Fiji Sun - - Sport -

London: Eng­land cap­tain Jos But­tler did not do any­thing wrong when he re­acted an­grily dur­ing the sec­ond one-day in­ter­na­tional against Bangladesh, says for­mer skip­per Michael Vaughan. But­tler was rep­ri­manded for re­act­ing to what he called a “send-off ” by Bangladesh af­ter his dis­missal. The 26-year-old was out lbw as Eng­land, chas­ing 238, were all out for 204. “He didn’t re­act be­cause he was cap­tain - he thought Bangladesh stepped on his turf,” Vaughan told BBC Ra­dio 5 live. “I don’t think he did any­thing wrong. When the op­po­si­tion comes at you what are you to do?” But­tler and some Bangladesh play­ers were seen ap­proach­ing each other af­ter the wicket - which came off a re­view - and the um­pires had to step in.
