rogers: broad was right not to walk; CRICKET.

Byline: DEAN WILSON in Perth

STUART BROAD has found an Aussie ally in Chris Rogers who agrees he was RIGHT not to walk during the Ashes.

The England star (above) has reiterated his commitment to not walking and claimed he will do the same again if need be during the return series Down Under.

Broad's edge to slip via the keeper's gloves at Trent Bridge was one of the key moments of the series and was referred to as 'blatant cheating' by Aussie coach Darren Lehmann.

But Broad stood his ground then, stood his ground with Lehmann after the series and is standing his ground now, something Aussie opening batsman Rogers (above) agrees with.

"I don't wish I'd walked, if I had we'd have lost the game," said Broad. "I've never been a walker, why would I walk if the umpire hasn't given me out? "I'd do the same in Brisbane. I won't nick it though.. I'll hit it for four!" Rogers added: "I can't blame him. The innings I got a hundred I gloved one and the keeper ran round and caught it. I knew I'd gloved it but I didn't walk. I wouldn't walk if I didn't have to."
