same at Adelaide Oval, and I said to Damian Hough ‘if I’m going to be down here at Park 25 full-time, I’m going to make it look respectable.

“So I started doing the ring patterns, and started checkering it up a little bit which, as a green keeper, it’s those little one per cent things that make it more pleasing on the eye.

“It just gave it that look of a little tender loving care.

“There was probably a lot more pride in my work being pretty much the only guy working down there for 80 per cent of the time I was with SACA.

“It was mainly used for Premier Cricket but also junior carnivals – under-17s and under-19s – as well as disability cricket, I remember blind cricket being played there.”

It was also the ground where Lyon made his SA Premier Cricket debut for Prospect in a Saturday afternoon T20 fixture against Sturt in October 2010.

Ever mindful of criticism from opponents if a pitch he prepared overtly favoured his style of bowling, he produced a track on which his team struggled to score 9/87 from their 20 overs and lost by nine wickets (although Lyon did claim that solitary scalp).

Nobody among the handful who bore witness to that game, or those who might have glimpsed Lyon atop the mower or heavy roller at Park 25 during that early Adelaide spring could have foreseen what came next.

Hough remembers how his young charge would finish a weekend’s work on the tools and then in his whites, and jump on a plane back to Canberra to continue his Futures League (the state second XI competition) playing commitments before returning to Adelaide on the first available flight when those games concluded.

While such a punishing regime underscored the work ethic for which Lyon has become renowned, it also reinforced reservations Hough held when first told that a young bloke from Canberra was being hired to prepare pitches and play cricket.

“I thought ‘nah, I’m not having a cricketer on staff because they aren’t available when you want them’,” Hough told this week.

“We’d had a few with us over the years with the academies here and their priority is cricket, not pulling covers and working long hours at weekends.”

However, Hough’s initial reluctance was mollified by an assessment from a senior official who has earned a place in cricket folklore not dissimilar to Decca Records’ Dick Rowe, who famously failed to sign The Beatles in 1962 because “guitar groups are on their way out”.

In Lyon’s case, the official apparently surmised the new boy would be available for far more curatorial work than cricket playing because, despite the lad’s ambition to crack a place in the SA team or even the Redbacks second XI, he was deemed “a net bowler at best”.

As events unfurled, Hough had his new recruit for barely 10 weeks.

Playing for Canberra’s under-23 team in the ‘baby bash’ T20 competition in Melbourne that 2010-11 summer, Lyon came to the attention of Darren Berry who was coaching SA in the domestic T20 competition that preceded the current KFC Big Bash League.

Then SA selector (and former Australia all-rounder) Andrew Zesers told Lyon that Berry had been watching him closely during the ‘baby bash’ and wanted to include him in SA’s squad for the grown-ups tournament that was about to start.

Stories abound that it was while SA were training under Berry at Park 25, with Adelaide Oval’s nets unavailable due to construction of a new western grandstand, that the coach was alerted to the spin credentials of the groundsman operating a roller nearby.

That legend maintains Berry then approached Lyon and asked if he would take part in training, with Lyon initially voicing reluctance because he had pitches to prepare before sending down a few deliveries, sufficient to convince Berry he was a special talent.

Lyon doesn’t actively refute the tale, nor does he endorse its authenticity.

“We’re talking about ten years ago, and I can believe that might have happened but I honestly can’t remember,” he said.

“The story certainly doesn’t go ‘I was on the roller, the ball was hit towards me and I jumped off the roller and bowled it back to them and they suddenly thought ‘shit, this bloke can bowl’.

“But I know Darren (Berry) was a big fan, and I remember he wanted me to be at training a lot more and to bowl a lot more while I was still working there.

“They did a lot of centre wicket training at Park 25 back then, so I’d roll the wickets, then go to the shed and put my gear on for training.

“I felt a bit like I was walking on egg shells – I was very conscious of doing my job and not wanting to annoy Damian, the boss.”

What Hough also didn’t know was he was about to lose his new employee to a far more lucrative trade.

