    Icon8 Did Shaun Pollock cheat?

    If you watched the match between England and South Africa Las night did you think that the run out of Kevin pieterson was caused by shaun pollack deliberately or do you think that it was kp's fault?

    The code of conduct says:
    Level 2
    The Offences set out at 2.1 to 2.11 below are Level 2 Offences. The Penalty for a Level 2 Offence shall
    be a fine of the equivalent of between 50% of the Player or Official’s match fee up to their full match fee
    and/or a 1 Test Match or 2 ODI Match ban
    2.1 Showing serious dissent at an umpire’s decision..
    2.2 Breach of the Logo Policy relating to a commercial logo or a player’s bat logo as defined therein.
    2.3 Serious public criticism of, or inappropriate comment on a match related incident or match
    official.
    2.4 Inappropriate and deliberate physical contact between Players in the course of play.
    2.5 Charging or advancing towards the umpire in an aggressive manner when appealing.
    [2.6 Deliberate and malicious distraction or obstruction on the field of play (this supplements and does
    not replace ICC Standard Test Match and ODI Playing Conditions clauses 42.2 and 42.3

    2.7 Throwing the ball at or near a Player, umpire or official in an inappropriate and/or dangerous
    manner.


    I think that pollack looked at kp and deliberately ran in front of him and I do not understand why the umpires took no action.
    Look at the slow mo of the incident and you can clearly see that pollack is looking at kp not the ball.
    If he is then he is a cheat and should be punished accordingly.
    The outcome of the game was probably seriously affected...........

    The replays showed it clearly wasn't delibrate, iirc Pollock did not once look at KP in that play and had his eyes on the ball the whole time.

    There was no way Pollock blocked KP intentionaly. It was shown a zillion times from all kinds of angles and it was always the same. It happened spontaneously. As was his immediate concern for KP.

    Kp's response to Pollock showing concern for his 'hurt' also showed that even KP did not think Pollock was to blame for it.

    It was unfortunate for KP but completely withoyt blame was Pollock.

    I don't think he did it delibrately, but I dunno if that makes it OK. If you follow.
    Or something.

    I'm not sure either way, i don't think he was being malicious but looking at the replay i can't really see why he was running the way he was.

    Was Pietersen's fault either way. Not supposed to run straight down the middle of the pitch. If he ran were he was supposed to, Pollock wouldn't have been able to do what he did, be it by accident or on purpose.

    From what i saw of it, Pollock may have moved in front of him, but he was technically moving towards the ball so you cant exactly say he MEANT to knock him over.

    Like what someone else said, Pietersen should not have been running down the middle of the pitch like he did.

    If he were running where he was meant to, he never would have become caught up with him.

    The run out was entirely Pietersen's fault. If he was going hard from the start he would have made it, with or without bat/balance. I respect Pollock more than virtually any cricketer in the world, and aside from that bit of bias, the video clearly shows that there was no cheating there.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    AND , if you look at it carefully, Pollock wasn't looking at KP at all. he had his back towards him (KP) where is the question of being deliberate about it.

    As to why he was moving as he was, well a throw had been made and he, as the bowler would automatically react to trying to get to the wicket (to help effect a run out) or to intercept the ball - either to help in the run out or to help avoid over throws. It is spontaneous and MUST be the reaction of any but the lazy and bad cricketer.

    Pollock was just responding to his instinct and moving to intercept the ball. The fact that he was awkwardly placed would make his movements awkward and out of control which is what happened. KP just came and hit him when he was himself off balance in an effort to move quickly.

    Reminds me of Tendulkar Runout At Kolkata 1999. Many Indians still believe it as cheating by Pakistan (and by Akhtar).

    To be honest, I was just glad to see Pietersen get knocked flat on his arse.
