“Just looked to be…”Jos Buttler gives a massive statement after England defeats Oman to boost their chances

England’s skipper Jos Buttler said that the team is focusing on controlling the things that are in their hands rather than keeping an eye on Australia vs Scotland clash.

However after beating Oman Buttler and company will now look to beat Namibia on June 15 for sealing the Super 8 spot.

“Been around long enough to know that people make comments. We know what’s going on in the dressing room. We have another huge match to come. We can only control what we do, all focus is on that,” Buttler said in the post-match presentation ceremony.

England was in a lot of trouble before the game, and their net run rate was -1.800. However, after reaching a target of 48 with 16.5 overs remaining, England increased their net run rate to +3.081, significantly higher than Scotland’s +2.164.

.Even before their run chase, Buttler, who amassed an undefeated twenty-four off eight balls, claimed that England had considered the complexities of net run rate. “Seemed promising, try to capitalize on the NRR,” Buttler remarked. England only needed four bowlers to thrash Oman after choosing to field first. The best bowler they had was Adil Rashid, who claimed four wickets. Reece Topley failed to claim any wickets, while Jofra Archer and Mark Wood shared three wickets each. Buttler said, “It looked like a really good surface, I don’t think anyone expected the wicket to play like it did.”
