On 30 August 2023, England locked horns with New Zealand in the first game of the four-match T20I series at Chester-le-Street. The home side won the game by seven wickets but the England skipper, Jos Buttler hit the headlines for his bizarre DRS call that he took during New Zealand’s innings.


The incident took place on the third delivery of the 16th over as Liam Livingstone was bowling. Glenn Phillips defended the ball that dipped on the toss. But, Buttler went for a DRS and in replays, it was seen that the ball hit the middle of the bat and it was nowhere near the toss. Hence, England lost the review and it was an embarrassing moment for the England skipper.

Here is the shared video:

Speaking of the match, the Kiwis batted first and scored 139 runs for nine wickets in 20 overs. In reply, England chased down the target with ease in 14 overs with seven wickets in hand. Debutant Brydon Carse won the Player of the Match award for taking three wickets for 23 runs.

During the post-match presentation, Carse said: "Obviously a great start to my T20 career, awesome to play in front of a home crowd and put in a good performance. Tried to keep to my strengths, hit the top of the stumps and it paid off with a crucial wicket. Sometimes it can be two-paced , especially through the middle. Some skidded through and held up a bit, so I tried to bash a length. I had friends here tonight, I've played here for 10 years and to perform was a special feeling."

Buttler also heaped praise on his bowlers and said: " Fantastic start, here on his home ground. Thought he bowled with great skill and pace. We've given guys opportunity, he's taken his and Luke Wood as well. <Livingstone> He bowled brilliantly. Nice to see a guy who can contribute with bat, ball and in the field, they're gold dust. I thought Moeen bowled brilliantly and we know how good Rashid is. Nice to have them to call on."
