New Delhi: England stand-in skipper Jos Buttler is regarded as the finest wicket-keeper batsman to have played in limited overs cricket for his side but he didn't have the best cricketing atmosphere in 2nd ODI against Bangladesh.
In the match on Sunday, Bangladesh emerged victorious by 34 runs, but faced criticism as their players failed to show any respect to the opposition.
A particular incident which rose eyebrows was when all the players went for the cerimonial handshake, Tamim Iqbal and Jonny Baristow had an on-field argument and some heated words were exchanged between them. To offer some resistance, Ben Stokes and Shakib Al Hasan got invloved in the situation.
Instead of trying to calm things down, Stokes too got involed in an argument with the Iqbal.
In the end, both opted not to shake hands with each other and there was hardly any effort to cap-off the issue.
Here's a video of that particular incident-
Ben Stokes also tweeted afterwards-
Congrats to Bangladesh on the win tonight,outplayed us,what I won't stand for is someone putting a shoulder to my teammate at handshakes

After winning the toss, Buttler had decided to bowl first. Bangladesh posted 238/8 in their quota of overs, thanks to little cameo of 44 from skipper Mashrafe Mortaza in the end.
When England came out to chase the target, they were reduced to 26/4 inside 10 overs. Jonny Bairstow along with skipper added 79 runs for the fifth wicket.
In the 27th over, when Taskin Ahmed struck Buttler on the pads and appealed, Umpire shaked his head said no. Mortaza and Co opted for the DRS (decision review system), which eventually ruled England's skipper out.
While Buttler was on his way to pavilion, Mahmudullah said something to provoke the calm batsman. This in turn created a mess, which was solved by the umpires.

The series is now levelled at 1-1 with the decider to be played at Chittagong on Wednesday.
Buttler, 26, was made the captian of England ODI team, as Eoin Morgan backed out of the tour citing security reasons.
