The 2nd Test in England revealed that England players wait for the video review to be completed before taking the field.


Stuart Broad was left frustrated during Day 2 of the 2nd Test and stated his frustration out loud.

As Devon Conway and Zak Crawley were also present, they were also implicated in the incident.

Softly, the groundskeeper waved his hat, and the umpire canceled the dismissal.

It appeared that during the second day’s play at Edgbaston, England’s left-arm spinner Stuart Broad believed he had Devon Conway out in the slips, but a so-called soft signal saved Conway from dismissal.

Stuart Broad, a current member of the England cricket team, called on cricket administrators to “do away now” with the Decision Review System (DRS) following the conclusion of the ongoing second Test match between England and New Zealand. On the second day of the Edgbaston Test, Broad claimed that he had caught Devon Conway in the slips for 22. Third umpire Michael Gough was called in by his colleagues when there was sufficient doubt about the result. When umpire Richard Kettleborough called the players “come on” but with a softer tone, England’s chances of winning slipped away at that moment.

After careful deliberation, Gough decided that Conway was not out and that led to him making 80. However, New Zealand ended the day with a score of 229-3, 74 runs behind England’s first innings 303.

Broad, helped by a Crawley at deep square leg, still fumed that he hadn’t dismissed Conway earlier.

Broad told Sky Sports prior to Saturday’s game, “We can see from our reactions on the field that we thought it was out.”

Based on Joe Root’s reaction at first slip and on (wicket-keeper James) Bracey’s reactions behind the stumps, who are a yard away from the delivery, Zac’s belief that he has his fingers under the ball was very much in error.

It was interesting to note that, perhaps to avoid a reprimand from his father, ICC match referee Chris Broad showed sympathy for the umpires’ difficult situation when asked about the soft signal.

Even if the umpires are only 40 yards away with an obscured view, it’s not their fault.”

It’s either on the move or it isn’t.”

He’s a little restricted because of the on-field call because then the third umpire’s hands are tied.

Once he fell to sixth in the all-time list of leading wicket-takers, legendary Australian batsman Don Bradman declared that the ICC should remove the soft signal immediately, as “the con far outweighs the pro”.

His reaction to ICC meetings: “Why would I wait until September to go to another ICC meeting to talk about what’s going on in the game?” No need to waste time discussing it any further.”

It should be made clear to the public that the soft signal has ceased.” If the umpires are unsure, why not rely on the state-of-the-art technology we have at our disposal and get it right?
