Shocking I think, because Hameed down to earth, right now with England Lion plus he is more and more injury prone.

Candid
Law 31.6 - benefit of the doubt for an dismissal appeal goes to the batsman
A third umpire call for a run out or stumping is a referral, not a review.

"Is he as talented a player as I've seen come into the England side? I'd say so," Anderson said. "He's right up there.

"I know Cookie is the leading run scorer but I'd say he is a better more technically sound opening batsman that Cook.

"I played with him at Lancashire last year and you see teams throwing everything at him: short balls; around the wicket; everything. And he seemed to cope with everything that was thrown at him."

That's the quote
