Run out

Run out is a method of dismissal in cricket, governed by Law 38 of the Laws of Cricket.[1] A run out usually occurs when the batters are attempting to run between the wickets, and the fielding team succeed in getting the ball to one wicket before a batter has crossed the crease line near the wicket. The incomplete run the batters were attempting does not count.

Michael Clarke avoids being run out during the Third Test against South Africa at the SCG in January 2009.
