Buttler led England to their second T20 World Cup title after Three Lions beat Pakistan by five wickets in the final at Melbourne on Sunday.

In a video doing the rounds on social media, Buttler can be seen asking his Muslim teammates— Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali — to leave before they celebrate with the champagne. he then waits to see that both players had left before the celebrations kicked off.

Coming to the match, England dished out a clinical bowling performance to restrict Pakistan to a below-par 137 for 8 before chasing down the target with six balls to spare at the MCG.

Pakistan never had any momentum in their innings. Babar Azam (32), Mohammad Rizwan (15), Shan Masood (38) and Shadab Khan (20) were the only ones who reached double figures.

Sam Curran (3/12) did most of the damage with three wickets, while Adil Rashid (2/22) and Chris Jordan (2/27) snapped two each. In reply, England were 45 for three in the sixth over but Ben Stokes (52 not out) produced a gritty fifty to take his team home.

Jos Buttler (26), Harry Brook (20) and Moeen Ali (19) were the other contributors.
