Chris Jordan, Headline Act for the Bowlers

The 35-year-old bowler with a level-headed calmness and a fearsome yorker Chris Jordan (pictured) was the headline act for the bowlers in their match of the Super 8s phase in Barbados.

He took four wickets in five balls, including the first hat-trick recorded in England men’s T20 internationals while claiming figures of 4-10.

While coming into the final match, England only needed one big win to rest assured they would make it into the last four.

The seven-run defeat by South Africa in St Lucia before the start of the weekend followed the eight-wicket win over West Indies on Wednesday, leaving them two points away from a possible four.

Captain Buttler closed out an excellent all-round performance of his team. The finish was even better, as he struck five sixes in one over.

“Topping the Group”

Commenting on their result, Buttler explained he was thinking about

Topping the group and net run-rate

The captain also gave Liam ‘Livvy Livingstone credit for “being ready and taking it on” while mentioning Adil Rashid’s tandem with Livvy.

I think we’ve got great options for our team”, he added.

In parallel, USA captain Aaron Jones called the game a “hard” one to take in, explaining they were not as “disciplined” as they should have been.

We didn’t have a good last two games, something to talk about for sure. That’s the way it goes sometimes

Jones praised Buttler for being “very good and really experienced” while explaining that, since this was their first presence at a T20 World Cup, many people didn’t believe they would be “playing against the big boys”.
