CWC 2019: Morgan gives injury update on Buttler
There were quite a lot of concerns over Jos Buttler’s hip injury which he picked up in the recently-concluded match against Bangladesh in a ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash on Saturday. Just as when everybody thought it was a serious one, England captain Eoin Morgan de-emphasized injury concerns sustained by Jos Buttler.
Jos Buttler scored a candid 44-ball 66 at Cardiff in England’s humongous total of 386-6 but did not turn up to field during Bangladesh’s chase.
However, Morgan is pretty confident that Jos Buttler will be physically fit as a fiddle for England’s next battle against Windies on Friday at Rose Bowl Cricket Ground, Southampton. At the same time, Morgan has insisted that Buttler will not be rushed back before the due time.
No serious concern: Morgan
Morgan said that there is nothing much to worry about the injury. “There’s no serious concern at that moment,” the England skipper said about Buttler’s injury status following the win.
“He’s going to be monitored over the next 48 hours, but at the moment it’s more precautionary than a situation where he is not able to do his job. I’m quite confident that it’s not a serious injury,” he added.
Despite the fact that England have a string of productive stars in their batting brigade, Buttler has been one of the most consistent performers of late who has been giving the team some pretty good starts at a brisk pace.
Before scoring his 33-ball fifty against Bangladesh on Saturday, he set the track on fire when he scored the fastest World Cup ton by an Englishman (75 balls) in his side’s defeat to Pakistan at Trent Bridge.
