Walking at Different Strokes

Congratulations on the new assignment. Albeit belatedly, but I have been away from blogging for a while.

SB: Good to see you again. I was wondering where you'd gotten to! Thanks for the good wishes.

In backyard/park cricket (or any informal, unumpired game of cricket in general really) I am all for walking and think if you don't you are dishounouring the game of cricket. However in professional cricket I think the umpire has a job to do and if he gets it wrong that's the batsman's good luck. Many time they will get it wrong the other way and they cannot argue then so they need to take the good luck when they get it to compensate I believe.

CR: Thanks for the comment. Welcome to the blog. I agree entirely; I think in professional cricket, the stakes have become high enough to prompt the behavior of not-walking, and I don't feel like castigating cricketers for it. But in park cricket, you must.
