On the walking thing, I've never played the game properly, but I can easily imagine situations where the batsman themselves is unsure if they clipped pad or ball with their bat. And for those very, very fine snicks, I can also believe you might not be sure if you even felt something through your gloves. So I've got no problem with batsmen of any stripe not walking in such situations. I mean, it's not uncommon for batsmen to burn an lbw review when they think they've edged it, but haven't, right?

On the other hand, clearly edging it and then standing there hoping the camera angles on a catch low to the ground will be inconclusive (when on the field it looks out) is borderline cheating.