Three months after preparing the pitch for his Premier Cricket debut at Park 25, Lyon shared the new ball with SA’s West Indian import Kieron Pollard at Adelaide Oval against New South Wales’ T20 opener (now his Blues and Australia teammate) David Warner.

A month after that, the 23-year-old played his first Sheffield Shield game for SA against Western Australia at the WACA in Perth, a trip that also included his maiden domestic one-day appearance against the same opponent.

Lyon finished with 12 wickets at 43 from his four Shield games that 2010-11 summer but, in the wake of humbling Test series losses to India (away) and England (home) Lyon was included in an Australia A squad to tour Zimbabwe under skipper Tim Paine.

Two months hence, he was plucked to make his Test debut against Sri Lanka at Galle in August 2011.

It was less than a year since he had taken up the job at Park 25 in the hope of snaring a place in SA’s second XI and, perhaps, a senior cap.

“It’s an amazing story,” his former boss Hough, still head curator at Adelaide Oval, said today.

“For a guy to come over here with no promises other than ‘you can look after Park 25’, and to back himself to chase a dream, it shows you how he’s worked and worked and worked.

“We were blown away when he first got here.

“I just thought to myself ‘this guy’s got a good attitude, he’s a real positive influence around the group, and he brings real energy and a breath of fresh air.

“I hit it off with him straight away, I just really liked him as a person.

“And he hasn’t changed, he’s still that humble, down-to-earth guy who I see a couple of times a year and he sometimes says to me, tongue in cheek, that he’s struggling and might need his old job back.

“But if he comes out to look at a pitch, I’ll ask him what length he thinks I’ve cut it and he’s always miles out – he’s been out of the (curator) game too long, he’s got no idea.”

On Monday, Lyon returns to his former domain, that formally became a first-class venue when it hosted Queensland and Tasmania last week, as one of Test cricket’s genuine greats.

Nathan Lyon selects his top Test wickets

His 390 wickets almost triples the next-highest haul by an Australia off-spinner (Hugh Trumble’s 141) and only Sri Lanka’s Muthiah Muralidaran (800) and India’s Harbhajan Singh (417) surpass him among finger spinners to have played Test cricket over the past 143 years.

And with 96 appearances to date in the Baggy Green Cap, the 32-year-old is likely to become the 13th Australian player to reach 100 Tests if he remains uninjured for the proposed upcoming four-match Vodafone Series against India.

Of greater interest to Lyon come Monday will be the pitch at Park 25, now overseen by former SA and WA pace bowler Trent Kelly (who learned much from his father-in-law, Les Burdett) who is now the ground manager, and the transformation of his unprepossessing old work place.

Which he has long looked upon as a proud parent, even if he didn’t recognise it in its formal wear last week.

“I always take a keen interest when coming into Adelaide, whether flying over the top of it or in a bus or vehicle driving past, I always keep an eye on what the oval looks like,” Lyon said.

“Hats off to the South Australian Cricket Association, what they’ve done there has transformed it and Trent Kelly’s done an absolutely fantastic job with the wickets and the presentation of the ground.

“With the picket fence it looks totally different, and it’s made a massive difference.

“We’re very lucky to have something like that for the Shield hub given what’s going on at the moment.

“If somebody had suggested it 10 years ago, I would have said ‘I’d love to make you a wicket for a Shield game out there but I wouldn’t be that keen to have a bowl on it’ – it’s quite small as a ground.

“But now, I can’t wait for Monday to start playing some competitive cricket.

“Hopefully it will take a bit of spin, although I was talking to Trent Kelly the other day and he said the pitch we’re playing on against WA is part of a new square that was laid about a year or more ago.

“So all my magic touch has left it.”

Q: How can patent owners best enforce their rights in your jurisdiction?

