Buttler: Bangladesh series will be vital in the run up to the World Cup

Prior to the South African series, Buttler said aerial sports“We don’t have many games before the World Cup so those are all crucial to try and define certain positions and give people some confidence in role clarity.

“We have a good idea of ​​the team we want to go to the World Cup with, but there is competition for places and people pushing and that motivates people and standards. We have a lot of options and in the next six months it’s up to us to describe what that looks like.

“There are scheduling and player availability challenges where you can’t develop like you did four years ago. I think before the last World Cup we played 70 ODIs or something, but now there have been fewer games and less time together.

“That’s right, there’s no reason to affect our performance. The series in Bangladesh will be vital, probably the only real chance we will have to experience the conditions that we may face in the World Cup in India.”
