Buttler’s Big Statement on Pakistan Pace Attack Ahead of T20 World Cup Final
13 November 2022 is the date of the final of the T20 world cup 2022. After one month of consistent competitiveness, England and Pakistan managed to reach the final, and they will play at MCG against each other and will give their best to win their second world cup. Jos Buttler was talking to the journalist in the press conference ahead of the world cup, and he gave a big statement on the Pakistani pace attack.
According to him, Pakistan has been known for producing quality pace bowling for years. They have one of the greatest fast bowlers: Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Shoiab Akhtar, and Imran Khan. Buttler said these pace attacks from Pakistan are no different from them. Shahin Afridi has gained his form, and Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, and Mohammad Wasim are also contributing to the team.
Buttler said, whenever these guys will retire from cricket, some of them will be the best fast bowlers Pakistan has ever produced.
Buttler on Playing Against Pakistan
England had recently visited Pakistan and won the series in Pakistan. According to Buttler, it will not have a big impact on the final match. He said Melbourne’s condition is different from the sub-continent, so the experience of playing 7 T20 matches in Pakistan will be different from playing in MCG.
According to him, the T20 world cup final will be different from the T20 series in Pakistan, and England understands Pakistan is a great team. But they will not focus too much on Pakistan, they will focus on themselves to come up with the best in the T20 world cup final.
Mark Wood and Dawid Malan are recovering from the injury, and he said that they will consider both of them until the toss if they prove their fitness.
Buttler on World Cup
Buttler has named England’s captain after the former English captain Eoin morgan took retirement from international cricket. If he manages to win the final on Sunday, he will become the second captain after Paul Collingwood to win the T20 world cup.
He said he used to dream about holding the world cup in his hand while growing up, and his dream is near to reality as a captain. He added everyone has a few dreams that link back to the time as a kid that you have thought of while playing in the back garden with brother and sister.
Pakistan has managed to reach the final form being out of the tournament in the early stage, while England has washed India by 10 wickets in the semi-final. It will be an interesting match, and we will witness the competition between the world’s best bowling team and the fearless batting team. Look forward to the match on Sunday 13 November.
