I don't think they did at the time, but there was certainly a lot of controversy afterwards.
Personally, I think there was fault on both sides.
Murali wandering off down the pitch while the ball was still in the process of being fielded was crazy and asking for trouble.
Taking the bails off and appealing for a run out when the batsman was obviously not trying to complete a run was not in the spirit of cricket.
