    walk or not???

    On Sunday for the second time in a row a walked off after edging the ball, and none of the umpires heard or saw anything.... The first time i was on 16 and the second i was only on 4... My skipper/dad got ****ed off cos my fair-play was going against the team, and because i'm the only player in the leauge who walkes, so why care?-- PLus our pro (australian) told never 2 walk again--- He says: you walk only when you *ucking car brakes down... What shall i do next time i know i'm out and the ump doesn't raise his finger?

    well, when you play are there official umpires ? like umpires who are send by the italian cricket board?
    if yes. dont walk they are there to make the decission not you.

    I know how you feel Dro. As a 14 year old, I was playing some senior cricket and it was my first game in the 2nds. The umpires didn't rock up, so one of the fast bowlers from our own team was umpiring. Early on, I edged one down leg side, and he gave me not out (he said he legitimately thought that I wasn't out afterwards, but it was a fairly obvious nick) and I just stood there shi*ting myself waiting for the decision. I ended up making 64, and just copping abuse from 30 year olds the whole innings about being a cheat and not walking.

    Although I did happen to remind them on the odd occassion that it wouldn't have mattered at all if they hadn't have dropped me four times.

    Never walk. Ever. It may not be gentlemanly but it's consistent.

    Not walking is like shaving strokes playing golf, ur only cheating yourself. And how good can u feel about scoring a hundred when u knew u were out b4 and stayed alive due only by dishonesty.

    Then again, i guess you can walk if your the greatest wicket keeper batsman of all time. If he was fighting for his position and struggling for runs his own selfish motives could come into play? The lure of the darkside is strong

    Hmm, sort of. I guess it's more like doing what Pat Rafter did that time in a tennis tournament. On the other guy's match point, Rafter saved it after the guy hit the ball out, but Rafter goes "No, the ball was in" and therefore lost.

    And what about the times when you were going to make a hundred, but copped a bad one? I'd feel much better having made 100 than not, no matter what the circumstances.

    Not analogous and frankly the inference of cheating is unfair. Not walking means you leave the decision up to the umpire so you still get judged by someone in a better position than you're in. And Gilchrist's dismissal is a perfect example of where you can be wrong. Walking does undermine the position of the umpire a little too and until all decisions made by umpires are perfect, there's always the chance you'll get a roughie and speaking in probabilities, the rough ones will largely equal out of time with the fortunate ones.

    As I said, walking may be the gentlemanly thing to do but not walking is more consistent. One thing not walking is NOT is cheating because you're not deciding whether you're out or not but handing that decision to the umpire instead.

    I had that on 48 once, after going through two seasons without making a 50 - but with 7 40s.

    i wld never walk in a proper game.

    I do walk when we play friendly's and non significant matches.

    In a proper game, i never walk.. Not against walking, and i admire those who do, but unless it was really obvious, and the umpire was makin a big mistake, i tend to stay at the crease. I could do with all the batting and runs i can get

    Bah! Just do what you think is right on a consistent basis.

    I don't believe people have to walk, but I would encourage it. It's good for the game, IMO.
