Rory Burns must have had his heart in his mouth when the umpire ruled him out leg-before off Mitchell Starc in the second innings, but a sensible review saved the opener. The in-slanter from Starc rapped him above the knee roll as he planted the frontfoot a long way across the off-stump and the line looked pretty adjacent, however, the height was always going to be a concern and so it proved as Rory went upstairs to challenge the on-field decision. Having survived the close shout, Burns went on to pull Starc in front of square to gain some much-needed confidence.

First Test (Brisbane) / Day 3 | 🇦🇺 Australia vs 🏴 England
England very nearly lost an Early Wicket. Confident that he wasn't going to be given his marching orders, Rory Burns reviewed the call! And with flying colours too!
