After defeating Oman by eight wickets in the T20 World Cup 2024 match at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, England captain Jos Buttler said that the credit goes to his bowlers.


The Englishmen restricted Oman to just 47 runs in 13.2 overs. Later, the side chased the taret in just 3.1 overs.


Speaking after the match, he showered praise on the bowlers, adding there was some extra bounce at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.


During the T20 World Cup 2024 match against Oman, Buttler smashed an unbeaten 24 runs in just eight deliveries helping the side to seal a crucial victory. Their first game against Scotland was abandoned and lost the second match against arch-rivals Australia.

"The tone was set very well by the bowlers by picking up those early wickets and restricting them to that total. We've got another big game in two days. I thought they bowled brilliantly. There was some extra bounce, thought they bowled really good lines and lengths. There was some spin, don't think any of us expected the surface to play like it did," Buttler said.

Spinner Adil Rashid bowled an exceptional spell. He registered a four-wicket haul by conceding just 11 runs.

"Adil bowled exceptionally well. The message was to be ultra-positive. We spoke of taking our chances to boost our NRR. We know what's going in the dressing room, there's huge confidence," he added.

Recapping the T20 World Cup 2024 match, after winning the toss England sent Oman to bat first. The opening partnership only stood for six runs after both openers; Pratik Athavale (5 runs from 3 balls, 1 four) and Kashyap Prajapati (9 runs from 16 balls, 1 six) departed. Star pacer Jofra Archer made the first breakthrough of the match by removing Athavale from the crease.

Shoaib Khan (11 runs from 23 balls, 1 four) was the top-scorer for Oman, even as the team managed a meagre total of 47 runs. The Three Lions bowlers ended Oman's inning by the end of the 14th over.

Adil Rashid led the English bowling attack, bagging four wickets by giving just 11 runs in his four-over spell at an economy rate of 2.80.

While chasing, the England openers showed clear domination and chased down the target in a mere 3.1 overs with their stupendous batting.

Philip Salt (12 runs from 3 balls, 2 sixes) was dismissed by Bilal Khan. Will Jacks (5 off 7) was dismissed by Kaleemullah.

But, Jos Buttler (24* runs from 8 balls, 4 fours, and 1 six) stayed unbeaten till the end, along with Jonny Bairstow (8* runs from 2 balls, 2 fours) helping the Three Lions win the match.

Bilal Khan and Kaleemullah were the only wicket-takers for Oman in the game.

Adil Rashid was named the 'Player of the Match'.
