Broad says 'right not to walk' after 'infamous' Trent Bridge not-out decision

Sydney, Oct 28 (ANI): England fast bowler Stuart Broad has said that he was right not to walk in the infamous Trent Bridge incident after he was given not out by the umpire in what was an obvious edge off an Ashton Agar delivery, to slip.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, given not out by umpire Aleem Dar, Broad was spared that decision being overruled because Australia had already used their two reviews, and he went on to share in a crucial 138-run partnership with England's player of the series Ian Bell as the hosts took a 1-0 lead in Nottingham.

Broad said that his comment on that whole incident was that he could name 18 or 19 players who played in an Ashes series, nicked it and did not walk.

He added that it was a really interesting debate but it got blown out of proportion because the Australians were frustrated that they had wasted two referrals.

Broad conceded later in the series that he knew he had edged the ball, which deflected off wicketkeeper Brad Haddin's gloves before ending in the hands of Australian captain Michael Clarke, the report said. (ANI)
