Jos Buttler can destroy opposing captain’s plans if he gets going: Morkel

Kolkata, April 5 : Former South African quick Morne Morkel believes Rajasthan Royals’ star opener Jos Buttler is one of those batters who can put the opposing captain’s plans and strategiesin disarray with his destructive batting. While speaking about the England batter’s match-winning century against Mumbai Indians in his previous game in TATA IPL 2022, Morkel said on Cricket Live on Star Sports, “Jos the Boss… Sometimes the bowling t needs to say it’s his day and enjoy the show. But you need to find a way (to dismiss a batsman like him) early.” “In his century knock against Mumbai, he played exceptionally. He played all the shots and all around the ground. He took his time initially to get used to the pace and bounce but after that, he hit down the ground and square of the wickets. You just can’t stop him,” Morkel said. When asked about the lines which the bowling t needs to target against a player like Buttler, Morkel said, “It’s just the quality of a player. That’s why teams pay big dollars for players like Buttler to put pressure on the bowling attack. He’s a guy that if you don’t get him early, he will take thegame away completely and destroys all the plans the opposing captain makes.” BM
