Buttler regrets fiery exchange after dismissal against Bangladesh

Johannesburg [South Africa], Oct.10 :England stand-in skipper Jos Buttler has regretted his angry reaction after his dismissal during the side's 34-run defeat in the second ODI of the three-match series against Bangladesh in Dhaka last evening.

Chasing a target of 239 runs, Buttler was trying to provide his side with some resistance and looked threatening with some lusty stroke-play after his Bangladesh counterpart Mashrafe Mortaza tore apart the visitors' top orders to leave them reeling at 26-4 inside 10 overs.

Buttler was batting at 57 when a television review confirmed the dismissal of the England skipper after an on-field umpire turned down the leg-before appeal of Taskin Ahmed.

While leaving the field, Buttler was seen engaging in an argument with some of the Bangladeshi players, thus forcing the umpires to immediately intervene to resolve the dispute.

Reflecting on the incident, Buttler admitted he should have just walked off the field instead of reacting on Bangladeshi players, who were seen celebrating on the field after taking the wicket.

"Emotions were running high and obviously (they were) delighted to get the wicket. Maybe I should have just walked off. Maybe it's something in the hindsight I was disappointed with the reaction... maybe I should have taken it up (in) a different way," the 26-year-old was quoted as saying by Sport24.

England were eventually bundled out for 204 runs after the last wicket pair of Adil Rashid (33 not out) and Jake Ball (28) added 45 runs to raise their side's hopes.

The three-match ODI series is currently levelled at 1-1, with the third and final match slated to be played in Chittagong on Wednesday.
