IPL Gives Us A Lot Of Familiarity: Jos Buttler

England also supported their aggressive batting style in Ashes 2023, which ended in a 2-2 draw. Jos Buttler also feels that IPL gives them a lot of familiarity with playing cricket in India and it will be an advantage for many teams.

Obviously, we’re playing 50 over cricket, not 20 over cricket as you would in the IPL. And lots of the other teams are in a similar position with that”.

“Many players from all around the world come here and experience the IPL. So, I believe that’s an advantage for most teams to have played quite a bit of cricket in India,” Buttler told the media ahead of the World Cup 2023 opener”, Buttler further said.
