The chances are going to be fewer and fewer when you're a bit older: Jos Buttler

England have been on a riot this season with the side winning two major bilateral's against Pakistan and Australia away from home. 

However, nothing will be better for Jos Buttler and the Three Lions if England can clinch their second T20 World Cup title as they face against Pakistan in the finals at MCG.

Skipper Jos Buttler who is 33 knows the importance of the win in the finals and wants to continue the legacy left behind by his predecessor Eoin Morgan who left England lift the ICC World Cup title in 2019. 

Jos Buttler's men who face the three time-finalists Pakistan in the finals are ladened with players who are currently at the back end of their respective careers. 

The team currently has seven players in their world cup squad over 32 and only time will tell how long the players will continue to represent England.

Buttler during his interview with the press commented on the presence of the senior players present in the squad, and the chances of the players playing in the coming World Cups, 

"Of course the chances are going to be fewer and fewer when you're a bit older. But that just gives you that added determination and drive to try and make it happen,"

"Hopefully I've got more time ahead myself as a captain and with Matthew Mott we can hopefully shape the next, as I say, era of English white-ball cricket, We're very much right in the back of that wave, of course, but there's a bit of a new direction, as well."

A win in the finals would be a massive achievement for England as the side will become the first team in white-ball history to simultaneously hold both the tags of T20 and 50 over champions.
