    Not Pollock's fault for mine. Unfortunate for England, but them's the breaks. If Pietersen had ran hard and straight instead of trying to get himself between the fielder & the stumps he'd have been fine.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Thats KP's fault. His plan was to escape the run-out by running on the pitch(It shortens the distance to be covered). Pollock was just trying to gather the ball.
    When asked what the IPL means for seasoned pros like him, Dravid smiled and neatly deflected the question: it is a different world altogether, he said. "The other day I walked the ramp as part of a promotional event. When I started my career, I never imagined this would be part of a cricketer's life!"

    I think its more a question of it being in the spirit of the game ( pakistan & england appealing for a run-out against Tendulkar and the Pieterson )

    Pietersen has reportedly been getting bigger helmets every season.

    Hopefully some people got that "subtle" joke.

    Looking at a video clip on YouTube, I think it's very obvious that Shaun Pollock didn't intentionally trip up Kevin Pietersen, and there was definitely no malice involved. These things happen, it's unfortunate, but like many posters have said, Pietersen should not have been running down the pitch.
