The New Zealand cricket team's horrible use of the Decision Review System (DRS) have haunted them in the ongoing first Test match against England in Mount Maunganui.
England posted 353 in the first innings with Ben Stokes scoring 91.
In reply, New Zealand are 144/4 and poor use of the DRS hurt their cause.
Here are further details.
