England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler has announced that he is ready to “move on” from the Mankading incident that caused quite a stir amongst the cricketing community.

Buttler was Mankaded by Sri Lanka spinner Sachithra Senanayake during the fifth ODI at Edgbaston.

“I don’t think it was a great thing to see in cricket from my point of view,” Buttler toldĀ Sky Sports. “But the guys will have forgotten about that and if you look at the game I don’t think we were good enough to win it.

“It’s all forgotten about and hopefully England can go on and win the Test series.

“Personally for me it’s not (in the spirit of the game) but if you look at it like that there are loads of issues that you can talk about. You could talk about it forever but I prefer just to move on from it and I look forward to playing cricket again.”
