Eoin Morgan & Co. has come out all guns blazing in the ongoing T20 World Cup. They have won all four matches they’ve played in the group stage so far. One of the most balanced teams on paper, England has been formidable with its performances on the field. Come what may, they have tackled every situation and have come out with the win. Shane Warne praises Buttler for his dominant performance against Sri Lanka.
Jos plays a match-winning innings as England cruise past Sri Lanka
One of the main reasons that England has remained unbeaten in the tournament is Jos Buttler. In the last two games against Sri Lanka and Australia, Buttler has proved to be the difference. A crucial knock under pressure against Sri Lanka helped England post a respectable total of 163. England batted first in the match, and the start proved to be a disaster. They were three wickets down with 35 runs on the board. In 12 overs, England managed to score just above five runs per over. Morgan played some sensible cricket and built a partnership alongside Buttler.
The opener scored his maiden T20I century as he dispatched the last ball of the innings for a six. England then turned the match with their brilliance in bowling and fielding, as the English won the contest comfortably.
His performance of 71 runs in 32 balls against the Aussies proved to be the base for the performance against Sri Lanka. As far as the scoring chart is concerned, Buttler sits at the top with 214 runs in 4 matches. His contributions will be crucial for the team moving forward into the knockout round.
Shane Warne praises Jos Buttler
Former Australian Cricketer Shane Warne praises Buttler for his performance against Sri Lanka. He has compared the wicket-keeper/batsman to Caribbean legend Sir Vivian Richards. Warne took to Twitter and stated that Buttler’s style reminded him of Richards. He added that the England Wicket-keeper is one of the best white-ball players ever and England’s best.
