I think some questions may be asked about that decision. DRS down momentarily and a decision like that occurs almost straight away. I don't expect much from the New Zealand side because I find them the most sporting team in any sport (they have had some shocking decisions go against them in recent years).
I reckon the bookies will be checking any suspicious betting patterns there.

Thought it’d been down all morning ?

Mitchell's average is currently 152 for the series, including this knock as not out. At the end of his 6th innings, he could easily have a series average of 100+, great effort from him, overseas as well.

It wasn’t a shocker of a decision. DRS had been down all morning.

I doubt the bookies were behind DRS being down and they probably didn’t have a conversation with the umpires instructing them to give any decision that is close if the system ever goes down.

The only thing it might have done is make the umpire subconsciously more likely to give the decision.