United States patents are litigated, often simultaneously, in multiple venues, including in federal district courts, before the International Trade Commission (ITC) and at the PTAB. Successful enforcement of patents requires extensive preparation to navigate these multiple venues, and to prevent patent infringers from taking pre-emptive action at the PTAB to attack patent rights or in the district courts to obtain a venue in perceived infringer-friendly jurisdictions. In some instances, it may be desirable for a patentee to return to the patent office for re-examination or supplemental examination to affirm the validity of patents over prior art before filing a lawsuit. For high-stakes disputes involving technologies that are imported into the United States, perhaps the strongest available remedy is a fast-track action at the ITC to block the importation of infringing products.

Q: Are mediation and arbitration realistic alternatives to litigation?

Yes. A strong bench of experienced former patent judges and litigators are available to serve as arbitrators or mediators. Mediation is almost always required during district court litigation.

Q: Who hears patent cases – for example, individual judges, a panel of judges, a mix of judges and technical experts, judges and juries?

This depends on the venue and the issue. At the PTAB, which only decides challenges to patent validity, all issues are heard by three-judge panels of administrative patent judges. These are typically experienced former private practitioners or patent examiners with a background in the relevant technology and in patent law. Cases at the ITC are handled by administrative law judges with the assistance of staff attorneys who play a quasi-advocate role. The administrative law judges and staff attorneys are not patent specialists like administrative patent judges. They do, however, handle many high-stakes patent disputes and are typically well versed in patent law and technology. District court litigation is conducted by generalist federal judges, and is the only venue where juries make decisions in patent cases. Decision making in the district courts is split between judges and juries, with judges deciding issues of law such as claim construction, juries deciding issues of fact such as infringement and damages, and many issues such as invalidity that are a mix of fact and law. Typically, the parties are assisted by professional, testifying technical and damages experts. Occasionally, the district court judges will engage a technical adviser to assist in particularly difficult technical issues.

Q: What level of expertise can litigants expect from courts?

PTAB and ITC judges have a high degree of sophistication when it comes to patent law and technology. Most district court judges have only a small percentage of their dockets dedicated to patent cases and, as such, are relatively inexperienced with patent law and have minimal training in science and technology. A limited number of jurisdictions handle most district court patent cases and are more predictable than other jurisdictions. Judges in these jurisdictions utilise local patent rules and are experienced with certain technology areas.

Q: Are validity and infringement dealt with together in proceedings?

PTAB proceedings decide validity only and can be filed with or without a related infringement action. District court litigations almost always decide both validity and infringement, but cases are often stayed while the PTAB decides validity. ITC actions decide both validity and infringement and are not stayed even if a parallel PTAB action is filed to challenge the patents at issue – although ITC remedies can be collaterally attacked in view of successful PTAB challenges.

Q: Who may represent parties engaged in a dispute?

An attorney for a district court case must be admitted in the federal district court where the case is being heard, which typically requires membership in the local state bar. The PTAB requires attorneys appearing before it to be admitted to the USPTO, which in turn requires a suitable science or technology degree and to have passed a patent bar exam. Attorneys who are not admitted in a district court or to the USPTO may appear pro hac vice. ITC admission is available to qualified US attorneys.

Q: To what extent is forum selection possible in your jurisdiction?

Within the federal district court system, lawsuits can be filed in any district court venue where the accused infringer is either incorporated or has a ‘regular and established place of business’. This latter phrase is the subject of many disputes but appears to require some employees and a bricks-and-mortar presence. Even if the venue is proper, the accused infringer may still seek to move the case to another jurisdiction based on factors such as the location of witnesses and other related cases. Venue is often hotly disputed, because some venues are considered favourable to patent owners, while others are considered favourable to accused infringers. Accused infringers often try to secure their favoured venue by filing declaratory judgment actions. It is commonplace for accused infringers to file a validity challenge in the PTAB. Although invalidation rates have recently seen a slight drop, the PTAB is still considered more welcoming of invalidity arguments than district courts. Timing is often key to whether a PTAB challenge will be effective or will even be heard. Some district courts will not stay their cases if a PTAB challenge does not shortly follow an accusation of infringement, and the PTAB may also decline to hear cases that are running well behind parallel infringement proceedings. There are also relatively strict requirements to file PTAB cases within a year after a lawsuit against an accused infringer.

