It's clear that things are against him but Ricky won't walk just yet.
The shouted appeals from the bolwer and keeper will never an off movement get.
The pavilion's just not a destination where Ricky is thinking to jet.
There may be nice things on offer back there, a beer and a cheese baguette.
But in cases where there's the tiniest doubt the Aussie need not break a sweat.
An umpire that's thinking of raising a finger is only a minimal threat.
Until there's no doubt in anyone's mind Ricky won't get upset.
From all the way back in history and instructions from back in the nets.
When the chances are slimmer than microns then Ponting's not walking don't frett.
As sure as the Aussies bowl underarm balls.. Ricky won't walk.. You can bet!
