    Should International Batsmen Walk?


    No they should take the Underground.


    Sorry for the corny one liner. But everytime I see that thread topic this is what I say to myself.

    They can do what they like imo, unless of course the decision goes against Australia

    have seen him stay in a couple of times when he nicked them, tbh... not sure when, but I seem to remember that. Also, didn't he claim Sachin caught when he had clearly put the ball on the ground? I guess by cheating he meant, not doing other stuff. Not walking is not cheating in my opinion, as long as you don't complain about bad decisions.

    Walk when you think its obvious, otherwise stand your ground and look at the fielders appealing as if they are idiots. ofc, I am talking about backyard cricket

    Agree with this. It can take a long time to get a bat, you don't give it up easily.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Except, of course, walk when you fancy walking, but stand when the game's in a tight situation.

    I can't believe that, and I certainly can't believe he ever claimed a catch he knew hadn't carried.

    Anyways, I've always believed not walking is cheating, simple as, by not walking you're trying to get away with something which in the laws is out.

    Obviously, the worst thing (and it's something most people do at the current time) is not walking and complaining about bad decisions. Sooner we get an Umpiring system which means batsmen have roughly 0 chance of getting away with anything and walk simply to speed the game up the better.

    As long as the right decision is made nobody complains.

    I doubt it'll be on there TBH, not much SA-recorded stuff is. Will have a scout around some old match-reports.
