    Should International Batsmen Walk?

    Should they walk or should they let the umpires decide? Obviously I play at a lower level of cricket, but I always walk that's the way it has always been if I am out then I walk.

    If they want to: yes.
    If they don't: no.

    I don't hold it against them either way.

    Well, you can't have them driving around in golf carts on the field. They'd better walk.

    I know when I played lower league club cricket I was always told to walk but that may have been down to member of my team umpired for our innings.

    Would you turn yourself in to the police if you were speeding?

    Umpires decision imo, on the basis that....you could be given out by an umpire for 3 innings in a row incorrectly...but then feather one through to the keeper but the umpire misses it....

    these decisions balance themselves out over time, obey the umpire says i.

    No-one should ever preach otherwise.

    However, there's no reason at all not to walk if you nick one if you feel that is right. And I do, personally. So did many in bygone days. Sadly, less at the current time.
