“Great memories. A really special day. One of the great games for me in an England shirt. Surya getting out was a standout moment for me. We got off to a good start, which was vital. We are playing a different India this time, led by Rohit Sharma. The shift in their attitude came after their heartbreaking exit in the T20 WC 2022,” said Buttler in a statement.

India’s tactical evolution

Buttler acknowledged India’s shift in strategy post their 2022 T20 World Cup exit, recognizing their more aggressive style in both T20 and ODI matches. This strategic overhaul has made India a more formidable and unpredictable side. Notably, in the 2022 semi-final, India suffered a heavy defeat to England, with Buttler leading his team to a decisive 10-wicket victory at the Adelaide Oval. Now, with a spot in the final on the line, both teams bring an abundance of talent and experience, setting the stage for a thrilling and high-stakes encounter.
