WAUGH WOULDN’T WALK… IS THAT ALSO NOT CRICKET?
Steve Waugh as captain would refuse to walk (and it wasn't just his dodgy calf) until he was given out by an umpire. Because a batsman cannot be given out until the opposing team appeals, Waugh would stand there waiting for an appeal he hoped might not come despite a clear nick and a clear catch.
Other batsmen automatically walked once they realised they were out fairly and squarely.
Was it Waugh who started all this un-golf-like cheating?
The game has changed.
1 Every appeal should go upstairs, they will slow-motion and track it anyway.
2 Leave the bloody ball alone! Shining one side is interfering with its flight. Stop it!
3 And stop the sledging. There are mikes everywhere. It’s not fair to say you’ve given a batsman’s wife, three of his daughters and his mother a good rogering last night, even if it's true.
Okay, then there will be absolutely no reason to watch a stupid bloody boring game with bloody stupid rules!
At least the Yanks had the brains to convert it to baseball where you can only alter the ball's flight with skill.
