Buttler stump mic comments to Philander sparks outrage on Twitter


England wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler was heard commenting disgraceful to South African seamer Vernon Philander on the fifth day of the second Test at Newlands in Cape Town.

The fans on Twitter are angry over this act by Jos Buttler and are questioning International Cricket Council (ICC) on why he has not been fine or ban yet.

The heated moment happened when Philander didn’t move out of the way as a throw by England skipper Joe Root came into Buttler, leaving the keeper unsighted as he gathered the ball.

One fan has termed Jos Buttler as a disgrace to the gentlemen game.

Most of the fans want ICC to ban him for at least one Test but the way ICC has deal this issue has portrayed their dual standards.

One of the fans appreciated Philanders’ action as he showed his class and ignored Buttler.


It must be noted that England won the second Test courtesy all-rounder Ben Stokes heroics and level the series 1-1 with the third Test slated to start from 16th January in Port Elizabeth.
