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.
Boonie needs to do his ref job here. Please explain from umps for that, and fine at least for Broad deliberately pigging the ball at Marnus.

They absolutely have the right to tell batsman to either face up or retire hurt. They've been far too lenient for years
The question is, why is it an issue now. England have been time wasting the entire series and as soon as they have a sniff of being half competitive all of a sudden there’s huge drama around a bloke that’s smashed his finger and they’re all setting the 20 metre sprint record in the change of overs

In response Boland could have said fine I’m going off injured with 2 balls left, and than been too unfit to play before heroically returning for a last wicket stand.

Yeah massively slow over rates they have no right to whinge.
