Jos Buttler: England skipper ‘disappointed’ with Bangladesh celebrations

Skipper Jos Buttler was “disappointed” by Bangladesh’s pointed celebrations of his dismissal in England’s 34-run defeat in Dhaka on Sunday. Buttler fell lbw to Taskin Ahmed for 57 to leave England 123-7, chasing 239.

“You don’t have to run up to a guy. I’m disappointed to get out, but emotions were running high,” said Buttler. “I was a little bit disappointed in the fashion they celebrated. Mainly the way they celebrated by running towards me and giving me a bit of a send-off.”

The umpires intervened in the confrontation which followed the dismissal as several fielders approached Buttler. He added: “They were obviously delighted to get the wicket, maybe I should have just walked away.” That animosity then appeared to spill over after the match, with vice-captain Ben Stokes seeming to confront Tigers opener Tamim Iqbal as other players shook hands.(BBC,2016)
