Buttler conceded that India deserved the win, noting they capitalized on the conditions better and outperformed England both with bat and ball. Despite a strong start in the chase, England faltered against India’s bowling attack, especially spinners who took crucial wickets.

“We let them get 20-25 runs too many. It was a challenging surface that they played well on. They outplayed us and fully deserved the win,” Buttler stated in a post-match interview.

Reflecting on England’s bowling strategy and decisions, Buttler highlighted areas where they could have performed better but credited India for their resilience and strategic play throughout the tournament.

The loss marked the end of England’s campaign, while India progresses to the final, aiming to secure the T20 World Cup title against South Africa. Buttler concluded by commending his team’s efforts despite facing numerous challenges throughout the tournament.
