In the Southampton T20 match, the Indian team set a target of 199 runs to win against England. Seeing the kind of batting lineup of the English team, it seemed they would quickly achieve this total, but Bhuvneshwar Kumar broke the hearts of the English fans in the first over.
Bhuvi first made Jason Roy dance with his swing and when Roy went to the other end with a single, Butler knelt on the first ball in front of Bhuvi. Butler did not understand anything about Bhuvi’s inswing ball and became clean bowled.
Butler was in great form in the IPL and the fans wanted to see whether he would be able to repeat the form of IPL at the international level or not. But in the first match, he disappointed his fans, so the fans now have to wait for the second T20 match to see Butler’s batting.
Jos Buttler has a horrible record against Bhuvneshwar Kumar in T20. The star who faced 67 balls could not get a clear dominance. He got out 4 times.
