The first Ashes Test, according to Jos Buttler, must be the priority. Heavy rain disrupted their preparations in Brisbane on December 8th. Buttler also hopes that outside noise fades away. As a result, the best cricket may be seen. On Tuesday, England’s tour game in Brisbane was postponed. Due to heavy rains overnight. In addition, the opening day was called off without a single ball being bowled. This comes after the same thing happened at Peter Burge Oval during the England vs England Lions match. It just lasted 29 overs. Meanwhile, Jos Buttler conceded that both sides. He has had to bargain with constrained hone and off-field distractions. In any case, he considers the group that can center on cricket superior should come out trumps.
“Probably both sides are excited for the cricket to start and for the off-field distractions to sort of hopefully move into the background. We can start really talking about some great cricket on the field and think the Ashes series are always fantastic,” Jos Buttler said.
“There always seems to be certain things that happened before the Ashes series, and as players, it’s very important that you don’t get too drawn into that or to drawn into what the opposition is doing,” Buttler added.
Furthermore, Australia’s preparations have also been less than ideal. It was further hampered by the inclement weather in Queensland and the distraction of Tim Paine’s departure as Test captain. Nevertheless, Australia’s assistant coach Andrew McDonald is confident in his team’s ability to do well. They’ve made good use of their limited time. Then Buttler will play in his first Ashes series away from home. He is confident that the fifth Test at Perth’s Optus Stadium will just go forward.
“Lastly, I’ve not been part of an Ashes series in Australia, but the Perth Test is always a fantastic game. It’d be a great shame if the game can’t be played in Perth … that new stadium is fantastic. Fingers crossed that things improve, and the tour can run as scheduled,” Jos Buttler said.
