England will face Pakistan in the final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 on Sunday, November 13 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and will be hoping to take revenge for their 1992 ODI World Cup final defeat at the same venue. Both teams will hope to become the second team after the West Indies to win two T20 World Cup titles.
Three lions reached the final with a 10-wicket win over India in the second semi-final at the Adelaide Oval, as they chased down the target in just 16 overs without losing a wicket.
Opening pair Jos Buttler and Alex Hales hammered the bowling attack around the park, adding 170 runs for the first wicket and never allowing India to get back into the game.
Impossible For One Man Or Woman To Coach Three Formats – Jos Buttler
England captain Jos Buttler believes it is difficult for one person to coach a squad in all three formats. England currently have Brendon McCullum in charge of their Test squad and Matthew Mott in charge of their white-ball side.
It is believed that communication becomes difficult with separate coaches for red and white ball cricket in India, where Rahul Dravid is in charge.
“Yeah, I certainly see that as a possibility,” Buttler said. “I think the nature of the schedule of English cricket makes it near enough impossible for one man or woman to do the whole job. I think we play so much cricket and have so much traveling and time away, I think that’s sort of becoming untenable really to have one coach.”
“Yeah, it’s certainly something I think other teams may look at. It seems to be working well so far for English cricket, and hopefully, that will obviously continue,” he added.
They Have Full Ownership Over That Team – Jos Buttler
Buttler believes that other teams should seriously consider exploring different coaching options. He is sure that if players know who is in charge, there will be more stability.
“I think even when sort of one person was in charge, you were sort of seeing them having to miss certain series or one of the assistants taking over for a little bit,” Jos Buttler said.
“Certainly in terms of the stability of the groups, I think it’s a real plus that we know exactly who our coaching staff is, who our head coach is, and they have full ownership over that team,” he added.
