South Africa vs England 2017: 2nd Test day 1, 5 talking points
#4 England continue to mess up reviews
If the shambolic reviews from both the teams at Lord's were not enough, England showed that they had done little homework in mastering the 'T' signal. Close to lunch, Ben Stokes vehemently appealed for a leg before decision against Hashim Amla and persuaded Root to take the review when the on-field umpire turned down his appeal. Replays however, revealed a clear inside edge and England lost their first review by the 19th over.
Shortly after lunch, Bairstow messed up another call when he convinced his skipper to go upstairs for a leg before wicket decision against Heino Kuhn off Stuart Broad. The ball had swung back in sharply and had struck Kuhn above the knee roll. Nevertheless, Bairstow and Broad seemed convinced but had to face up to a furious Root when ball tracker showed that the ball was missing the stumps. But Broad made amends when he bowled Kuhn three overs later.
