The two heavyweights of the cricket world England and Australia are facing each other in a T20I series on English soil. The home side has been all-dominating ever since the series has commenced, and now they are marching forward with a 2-0 lead in the series. The final match of the T20I series will take place on September 13, where visitors will put up their best foot forward to turn things in their favour.
The host side clinched the first match by two runs and lifted the second one even greatly by six wickets at Rose Bowl, Southampton. However, the thing that has been stealing limelight since the series opener is Jos Buttler’s stellar performance in a row. In the first match, the ace batsman scored a 29-ball 44 and stunned the opponents with a 54-ball 77 in the subsequent match. His heroics coupled with Dawid Malans’ efforts became instrumental in paving a victorious way for the Englishmen in both the matches.
In the same light, England’s former cricketer Michael Vaughan is all praise for Buttler. He took to his Twitter and wrote, “ As one of the worst white ball cricketers to represent England. I am highly qualified to say I think we are witnessing England’s greatest White player in @josbuttler !!! #OnOn.”

The amazing thing about this tweet was that Vaughan has been sounding quite modest to pour all good words for Buttler. Being one of the greatest captains for the English side, he is congratulating Buttler by calling himself one of the worst. The tweet spoke highly of the 29-year-old and yet trolled Vaughan in a funny manner.
Though the home side has already registered the T20I series in their account, the Kangaroos will thrive hard in the series finale to land themselves in a respectable slot. After the T20I series, the three-match ODI series will also set action between the two nations.
The players of both England and Australia are key players of some of the franchises in the Indian Premier League. They will join their squad in UAE after finishing things here and will undergo a mandatory quarantine phase.
