Jos Buttler – It was great game

After winning the game, England captain Jos Buttler said “It was a great game of cricket and I was delighted to go over the line. They played outstandingly and put us under pressure (on Australia), it was important for us to take wickets, which is what Wood and Curran did. I was looking at the ball and didn’t notice what exactly happened (on the possible obstruction by Wade).”

“You are always unsure about it (on his return after a long layoff), it was nice to get a boundary early on and that settled things a bit. Alex (Hales) has a fantastic record in Australia (playing in the BBL), Salt did well in his chances, but we felt that Alex was the man at the top in Australia and for the upcoming World Cup,” he added.
