England bitter after loss to Bangladesh

Press AssociationPress Association 10/10/2016 David Charlesworth

England captain Jos Buttler and his deputy Ben Stokes were involved in separate spats as Bangladesh claimed a 34-run win in an ill-tempered second one-day international at Dhaka.

Buttler reacted to what he thought were overexuberant celebrations from several Bangladesh players and a heated confrontation ensued, with umpires forced to intervene by sending the Englishman on his way on Sunday.

While Buttler had no problems with the hosts celebrating his downfall, which effectively ended any hopes of an England victory, he was irked by them doing it in such close proximity to him.

"I was just a little bit disappointed in the fashion they celebrated. Mainly just the way they celebrated by running towards me and giving me a bit of a send-off," Buttler said.

"You don't have to run up to a guy. I'm disappointed to get out, but emotions were running high, they were obviously delighted to get the wicket, maybe I should have just walked away."

The action boiled over after the game as England's vice-captain Ben Stokes seemed to confront Tamim Iqbal.

Stokes later tweeted: "Congrats to Bangladesh on the win tonight, outplayed us, what I won't stand for is someone putting a shoulder to my teammate at handshakes."

Buttler played a lone hand in keeping England's hopes of overhauling Bangladesh's 8-238 alive with a run-a-ball 57.

The three-match series is tied at 1-1 and the sides will face in Chittagong on Wednesday.
