Dhaka - Stand-in England captain Jos Buttler said he
regretted his angry reaction after his dismissal during Sunday's second one-day
international 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.
The on-field umpire had initially turned down the leg-before
appeal of Taskin Ahmed against Buttler, but Bangladesh sought a television
review, which confirmed that the ball hit him plumb in his back foot and left
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.
Buttler 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.
