England v NZ 2021 – Stuart Broad on soft signal


England seamer says current system puts on-field umpires in “really difficult situation”

Stuart Broad has called for the ICC to “do away with” the soft signal following a controversial moment on the second day of the LV= Insurance Test against New Zealand at Edgbaston.

Broad was convinced that Devon Conway had been caught at slip by Zak Crawley when the batter had 22. But the on-field umpires were unsure and referred the decision to the TV umpire, Michael Gough, with a soft signal of not out. Gough subsequently confirmed that on-field decision despite replays suggesting Crawley had his fingers under the ball. Conway went on to make 80 and help New Zealand build a strong position in the game.
