Jos Buttler Escapes Freak Injury After His Bat Stuck Into Pads While Completing Run


England skipper Jos Buttler escaped a freak injury during the first T20I against Australia at Perth Stadium, Perth. It was early in the match when Buttler tried to steal a run and his bat got stuck with the pad as he lost balance and fell down on the ground. However, Buttler save well inside the crease and he also escaped an injury.

Meanwhile, Buttler returned to the English side after a two-month injury lay-off and he didn’t waste much time to make a mark. The swashbuckling opener smashed 16 runs in the first over of the match as he hit Cameron Greet for four boundaries to give England a flying start.

The English captain and Hales blasted 50 off the first five overs and brought up the 100 in just the ninth over. Buttler scored 68 runs from 32 deliveries and was dismissed by Nathan Ellis as he attempted to hit down the ground, only to miscue to mid-off, where Kane Richardson took a comfortable catch.
