T20 World Cup: According to an elated Jos Buttler, the England team is confident because they have excellent players. The English captain commented on their inspiring 20-run victory against a hot New Zealand team in their T20 World Cup 2022 Super 12 match on Tuesday, November 1. With one game remaining, all three teams, except Afghanistan, have the chance to attempt and secure their position in the last four thanks to England’s victory.

The semifinal berths in Group 1 are still up for grabs due to England’s victory. More crucially, the Three Lions’ triumph has provided the defending champions Australia with a vital lifeline.

T20 World Cup: “We Didn’t Think Too Much”: Jos Buttler

T20 World Cup: We Have Great Players In Playing XI As Well As Squad: Jos Buttler

“We didn’t think too much about the past poor performance (loss to Ireland), we have great players in the playing XI and the squad, we had the confidence that showed up today. We bat deep. I thought the wicket was a bit tricky, especially against spin, and I thought Alex Hales played a fine hand. It’s all about partnerships, one day. He gets going; some other day, it’ll be my turn. It’s a ruthless tournament. Last year South Africa went out despite having four wins out of five games.”

Buttler said at the post-match presentation.

Jos Buttler struck a match-winning 73 runs off 47 balls with a brilliant strike rate of 155.3, including seven fours and two sixes, earning him the Player of the Match award. Along with Alex Hales, who also surged back to form and scored a 40-ball 52, he contributed to an important 81-run opening stand. Their efforts enabled the Three Lions to score a competitive total of 179/6.

T20 World Cup: England’s Way Ahead

In response, New Zealand was held to 159/6 despite Glenn Phillips’ scorching 36-ball 62. With two victories each, Chris Woakes and Sam Curran were England’s top two bowlers. As it stands, England’s T20 performance has come close to being complete thanks to Buttler’s most convincing effort, which had him taking the lead with the bat and executing carefully thought-out strategies with gut instinct.

Given that Sri Lanka’s final Super 12 encounter is 24 hours after Australia’s final Group 1 match against Afghanistan, they will feel more at ease knowing the size of the victory needed against Sri Lanka. It’s difficult to discuss Buttler as the captain of England without mentioning Morgan. Given Morgan’s flawless and welcoming entry into the commentary box, it’s difficult to discuss Buttler without the latter speaking.

Morgan’s totemic influence would still cast a long shadow over this team, much to Buttler’s advantage, even if he were not on the pitch.