Because ITC proceedings are procedurally intensive and operate on a fast track, district court cases are stayed while the ITC case is resolved. Although PTAB cases are not typically stayed, due to the similar time to decision of ITC cases and PTAB cases, and the fact that an ITC accusation of infringement typically precedes a PTAB challenge to validity, an ITC complainant (ie, the patent owner) can often obtain a favourable ITC decision prior to resolution of the accused infringer’s PTAB validity challenge.

Q: To what extent is pre-trial discovery permitted?

Pre-trial discovery is freely allowed on relevant subjects and is generally quite burdensome in both district court and ITC proceedings. The strict timetables of ITC cases significantly increase the net discovery burden in the ITC. Discovery rules require disclosure of even highly confidential information, although critical technical data such as schematics, source code and clinical data are often available only in protected environments. Both the district courts and the ITC employ protective orders to allow for free exchange of information between the attorneys acting for the litigants.

Discovery in the PTAB is limited, with document discovery allowed only under special circumstances.

Q: To what extent is evidence written and oral at proceedings?

District court and ITC cases typically conduct full trials with live witnesses, often taking a week or more. There are also extensive opportunities for pre-trial decisions at summary judgment (district court) or summary determination (ITC), typically based on documents uncovered during discovery and deposition testimony.

PTAB cases are decided almost entirely on the papers. Witnesses appear only on rare occasions, and the PTAB ‘trial’ is a brief oral argument by the attorneys.

Q: What role, if any, can expert witnesses play?

Expert witnesses are critical to patent cases on all issues of fact, such as infringement, invalidity, and damages. Expert witness fees are typically a substantial factor in the expense of patent litigation.

Q: Is the doctrine of equivalents applied by courts in your jurisdiction and, if so, what form does it take?

While available, the doctrine of equivalents is applied sparingly due to limiting doctrines such as prosecution history estoppel.

Q: Are there problems in enforcing certain types of patent relating to, for example, biotechnology, business methods or software?

Under the Mayo/Alice framework, many issued patents are subject to challenge as not being directed to ‘patentable subject matter’. Issues often arise for patents that automate business processes, software patents and medical diagnostic patents. The outcomes of patentable subject-matter challenges are often unpredictable, and some venues tend to be more pro-patent or anti-patent when applying this framework.

Q: To what extent are courts obliged to consider previous cases that have covered issues similar to those pertaining to a dispute?

In general, courts and other tribunals are required to apply only rulings from previous cases that were between the same parties and involve the same issues as the current proceeding. Nonetheless, prior rulings are often persuasive even if not binding on a party.

Q: To what extent are courts willing to consider the way in which the same or similar cases have been dealt with in other jurisdictions? Are decisions from some jurisdictions more persuasive than those from others?

The various types of United States patent tribunal – district courts, the ITC and the PTAB – are not bound by rulings from other these bodies unless affirmed on appeal. Rulings from foreign jurisdictions typically have little persuasive value unless the issues under consideration are virtually identical, such as invalidity of identical claims in view of the same prior art.

Q: What realistic options are available to defendants seeking to delay a case? How might a plaintiff counter these?

Defendants will typically file a declaratory judgment action for non-infringement in a perceived favourable district court venue and then promptly file a challenge to the patents in the PTAB. This often affords a stay of any infringement litigation while the PTAB adjudicates invalidity over approximately 18 months. Other options include other challenges at the USPTO, such as petitions for ex parte re-examination.

Q: Under what circumstances, if any, will a court consider granting a preliminary injunction? How often does this happen?

Preliminary injunctions are relatively rare because the patentee must not only show a strong likelihood of success on the merits, but also that the infringement cannot be remedied by money damages. A preliminary injunction outside of a direct competitor environment is extraordinarily rare.

Q: What is the realistic timescale to get a decision at first instance from the initiation of proceedings?

