No apology for England, says Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza

Chittagong: Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza Tuesday refused to apologise to England for his team's celebrations after Jos Buttler's dismissal during Sunday's second one-day international match in Mirpur.

The International Cricket Council fined Mortaza and batsman Sabbir Rahman 20 per cent of their match fees because match officials deemed the duo had overstepped the mark.

The ICC also cautioned Buttler, who had reacted angrily to the dismissal following a TV replay.

"Actually we didn't do anything wrong so we shouldn't apologise," Mortaza told reporters in Chittagong.

"We just celebrated what we've felt. We don't have to say sorry for that. Whatever happened, match referee was there (to judge it)."

England showed their anger even after the match, as Ben Stokes apparently refused to shake hands with Tamim Iqbal and engaged in a heated argument with the Bangladesh opener.

Mortaza said he had seen video footage of the row and defended Iqbal.
