T20 World Cup 2022: England team won their second title by defeating Pakistan by 5 wickets in the final of T20 World Cup 2022. Captain Jos Buttler, who won England this title after years, had a big hand in his journey. After the retirement of former captain Eoin Morgan, England found their best team within a few months. Talking on this, Butler has made many revelations.
How to prepare to win the title?
In his first major tournament as captain, captain Jos Buttler credited the victory to a team that has enjoyed the rewards of a long journey with a few changes over the years, leading England to their second T20 World Cup win. England’s white-ball revolution in 2015 culminated with Eoin Morgan winning the ODI World Cup 2019 at home. But Buttler has now successfully carried on that legacy with a five-wicket win over Pakistan at the MCG on Sunday. The win makes England the first team in the history of international cricket to have won both the 50-over and 20-over World Cups at the same time and are undoubtedly the best white-ball team in the world.
I am proud of the team – Butler
Butler said after the match, “To be able to win the T20 World Cup, I’m very proud of everyone here. It’s been a long journey with some changes over the years that we won this title. It’s been a great tournament.” I realized that Ireland came a long way after the match but the game we played after that has been amazing to win. Choosing to bowl first in adverse conditions, Sam Curran (3/12) He was impressive in the first and death overs, while Adil Rashid (2/22) was astonishing in the middle overs as England’s careful planning and strategy, especially in the second half, never allowed Pakistan to score runs.
Made a good comeback in the final too
In the chase, England lost three wickets, including captain Butler, in the power-play. But Ben Stokes struck the first T20 fifty with his distinctive style to hit an unbeaten 52 off 49 balls, helping England win with one over to spare. “We managed to get off to a good start, which controlled the run-rate. We had good batsmen. It was not easy at all, but Ben Stokes batted brilliantly in the end,” he said. The right-handed batsman elaborated, “Adil’s over was excellent for us and in the last three games as well. He has bowled brilliantly. When you hit the right length there is a little bit of movement and he is clearly good. Was bowling. His pace was not easy to read at all.
