Ashes 2019: Tim Paine’s DRS blunders continue at The Oval; here’s the video

On day three of the fifth Ashes Test at The Oval, Australian skipper Tim Paine chose not to refer two lbw decisions that would have been overturned and delivered key wickets as England piled on the runs and extended their lead into record territory.

Paine has struggled with the DRS during the ongoing series, which came into the spotlight during the dramatic closing stages of the Headingley Test, where he wasted Australia’s final review an over before Nathan Lyon would have had the rampaging Ben Stokes out lbw had the visitors saved their review earlier.

Paine has also struggled with the decision review system (DRS) and his troubles continued at the Oval with two non-referrals that would have claimed the wickets of Joe Denly when he was on 54 and and Jos Buttler for 19.

Denly went on to make 94, after Mitch Marsh looked to have trapped him lbw, and Buttler 47, despite a confident appeal from Nathan Lyon when he struck him on the pads in front of the stumps.
