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?

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...........
