Bangladesh tour is England’s perfect pre-World Cup challenge: Jos Buttler | Cricket News – Times of India
Playing a slow, low wicket in the next round in Bangladesh is the perfect preparation for England’s title defense at the Cricket World Cup in India later this year, captain Jos Buttler has said.
England are due to play three one-day internationals and three Twenty20 matches in Bangladesh, starting Wednesday at Mirpur.
“That’s exactly the kind of challenge we need, heading into the World Cup, to test ourselves in the conditions that we’re likely to find the most difficult,” Buttler told reporters in Dhaka on Sunday.
“We are expecting a slow and low wicket, which is exactly what we want, to test us in difficult conditions, which will be great preparation for us going forward.”
England will be without some of their multi-format players, with the Test squad currently playing Game 2 in New Zealand, but Buttler said they will still have a balanced attack.
“Generally the wicket will be slower, but guys like Jofra (Archer) and Mark Wood have fantastic speed, so someone who can roll with such pace on those wickets is still a handful,” he said. declared. added.
“It’s not always to the batsman’s advantage. We have great diversity in the team. Right arm, left arm, high cadence, guys who know how to swing.
India will host the 50+ World Cup in October and November.
