England’s Jos Buttler has been fined 15% of his match fee and disciplined by the International Cricket Council following his outburst at Vernon Philander.

Buttler was keeping wicket during a tense final day in Cape Town when he launched a series of expletives at batsman Philander, seemingly angered by the batsman’s decision not to move out of the way of a throw.

Here, the PA news agency looks at five sledging incidents that have gone down in cricket folklore.
