Bilateral Cricket is becoming less Relevance, says Jos Buttler


Just In: Off the back of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup win in Melbourne, the English skipper described Bilateral Series against Australia as “Meaningless.” Notably, the World Champions are white-washed in a 3-match series.

Even though the English side displayed listless performances against Australia, the skipper Buttler hasn’t looked concerned about it. Instead, he thinks Bilateral Cricket is getting less popular each coming day, and Australia ODIs are a good example of it.

Notably, the series between England and Australia wasn’t part of ICC’s Super League. Moreover, the English side took the field with new players because most of its cricketers in Abu Dhabi, preparing for the upcoming Test series against Pakistan.

Talking to the BBC during the Post-match ceremony, Buttler said, “It was a tough series because most of our players are not available. Nevertheless, it was fair play to Australia, and they completely outplayed us. However, it’s not part of the ranking system, so there’s no such impact as there would be.”

The England cricket team faced Australia in three One Day Internationals and lost each of them, even the most recent one, which they lost by a record margin. However, the team’s next stop is in Pakistan where they will play the Test series.
