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.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.
Yeah the English always get away with "gamesmanship".I hate these Poms. Where the hell was this hustle before?
Now imo sends physio away? Boland isn’t a faking w***er like they are.
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.
They absolutely have the right to tell batsman to either face up or retire hurt. They've been far too lenient for yearsThat 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.
