Even though it was not specified what Jos Buttler’s misconduct was but it is understood that his reaction to being run out may have had something to do with it.
Buttler was involved in a terrible mix-up with Jaiswal as the young Indian opener kept on running despite his England batter raising his hand to signal his reluctance to go for that early single. In the end, Buttler decided to run and was caught short by Andre Russell’s direct hit.

Jaiswal was sparkling in his strokeplay, combining bravado and a fearless approach to hit 13 fours and five sixes at a strike rate of 208.51 to be 98 not out.
