Former India spinner Murali Kartik caused controversy in the English County Championship on Thursday when he ran out a batsman who had backed up too far down the pitch

Kartik, playing for Surrey against Somerset the county he left at the end of last season ran out 20-year-old Alex Barrow when the non-striker was out of his ground. Surrey captain Gareth Batty was offered the chance to call the batsman back by umpire Peter Hartley but refused, leaving the official with no choice but to uphold the appeal and send the batsman on his way on the third day of this four-day First Division clash at Taunton, Somerset’s headquarters.
