“Better luck next time” – Jos Buttler on fans having aspirations about India-Pakistan final


England captain Jos Buttler took a sly dig at people wanting to see an India-Pakistan final in the T20 World Cup 2022. The keeper-batter’s comments came after England sent India packing out of the World Cup with a commanding 10-wicket win at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday, November 10.

England played their best game of the tournament, hammering India to all ends of the park to seal a place in the final. Jos Buttler spearheaded the win as he stitched an unbroken 170-run stand with Alex Hales to complete the win in 16 overs. The pair left Rohit Sharma and Co. dazed as India lost another knockout game.Speaking at the post-match press conference, the keeper-batter said, as quoted by the Indian Express:“Certainly some people were not wanting that final (Pakistan vs England). I know after looking at the first India-Pakistan game everyone wanted to see them again but better luck next time. We wanted to, like I said, spoil that party.”The Lancashire player heaped praise on Hales, stating that his Big Bash experience in Australia has been hugely integral and that the ground dimensions suit his gameplay. As quoted by the ICC, he continued:“I think Alex would have played as much Big Bash cricket as anyone, and his performance tonight was amazing. I think it’s some huge strengths of his, square of the wicket, which obviously today on this kind of grounds really is great.”He’s been performing really well for a long period of time. The last three matches especially, his form has been brilliant, and he was great to just tuck in behind tonight and bat at the other end.”
