T20 World Cup 2022 Semi-Final: "Don't Want An India-Pakistan Final": Jos Buttler Made A Big Claim
Pakistan cricket team sealed their tickets for the final match of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022Jos Buttler-led England cricket team is all set to take on Team India in the second semi-final match of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 on Thursday at the Adelaide Oval. The winner of this game will take on Pakistan in the final match on Sunday.
Ahead of the much-awaited match, Jos Buttler addressed the media about his side's preparations. Butter made a big claim as he said he will try to spoil the party so that there is no T20 World Cup final between India and Pakistan. He said:
"Look, we certainly don't want to see an India and Pakistan final. So we will try and do everything we can to make sure that doesn't happen,"
He added: "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,"
Indian middle-order batter Suryakumar Yadav has played a crucial role in India's success in this tournament so far. He has registered three half-centuries at a great strike-rate. Talking about his performances, Buttler said:
"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."
Speaking about the injuries to Malan and Wood, Buttler said: "We will see how they pull up. We will try and give them as long as possible. Dawid left the field the other day with a niggle and Mark Wood had some stiffness so yeah, we trust the medical team and we trust those two guys as well so we will give them as long as possible."
