    I just saw the Hafeez run out now, I just don't see a counter-argument. He looked over his shoulder, then made a dart straight at the wickets!

    He still prevented south africa from making a possibly legitimate run out. So the proof is there... He ran in such a line to make a throw directly at the stumps inpossible.

    Yeah; they changed the playing conditions for that exact situation. You can't do that. Out.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    That is clearly out per the new rules. No element of doubt.

    but this was a legit strategy before the rule came into place. I remember commentators even praising batsmen for using their presence of mind
    Get well soon Yuvi!!

    According to Misbah, Hafeez wasn't looking behind to see where the throw would come from and he ran that way to shorten the distance rather than intentionally come in the way of the throw.

    Nonsense. The lines are perpendicular to the pitch. There is no way that running in any line other than parallel to the pitch is shortening the distance - in fact it lengthens it.

    This is what Hafeez thought in that split second.

    Ya It was pretty obvious he was running to cover the line of throw.

    Every clip I've seen shows Hafeez looking back over his shoulder then running straight at the wickets. Its clear as daylight what he did.

    Yes, in turning to look over his shoulder his path was changed slightly - he did not, as you claim, look over his shoulder and then change course but the 2 things were combined.

    According to your judgement. According to Hafeez and Misbah he never looked at AB.

    Even i think he wasnt looking at de villiers. He looked at his left side to see if anybody collects the ball and throws at the non- strikes end because he knew he was so late to take off. When he saw nobody doing that, he was expecting the throw to come from the strikers end. That was when he deviated from his path and accelerated.

    Who knows. I guess it was the umpires call and so he was given out.
