Also Read:Ben Stokes Measures out to Slap Kemar Roach for a Substantial six in Old TraffordCarrying on his stupendous type, Stokes hogged the limelight on the last afternoon as he remained unbeaten on 78 away 57 with four fours and three sixes. But on the flip side, Stokes’ modern and West Indies skipper Jason Holder was famous for his poor reviews on Day 5 in Old Trafford. It was looking like the West Indies side was distressed for wickets, and in the process, they dropped three testimonials from 3 overs, encouraging criticism from several fans. Some fans pointed out that the visitors were just planning to waste some time by accepting those testimonials.
Two of these were throwing outside leg.Everything began at the 15th over when the West Indies side believed they had trapped Stokes in front. Holder, that was likewise the bowler took the inspection simply to learn the chunk was pitching way leg. The same was repeated in the following over bowled by Alzarri Joseph. Skipper Jason Holder took the next review, and the chunk was pitching outside leg again, causing fans to accuse the Caribbean side of time-wasting. The comment panel burst into laughter after seeing the terror LBW reviews. West Indies carried in their affair using failed testimonials since they took it in the 17th overs bowled by skipper Holder. On the very first ball, they believed that batsman Ollie Pope had been LBW later; he attempted to envision the ball but missed it at the procedure. On the other hand, the Ultra Edge, at the review, revealed a spike, suggesting that bat has been included in the process. Jason Holder, along with his troops, despite providing an impressive performance from the first Test at Southampton, were criticized for their antics on the last afternoon of the second Test.

Some of Jason Holder’s reviews a very good advert for idea of unlimited reviews per team per Test, with say a 5 run penalty for every incorrect review— Tim Wigmore (@timwig) July 20, 2020
That review from Holder was all about using up two minutes in case bad light becomes a factor later. Probably.— Lawrence Booth (@the_topspin) July 20, 2020

Holder taking a review to eat up the 2 minutes but did he wait for the entire 15 seconds before going up for the review?#ENGvWI— Suneer (@suneerchowdhary) July 20, 2020
Jason Holder is arguably the best player in world cricket right now. But he will never do anything better than review purely so we can all watch Ben Stokes cop it in the cock. #ENGvWI— Matt Bellotti (@MCMattSally) July 20, 2020
The ball was clearing pitching way outside and it hit Ben Stokes on thighs, still Jason Holder took the review. Umpire and commentators were laughing too after this strange review.— Mufaddal Vohra (@mufaddal_vohra) July 20, 2020

Excellent review from Jason Holder there (about a metre outside leg) – Day 5 time wasting at its finest.— Angus Oliver (@angusoliver) July 20, 2020
