Jos Buttler Injury: English wicket-keeper batsman has opted not to take the field during the second innings of match vs Bangladesh.
During the 12th match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between England and Bangladesh at Cardiff, star England wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler injured himself during the first innings.
The same came under the limelight after Butter didn’t take field in the second innings. Opening batsman Jonny Bairstow is keeping wickets for England in Buttler’s absence. Reserve batsman James Vince has been brought in as the fielding replacement for Buttler.
Jos Buttler Injury
It is believed that Buttler has experienced tightness in his right hip and won’t take field throughout the innings. A vital cog in the wheel for the hosts, the home crowd and team management would be hoping for Buttler to recover soon.
After Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza won the toss and put England in to bat, the home team posted a colossal 386/6 in their allotted quota of 20 overs. England thrived on the back of opening batsman Jason Roy’s ninth ODI century. Before getting out in the 35th over, Roy ended up scoring 153 (121) with the help of 14 fours and five sixes.
Roy and his opening partner Bairstow (51) ended up stitching a 128-run opening stand. Other than the opening pair, it was Buttler who scored his 19th ODI half-century. Coming in to bat at No. 4 in the 32nd over, Buttler scored 64 (44) with the help of two fours and four sixes before getting out in the 46th over.
In the last match against South Africa, Buttler had registered his ninth ODI century.
How Twitter reacted:
“This is the scene behind the 5 Live box at the River Taff End, where the Buttler six landed. I’ve had a look for the ball, but no joy. These people don’t know how close they were to getting sconned.” @stephanshemilt
