It was also previously stated that only Root shines from the visiting team’s batting position, with the majority of the hitters needing to lift up their abilities. Mostly in a related manner, wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler stepped in with his thoughts. Buttler claimed that Root typically performs effectively, but that he is presently in the best form of his career, and that all England batters must stand up to help him.
“I think it is obvious that the rest of us need to step up and give Joe Root more support. This year, in particular, he always bats well, but he seems to be in the form of his life,” said Buttler in an Interaction.
We certainly do not want to create more pressure on Joe’s shoulders: Buttler
“He has had an amazing start to the series and hopefully, that can continue and the rest of us can improve our game to give him more support. We certainly do not want to create more pressure on Joe’s shoulders. As a unit, we need to stand up to the level we can,” he added.
The wicketkeeper also discussed the team’s intentions for the last day of the Lord’s Test versus Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. The Indian pace combination showed incredible skill to put up a solid 89-run partnership, allowing the visitors to put pressure on the hosts. Buttler’s statement came before the Headingley Test, which begins on 25th August.
With India leading the series 1-0, it will be interesting to watch if the host team can even the series or if the visitors can repeat their victory in Leeds.
