‘You decide…’ Jos Buttler was ‘annoyed’ by repeated questions on Jasprit Bumrah – Video


New Delhi. The newly appointed England limited overs captain Jos Buttler is known for his calm demeanor. It has been seen very few times that he has lost his cool on the field. However, a video of him is going viral in which Butler seems to be losing his patience when a reporter repeatedly asked him whether India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is the best.

Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah performed brilliantly in the first ODI of the series against England. England’s legendary batsman also appeared helpless in front of him. He took 6 wickets for just 19 runs in this match and played an important role in wrapping up England’s innings for 110 runs. Bumrah was also adjudged the Player of the Match for his match-winning spell.

Bumrah thus also became the first Indian pacer to take 6 wickets in ODIs in England. Jos Buttler came to the press conference after a crushing defeat by 10 wickets in the match. A reporter questioned him only about Bumrah. The journalist reminded Butler about former English captain Nasser Hussain whether there is a better bowler than Jasprit Bumrah in all formats. In response, Buttler also praised Bumrah and admitted to facing the fast bowler in challenging conditions.

He said, ‘There is no doubt that he is a great bowler. He has been one of the leading bowlers in the world for many years. And it seems that he is constantly on his way to the better. That’s the big challenge playing against India, you get to face these great bowlers and batsmen. So you want to play international cricket to challenge yourself against the best. There is no doubt that he (Bumrah) is one of the best and we are looking forward to the challenge again on Thursday (second ODI) and try to do better.

Reporters, however, were not convinced by his reply and made it clear that the England captain had not answered his question. The journalist again said that Bumrah is the best or one of the best. On this Butler said – ‘Now you decide.’ Butler seemed to be incensed by this and gave such an answer to end the conversation.

Talking about Jasprit Bumrah, he destroyed England’s top order with the new ball in the first ODI. He sent Jason Roy, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone cheaply to the pavilion. Then in his second spell, he took 2 more wickets.
