Expecting confirmation that @josbuttler will be fined by @ICC for his comments to Vernon Philander.— Adam Mountford (@tmsproducer) January 8, 2020
Buttler was heard using bad language on the stump microphone.

England’s @josbuttler says it’s a “huge blow” to lose @jimmy9 from the tour.— Test Match Special (@bbctms) January 12, 2020

Would you pick Woakes, Wood, Archer or Overton for the 3rd Test? #bbccricket #SAvENG pic.twitter.com/7NyHeW81ZD
