England’s ODI defeat to Bangladesh was rounded off with a hasty encounter between the two sets of players after the game.

It was a 34-run victory for the Tigers in the second one-day international in Dhaka, with the three-match series now tied at 1-1.

Tensions began to heat up after England were dismissed for 204 when England’s Jos Buttler looked visibly effected by something said to him from the home side when given out LBW.

Things started well for England, but following a nightmare batting spell, they ended up on the losing side.

After Bangladesh slumped to 39-3 in the 14th over, Mahmudullah’s 75 and Mashrafe Mortaza’s knock regained hope for the Tigers at 238-8.

Chris Woakes dismissed Imrul Kayes and Tamim Iqbal following his double strike, but Mahmudallah added 50 runs with Mushfiqur Rahim, raising 48 with Mosaddek Hossain.

After Mortaza hit three sixes before running himself out in the final over, and then dismissed England trio James Vince, Jason Roy, and Ben Stokes, while Shakib Al Hasan sent Ben Duckett back to the pavilion, reducing England to 26-4 inside 10 overs.

Despite efforts to close in on Bangladesh by Buttler and Bairstow, when they added 79 runs, Taskin Ahmed put the match to bed.

He dismissed Bairstow before ending Buttler’s run-a-ball knock which was subsequently followed by him dismissing Woakes.

Adil Radhid’s 33 not out and Jake Ball’s 28 proved only to be consolations for England.

Despite a good test match, the game ended on rough terms with Buttler and Stokes at the centre of an altercation with the Bangladesh players after the match.

As the hosts wildered away in celebration, words were exchanged between Butler and a couple of the Bangladesh players. As he made his way off the field, team-mate Stokes joined in the action before being separated from the situation.

Buttler later claimed the way the hosts celebrated lead to the confrontation: “I was disappointed in the way they celebrated. Grown men. It's an emotional game. Disappointing for me.”

The deciding match will be played on Wednesday in Chittagong.
