Cape Town - Controversy reigned in the Indian Premier League on Monday when Ravichandran Ashwin of the Kings Punjab XI ran-out Jos Buttler of the Rajasthan Royals as he backed up at a crucial part in the run chase.
After Chris Gayle had blasted Kings XI Punjab to 184/4, Buttler was leading the Royals in pursuit of the total. While Buttler was backing up at the non-striker's end, Ashwin stopped in his delivery stride and whipped off the bails.
The decision was sent to the third umpire with Buttler found well out of his crease.
