Jos Buttler regrets reaction after dismissal

DHAKA: England stand-in captain Jos Buttler said he regretted his angry reaction after his dismissal during Sunday’s second ODI against Bangladesh in Dhaka, which his team lost by 34 runs.

Buttler was staging an England revival and looked threatening with some lusty stroke-play after a three-wicket burst by his Bangladesh counterpart Mashrafe Mortaza left the visitors reeling at 26-4 inside 10 overs.

But when television umpire confirmed the dismissal of Buttler at 57 in England’s chase of 238-8, it triggered wild celebration among the Bangladesh fielders.

England beat Bangladesh by 21 runs in first ODI

The on-field umpire had initially turned down the lbw appeal of Taskin Ahmed against Buttler, but the hosts sought a television review, which confirmed that the ball hit him plumb in his back foot and left England 123-7.

Before he left the field, the English skipper was seen engaged in an argument with some of the Bangladeshi players, forcing the umpires to immediately intervene.

“Emotions were running high and obviously (they were) delighted to get the wicket. Maybe I should have just walked off,” Buttler said after the match. “Maybe it’s something in the hindsight I was disappointed with the reaction… maybe I should have taken it up [in] a different way,” he said.

All-round Mortaza inspires Bangladesh

The 26-year-old was vague when asked if he believed the Bangladeshi fielders had crossed the line during their celebration after his dismissal. “Potentially, I am sure you guys can judge that for me,” he said.

England were finally all out for 204 runs but not before last wicket pair Adil Rashid (33 not out) and Jake Ball (28) racked up 45 runs to raise English hopes.

The third and final ODI will be played in Chittagong on Wednesday.
