Jos Buttler Looks for Flexibility in England Batting Order
England batsman, Jos Buttler, who has been in a swashbuckling form admitted that he is ready to drop down the order to help his team.
Meanwhile, Buttles smashed yet another half-century in England’s eight-wicket defeat against India. Furthermore, he has scored seven fifties in eight matches so far in this shortest format.
However, the host will look to bounce back in the three-match Vitality IT20 series against India in Cardiff on Friday. Buttler moved up in batting ranks for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, with his form continuing for his country.
“It’s a fantastic place to bat… refreshing. “Whether that’s me opening forever, I don’t know… I’d hope to retain the flexibility. I do think it’s the best place to bat, but it comes down to the make-up of the team,” he added.
Buttler credited his improvement to more measured mental preparation, learned in part in the IPL.
“When I was younger I didn’t pay much attention to that or trust it enough – it was all about technique in practice. Being calm is allowing me to make good decisions,” he added.
Kuldeep is a rare talent
Kuldeep Yadav bagged 5-24 at Old Trafford on Tuesday, including three wickets in his third over when he had Morgan (7) caught in the deep and Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root stumped by MS Dhoni for golden ducks.
Buttler admitted that he is a rare bowler but is confident that the English players will do well in the upcoming outings.
“It’s very rare, and he’s a very good bowler,” Buttler added of Yadav. “It’s now down to the guys to gain an understanding. You see it a lot in international cricket that guys burst on to the scene, and then people get a handle on them. We know we are a lot better than we showed during that little phase of the game,” he concluded.
