Jos Buttler has ‘certainly had a few dreams’ about lifting T20 World Cup

Jos Buttler has allowed himself to think about captaining England to T20 World Cup glory as he embraces the magnitude of an MCG showdown against Pakistan in Sunday’s final. Buttler has the opportunity to join an exclusive club containing just immediate predecessor Eoin Morgan and Paul Collingwood as cricketers who have led England’s men’s side all the way at a global event. While the Melbourne weather may overshadow the contest, Buttler is focused on the third World Cup final of his career, having been part of the Morgan teams that lost in 2016 and won the 2019 50-over version.
