Let the players decide everything in the spirit of the game . No need for the umpires or DRS I suppose

@Kumar Wasnani - Agree that there is no rule that the batsman should walk, but why are the fielders seen as villains when they claim bump catches? Shouldnt the same rule apply for batsmen as well? So when the decision is left to the umpire (although the batsman clearly knows that he nicked it), why do they cry foul when the umpire delivers a wrong decision? Plenty of loop holes in the rules eh?

The walking should be seen in the light of the event that Brads dad banned ramdin for claiming a false catch. Well, if it is left to the umpire to find whether its an edge then well, it is the same for the umpire to find whether its a good catch or not. Dont ask the fielder or let the batsman walk.

Broad should walk in spirit of game.

As if OZs will walk !!! Broad is a tail ender at least. You dont have any right to talk about walking when legend like Ponting or current capt Clarke are not good walkers. there is no need to point out an occasion as there are so many!!!

Oh come on...there is no law stating that a batsman should walk!! The umpires are here to do a job. There are numerous times when batsmen are wrongly given out, does that mean that the batsman should neglect the decision and remain at the crease!!!???

Good one. Michael Holding had a valid point in comparing the Ramdin's incident with that of Broad's. Both of them are guilty of acting against the spirit of the game.

this is supposed to be a gentlemen's game, huh....even the english guys who invented the game could not keep the spirit of the game ....Broad should have walked away coz it ws so evident dat it was a edge...

It was a shocker of a decision from Dar but Broad should have walked off in the spirit of game that would have been great and could have made the game more exciting....
