    I walk... *shrug*

    In fairness, Warne's overappealing was dire.

    It's not like Warne did not like the decision and walked off the field as a protest, and failed to come back onto the field. If he over appeals then he can be fined
    You know it makes sense.

    Why would I want to score less runs than I possibly could?

    I used to think like that but I felt like a fair dog lol. Fairly often don't get umpires in our grade & league and I see some absolute shockers.

    Walking is such a fascinating subject because those who sit in the "the Umpire is there to do a job and I'm not going to walk" are INVARIABLY hypocrites, and there's always one way or another that someone (eg Mikey Holding in a not-so-recent Sky discussion) manages to dredge-up an example of such.

    Increasingly, I genuinely hope for a cricket future where a patently incorrect decision is a thing of the past, then maybe cricketers will give-up on refusing to walk realising they're never going to get away with anything.

    I always walk, always. For that reason, I get very angry with opposing players when they don't do the same.

    And quite justifiably, too.

    Just because some are willing to push the Spirit to the extreme, doesn't mean they should be allowed to get away with it.

    to the people who dont walk and want "as much run as possible" well then atleast dont complain when the decisions goes against you later. this is the kind of things that makes it tougher for the umpires...either listen to the umpire always and never show displeasure or anything about any decisions or always do the right thing and walk etc then you have the right to get mad at wrong decisions

    I've never got a bad decision as of yet, nor have I ever been given out when I wasn't, however I have shouldered arms to a ball (incidentally was a hat-trick ball) which cut back a mile and skimmed the top of the bails, but they didn't fall off.

    ^^^Ditto (to the first bit, not the hattrick bit), I'm simply not a good enough batsman to be involved in any luck-related stuff (though I have been dropped once or twice).
