During a recent conversation with RR teammate Ravichandran Ashwin, Buttler revealed that former Pakistan spinner Mushtaq Ahmed assisted him in identifying and correcting his flaws.
“Mushtaq Ahmed always told me to hit first on the off-side and then come around to the leg-side. You will never hit the ball on the off-side if you only look at the leg-side “In a video posted on RR’s YouTube channel, Buttler said to Ashwin.

“The coach’s job is to pass on his knowledge and experience to the players; the rest is up to the players. We’re also attempting to instill this culture in the Pakistani team “he added
