Buttler Lauds Bowlers as England Crushes Oman in T20 World Cup 2024 Rout

England skipper Jos Buttler heaped praise on his bowling attack after they dismantled Oman for a mere 47 runs, setting the stage for a comprehensive eight-wicket victory in the T20 World Cup 2024 clash at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. This win comes as a much-needed boost for England after their opening match against Scotland was washed out and they fell short against Australia.

England’s Bowling Blitz Sets the Tone

Opting to bowl first, England’s bowlers wasted no time in asserting their dominance. Jofra Archer drew first blood, removing opener Pratik Athavale cheaply. The early wicket triggered a collapse for Oman, as none of their batsmen could manage to build a significant score.

“The tone was set very well by the bowlers by picking up those early wickets and restricting them to that total,” remarked Buttler after the match. He highlighted the unexpected bounce and assistance for the spinners on the pitch. “There was some extra bounce, thought they bowled really good lines and lengths. There was some spin, don’t think any of us expected the surface to play like it did,” he added.

Leading the bowling charge was Adil Rashid, who picked up a match-winning haul of four wickets for just 11 runs in his four overs. Buttler was effusive in his praise for the leg-spinner, stating, “Adil bowled exceptionally well.”

Clinical Batting Seals Dominant Victory

Chasing a paltry target of 48, England openers Philip Salt and Jos Buttler displayed aggressive intent. Salt smashed two sixes in his brief innings before being dismissed. However, Jonny Bairstow joined Buttler at the crease, and the duo ensured a swift conclusion to the chase, scoring the remaining runs in a mere 3.1 overs. Buttler himself remained unbeaten on a quickfire 24-run knock, laced with four boundaries and a six.

This emphatic victory not only boosts England’s net run rate but also injects a dose of confidence into the squad as they look ahead to their next challenge. “We’ve got another big game in two days,” said Buttler, highlighting the importance of maintaining momentum.
