Eng­land urge But­tler to stay out of trou­ble

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

ENG­LAND cricket coach Trevor Bayliss said yes­ter­day he hoped cap­tain Jos But­tler would stay out of trou­ble af­ter he was given an of­fi­cial warn­ing for his on-field be­hav­iour dur­ing Sun­day’s 34-run loss to Bangladesh.

The In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil ( ICC) cau­tioned But­tler over his re­ac­tion to Mashrafe Mor­taza and Sab­bir Rah­man’s cel­e­bra­tions fol­low­ing his dis­missal af­ter a TV re­view which proved to be de­ci­sive.

Af­ter Eng­land made a poor start in their re­ply to Bangladesh’s to­tal of 238-8, But­tler was threat­en­ing to turn the match on its head with a run-a-ball in­nings of 57 which was ended in con­tro­ver­sial fash­ion.

The on-field um­pire had ini­tially turned down Taskin Ahmed’s lbw ap­peal against But­tler, but Bangladesh sought a tele­vi­sion re­view which con­firmed the ball hit him plumb in his back foot and left Eng­land 123-7.

The ver­dict trig­gered lively cel­e­bra­tions in the Bangladesh camp, with sev­eral play­ers ex­chang­ing words with the bats­man as he made his way back to the pavil­ion, forc­ing the um­pires to im­me­di­ately in­ter­vene.

“It is not the first time we have seen it in in­ter­na­tional cricket and prob­a­bly won’t be the last,” Bayliss told re­porters in Chit­tagong.

“He (But­tler) got a slap on the wrist and I am sure he will be do­ing his best to stay out of trou­ble in the fu­ture.” – AFP
