You cannot keep #IPL and Controversy away for a long time. Just when fans were happy to see a fair and controversy-less #IPL2016 a controversial comedy of error has surfaced. The man in question is none other than Ravi Shastri.
Match 32, KKR vs KXIP: At the customary toss, KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir flipped the coin in air and KXIP captain Murali Vijay called heads.
As the coin landed, the match referee Amit Sharma announced that it was tails, which meant KKR had won the toss.
In a moment of confusion however, the former Team India director declared Murali Vijay as the winner, offering him the first option.
The two captains were clearly taken aback and were left in an awkward position as they shook hands.
Watch the incident yourself and decide:

While several social media users have termed the incident ‘fishy’, there is of course the possibility that Shastri did not hear Vijay clearly due to massive crowd at Eden Gardens. What do you feel?