The ITC and PTAB operate on an approximately 18-month timetable to reach a decision at the first instance, while district courts range from 18 to 36 months.

Q: How much should a litigant budget for in order to take a case through to a decision at first instance?

A litigant should budget as follows:

  • for each patent at the PTAB – $250,000 to $750,000;
  • for a ‘typical’ district court litigation – $2.5 million to $5 million; and
  • for a ‘typical’ ITC case – $3.5 million to $7.5 million.

Q: To what extent are the winning party’s costs recoverable from the losing party?

While costs are freely granted to the prevailing party, these only cover relatively small ministerial amounts. Attorney and expert fees are the main cost of litigation and are granted only in egregious cases involving particularly weak claims or defences, or improper litigation conduct.

Q: What remedies are available to a successful plaintiff?

In the ITC, the only remedy is an exclusion order prohibiting the importation of certain products (a limited exclusion order) or classes of products (a general exclusion order) into the United States. This remedy is almost always granted to a successful patent owner, although enforcement at Customs can be complicated.

In the PTAB, a successful patent owner maintains its patents.

Damages are awarded in district courts for up to six years of past infringement (from the date that the complaint was filed), provided that the infringer was on notice of the patent. Damages can be enhanced up to three times of the underlying damages award if the infringement is wilful – with knowledge or a wanton disregard of the infringement. District courts are permitted to grant permanent injunctions, but these are difficult to obtain under the governing eBay standard.

Q: How are damages awards calculated?

Damages are calculated under a ‘reasonable royalty’ or a ‘lost profits’ framework. Lost profits may provide a larger recovery, but this methodology is used only if the patentee can show that it could have made those profits but for the infringement. A reasonable royalty looks at what sort of payment the parties would have come to under a multi-factor ‘hypothetical negotiation’ framework at the date of the start of infringement.

Q: Under what circumstances will courts grant permanent injunctions?

Under the US Supreme Court’s eBay decision, permanent injunctions are not usually available for patent infringement. That is, although a patent is supposed to provide a right to exclude others from practising the invention, the remedy of exclusion is available only under rare circumstances, particularly in cases involving multi-component electrical or mechanical products or software. The most difficult hurdle to overcome is the requirement that money damages are inadequate.

Q: Does the losing party at first instance have an automatic right of appeal?

Whether at the PTAB, ITC or in district courts, the losing party has a right to appeal a final decision to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which is the sole appellate court for issues involving patents.

Q: How long does it typically take for the appellate decision to be handed down?

For the appellate decision to be handed down, it typically takes between 12 and 18 months from filing.

Q: Is it possible to take cases beyond the second instance?

The United States Supreme Court is the only court that can review decisions of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Review is discretionary by writ of certiorari and is granted on only one or two patent cases a year.

Q: To what extent do the courts in your jurisdiction have a reputation for being pro-patentee?

The PTAB had a reputation as being anti-patentee, but that reputation has become less true over the past couple of years.

The ITC is considered an even-handed tribunal, although the strict timetable is considered burdensome to accused infringers.

District courts have varying reputations, with the Eastern and Western Districts of Texas considered pro-patentee, the Northern District of California considered pro-infringer, and the Districts of Delaware, New Jersey and Massachusetts, the Central District of California, the Southern District of New York and the Northern District of Illinois considered knowledgeable of patent cases and neither pro-patentee or pro-infringer.

Q: Are there other fora outside the court system in which it is possible to assert patents in your jurisdiction? If so, under what circumstances might it be appropriate to use them?

The ITC is the primary alternative forum for patent infringement litigation.

Q: Are there any other issues relating to the enforcement system in your country that you would like to raise?

The United States does not have the same kind of requirements that Europe does around SEPs. There are limitations around remedies associated with SEPs in the United States, but the process around pre-suit negotiation is different from that in Europe.

The covid-19 pandemic has generally delayed litigation by a few months. Courts and litigants have begun to adjust to remote depositions, hearings and even trials. Difficult issues have arisen relating to the review of technical documents.
