England fans can officially stfu about the stumping now, they have definitely had the benefit of the doubt

Yeah come on, half the ball is cannoning straight into leg stump. The burden of proof for overturning an umpire's call is a tad too high imo.
Yeah. Fair enough to go with the on field decision, but agree with Nufan that you shouldn't lose a review when it shows umpires call.

Yeah very lucky.

What's ridiculous is that they seem to have made the umpire's call margin even higher now, although that might have just been for impact. Still its silly.

Inclined to agree. The argument made against is that DRS is for howlers but I don't think that's what it should be; it should be to ensure that the correct decision is made

Cook looks more 06/07 than 10/11 atm
Even at his best he's not a brilliant starter. One of those that punishes you big time if you don't get it right to him early on. Pattinson has the right idea, very full outside off.
