So England could waste time at the end of the day by bringing out a physio but we can't with a guy who got hit on the finger.
They made the wrong call letting Broad do it. The correct call is to prevent obvious time wasting. Batsman can retire hurt if they're in pain.

Oh pfft.

Probably the hardest opening conditions I’ve seen this series. The ball is swinging and seaming around barn doors and the bounce is really inconsistent.

Would not want to be a batsmen out there.

Scotty B doing a great job so far shielding the batsmen.

The toughest conditions for the series were in Melbourne where Harris was the only batsman to look competent and he top scored with 75.

That is unacceptable by the umps, it is not their purview if a player is injured and it is wildly inconsistent to what has happened in the previous 4 test matches.
They absolutely have the right to tell batsman to either face up or retire hurt. They've been far too lenient for years
