England cricket has come a long way since their harrowing experience at the Adelaide Oval – the venue of their semi-final clash against India on Thursday (November 10) – in the 50-over World Cup seven years ago. Bangladesh’s defeat and exit from the tournament changed their white-ball story for good. Paving the way for an exciting style of play that culminated in the final redemption at the 2019 World Cup. After tasting success there, Jos Buttler is hoping there are more ‘tangible’ things to show over the weekend.

Buttler said on the eve of the semi-final against India in Sydney

“I think we all want to win things, [we] certainly don’t want to be a team that says we’ve played a great style of cricket.” “You want to have tangible things that you have achieved during that time as well.”

“Getting into the semifinals and final, the big prize with the trophy at the end of the game is clearly standing there, and that’s what we all want to achieve. But we know the way we play is going to give us the best chance have to do that,” Buttler said.

Buttler admits his team will continue to ‘move the game’ as much as possible

As far as the playing style is concerned, the teams have had to temper their expectations and recalculate to test the batting conditions at all the venues in Australia. Even their semi-final opponents – India – who have changed their batting ideology since their exit from the World Cup last year, have had to adjust and stop the unbridled approach to scoring runs. Buttler acknowledged the difficulty faced by the batsmen, but believed his team would continue to ‘proceed the game’ as much as possible.
