England National Cricket Team captain Jos Buttler and South Africa National Cricket Team star batter Rassie van der Dussen were engaged in a verbal banter during the second ODI of the three-match series at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein on Sunday, January 29.
The heated verbal altercation between the players took place during the 19th over of the second innings when the Proteas were chasing 343 in the match. The war of words between the star players was caught on the stump mic and a video of the incident has gone viral on social media.

Rassie Van der Dussen, who was batting on 21 off 13 balls at that stage, inside-edged a ball from Adil onto his pad and up into the air. When Jos Buttler went for the catch, the Proteas batter ended up blocking the wicket-keeper as he was looking where the ball went. This led to the gloveman being frustrated.
Jos Buttler gave it back to Van der Dussen and while going back to his keeping position the England captain pushed the Proteas batter.

“I’m trying to get to the ball,” Buttler said. “What’s your problem Rassie? It’s not all about you all the time.”
Van der Dussen then replied: “No, it’s about you.”
“I’m allowed to try and catch the ball,” added Buttler. “What do you want me to do?” At this point, the umpires intervened, with one of them shouting: “Okay, calm down!”
