Bangladesh Cricket: Buttler boiling, Tamim bumping

During the second ODI of the 3-match series between Bangladesh and England on October 9, there were moments that compelled some cricketers to regret their behaviour on the field.

Jos Buttler had made 57 and his dismissal left England reeling at 127-7. Perhaps in anticipation of their impending victory, the Bangladeshi players celebrated with fervour but Buttler took exception to their actions and headed their way while exchanging heated words, forcing the umpires to intervene, reports The Cricket Lounge.

Buttler however did say that he was unhappy with the ‘over the top’ celebrations, before he went on to express his regret at his own actions. 

"I thought it was a little bit over the top," Buttler said. "I don't mind guys celebrating just together. I know that's obviously a very passionate cricket country and the players are very passionate and I have got no problem with that. I was just a little bit disappointed in the fashion they celebrated. I don't mind them celebrating a wicket but to run and celebrate in my face… Rightly they are happy to get a wicket but there is no need to run in someone's face and celebrate."


Ben Stokes was involved in a post-match war of words with some of the opposition players and accused a Bangladesh player of shoulder-barging his England team-mates on Twitter. 

Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal bumped shoulders with an English player while crossing paths after shaking hands at the conclusion of the match. While the incident seemed harmless enough and completely unintentional, stoked Stokes’s anger.
