The memories of Ravichandran Ashwin running out Jos Buttler at the non-striker’s end were revisited once again during Rajasthan Royals’ IPL 2023 game against Punjab Kings in Guwahati on Wednesday. On the fourth ball of the seventh over by Ashwin, Shikhar Dhawan backed up too far at the non-striker’s end as the India spin great stopped midway and stared at the PBKS opener. There was a smile on both their faces. As the incident happened, the camera panned towards Jos Buttler. During the 2019 IPL, Ashwin, then playing for PBKS, had ran out RR’s Buttler and the incident created lot of controversy.
