England captain Jos Buttler has stated that he is confident of doing well against Team India speedster Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the semifinals of the T20 World Cup. The two teams will take on each other at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday, November 10. Buttler has already got out five times by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in T20Is.
Speaking to reporters before the semi-final clash between India and England, here’s what the swashbuckling wicketkeeper-batter had to say: “I’m always confident in my own game. I think there are always certain bowlers that you potentially find harder than others and or at certain times in your career. You have good times against them or bad times against them.”But I certainly don’t fear anyone. I always prepare well and I look to play the ball in front of me and not the bowler.”
However, Jos Buttler believes the Adelaide Oval is one of the best stadiums in the world and he added that Team India will have massive support during the semifinals. He also added that it will be a great experience to play in front of a massive crowd in such a big game in the T20 World Cup.
On this, Jos Buttler stated: “We are all really excited about the match. You know in my opinion in one of the best stadiums in the world against a brilliant Indian team which will be well supported tomorrow. So, it’s going to be a great occasion and you know these are the times that you want to be involved as a player.”
England captain Jos Buttler has shared that his team will try their best to beat India and end the prospect of an India-Pakistan final at the T20 World Cup next Sunday at the MCG as well.
Speaking to reporters, here’s what Jos Buttler said about facing India: “Look, we certainly don’t want to see an India-Pakistan final. So we will try and do everything we can to make sure that doesn’t happen. India are a very very strong team. Indian teams have been consistent for a very long time. Naturally so, with the amount of depth and talent they have. There are fantastic players in their lineup.”
“He has been great to watch. He is someone who has been the batter of the tournament so far. His biggest strength looks to be the amount of freedom he plays his cricket with. He has obviously got all the shots, he allows himself to play those shots. As for any batter in the world, it takes just one chance to create the wicket. We desperately need to find a way to do that,” Jos Buttler concluded.
