Buttler wants England to ruin Rohit & Co.’s World Cup celebration in the semifinals. “Certainly don’t want to see India vs. Pakistan final.”

Jos Buttler has said that he wants England to spoil India and Pakistan’s chances of meeting in the final of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

Speaking ahead of England’s semifinal against India at Edgbaston on Thursday, Buttler said that he would like his side to “ruin” the celebration if either India or Pakistan make it to the final.

“We don’t want to see an India-Pakistan final. Certainly don’t want to see that,” Buttler said. “We want to ruin the party, if that’s the way it is.

“We want to make sure we’re in the final. That’s the be all and end all for us. But it would be nice to, if not stop India winning the World Cup, then at least make it difficult for them.”

Buttler also said that he is relishing the prospect of taking on India’s star batsman Rohit Sharma in the semifinal.

“He’s a world-class player. He’s in great form. It’s a great challenge,” Buttler said. “You want to test yourself against the best. That’s what gets you up for games.”

The Indian cricket team is currently in Sri Lanka for a three-match Test series. The first Test match ended in a draw, with the second Test currently underway. The third and final Test will be played next week.

One of the key players for Sri Lanka in the series has been Wanindu Hasaranga. The 23-year-old spinner has been in excellent form, taking nine wickets in the first Test match.

Hasaranga has caused problems for the Indian batsmen, with many of them struggling to score runs off him. One player who has struggled in particular is Sanju Samson.

The Kerala batsman was dismissed for a duck in the first innings of the first Test, and was forced to retire hurt in the second innings after being hit on the helmet by a Hasaranga delivery.

Speaking to the Indian Express, former Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan said that Samson “cannot choose” Hasaranga.

“He (Hasaranga) has been bowling well. Sanju Samson cannot choose him, he has to play him. Even Hardik Pandya is not confident against him,” Muralitharan said.
