I don’t care what happens in my career anymore: Buttler recalls final moments
A last-ball run-out and clinical batting in the super over by Jos Buttler helped England massively in winning their first-ever
England’s wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler had all the pressure in the world when the ball was coming to him and he had to break the stumps to help England lift their first-ever World Cup. But the calm and composed Buttler didn’t do any mistake and he was over the moon as soon as he broke the stumps and saw Guptill was way behind the line.
Two days after the final, Buttler recalled those moments and revealed what it felt like during those crunch moments –
“Two needed off one ball, we didn’t get that. Then it came down to, can we get a run out? It’s quite nice to know that we will wake up this week and it did happen! It was quite an incredible match for a World Cup final to be so close, and somehow we managed to win the game.”
Buttler also revealed how he tackled the pressure in the final moments of the game and he admitted he won’t be caring anymore what happens in his career from now on after achieving the greatest glory.
“It’s ok when you are in the middle because you go into default, it is what you know — playing cricket. Catching the ball and trying to break the stumps, that’s what I know but the consequences are a bit larger.”
“When we walked down through the Long Room at the start of the game, the noise before the anthems was deafening. I don’t think I will ever care about anything ever again! I don’t think I will care what happens now in my career,” he concluded.
