It would be so disheartening for Gabriel and Roach to toil in the field, working their butts off to bowl 140k plus, to then watch their batsmen fold and throw their wickets away. Braithwaite and Holder are the only ones who regularly put a big value on their wicket.

As a fan I am not all that impressed by watching DM Bravo ooze batting talent and not playing internationals. It isn't like he is on the T20 circuit like his older half-brother is. But as a NZ fan, I have endured it with the Ryder dramas - still a waste of talent, though.
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.
