Dubai - Words exchanged between Buttler and Bangladesh players

England captain Jos Buttler said he was disappointed with the way Bangladesh players celebrated his wicket in England's 34-run defeat to the home team in the second match of the one-day series on Sunday.
Buttler was given lbw to Thaskin Ahmed by the third umpire after on-field umpire had ruled him not out.
A visibly angry Buttler went to some of the vocal Bangladesh players after the third umpire's decision, but he was stopped by the on-field umpires.

With the series now tied at 1-1, this was the last thing England needed against a dangerous team. It seemed England captain still hadn't overcome the incident when he came for the post-match press-conference.
"I thought it was a little bit over the top. 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," Buttler said after the match.
"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.
"For me personally, that was the first bit, but that is part and parcel of the game," the England captain added.
Meanwhile, Mashrafe Mortaza, the Bangladesh captain, promised that he would do everything to keep things under control in the next match.
"I don't know who spoke to Buttler. I was focusing on the review that I took, and then I got excited by the decision," Mortaza said at the post-match press conference.
"Sometimes, a lot of things happen in the heat of the moment. But players from both sides should control themselves."
However, the England captain said he also regretted his action on the field.  "Maybe in hindsight I could just walk away but it is what it is. Emotions were running high and obviously they were delighted to get the wicket. Maybe I should have just walked off," Buttler said.
"It's certainly much more emotional as captain and you try to react, but it's something I will learn if I do it much more. I only have one more. It's something I will try to improve on, trying to keep levelheadedness, not letting your emotions get too high or too low." (KT Sports)
