In this Champions Trophy, there have been three examples, each one showing there's life left in this game yet. In England's first game against Sri Lanka, Angelo Mathews was recalled after a collision with Graham Onions contributed to the all-rounder being run out. A couple of days later, Andrew Strauss denied Graeme Smith the use of a runner as he was cramping, on the grounds that cramps were a matter of conditioning and not injury. The on-field umpires and the ICC backed up this decision.
In a must-win game, New Zealand recalled Paul Collingwood after having run him out when he wandered out of his crease. Sure, Collingwood was not attempting a run, but going by the law, New Zealand were well within their rights to claim the dismissal. That Vettori took the right path, in a crunch game, especially with Collingwood having failed to do so against New Zealand at the Oval last year, was admirable.
