    Walk or not walk

    Stuart Broad was ostricised in Brisbane last year for not walking after he edged a ball in England the year before. Peter Neville has just been clipped on the gloves, but alas England does not have any appeals remaining! I will wager that nothing is mentioned about Neville not walking after being clipped on the glove. I wonder which is more noticeable to the player, clipping a ball with the glove or the bat?

    I'll take your wager.

    You mentioned it, so I win.

    Then he edges one with the bat and immediately appeals! Quite rightly he is given out. How is that not cheating?

    The whole "Broad cheating" thing was a load of old bollocks, quite frankly. I'd walk personally, but how the Australian cricket team managed to convince the Australian public that Broad was some kind of pariah and that the Australian cricket team stood on some higher plane with respect to walking is one of the great psychological sporting heists of the modern era.

    Yeah that was when Lehmann had just taken over and was desperate to pick a fight. The outrage wasn't even remotely genuine.

    It was all on the wave of 'jobs for the boys' from the school of Steve Waugh after the booting of foreigner Mickey Arthur for being just too damn foreign as well. Dire from start to finish.

    The non-reaction Nevill will get for not walking exactly what he should get and what Broad should've got. Two wrongs etc

    You should never walk, players are not responsible for umpiring the game.

    Indeed.

    What was annoying about the Broad, was not so much the whinging Aussies we know their hypocritical, anything to undermine the oppo ways, it was when who the Twatty Brit slebs weighed in saying it wasn't fair.

    Everyone, from Lineker, The Governor, Dawkins to obviously the moron piping up on twitter.

    Broad is, to be fair, very easy to dislike
