England won the second test of four match series by defeating South Africa with 189 runs. They managed to level the series as 1-1 with the Poteas. Though Ben Stokes helped his team with this outstanding performance, Team England grabbed headlines for completely a wrong reason. A incident that happened when South African player Vernon Philander was on strike disappointed the fans of the game cricket.
England wicket keeper Jos Buttler’s attitude towards Vernon irked the fans who are expressing their hatred towards him. When team South Africa was on a defensive mode to draw the game. The incident took place during the final session. In the over bowled by Dom Bess, a throw of skipper Joe Root from short mid off to wicket keeper Jos Buttler was blocked by Philander without his knowledge.
A visibly frustrated Buttler started abusing the batsman which caught on the stump mic. “Fu***ng Move, Movie. Fu***ng Knobhead” was heard in the stump mic. When Philander staring at Buttler Ben Stokes can be heard saying “Don’t Stare him out, he has a point Vern”

Other fans who saw the video said that Buttler deserves what Ravichandran Ashwin did to him in the IPL tournament by pointing out the familiar “Mankad” incident. Few fans of Indian cricket questioned if Buttler has the guts to the same with Kohli on field.
