England is set to lock horns against Australia in Ashes 2021 in December. With regards to the fiery series, Jos Buttler has said that he wants to emulate Rishabh Pant’s innings against Australia in the away series.
Pant played a big role in India’s historic win at the Gabba earlier this year. He led India to a 2-1 win over Tim Paine’s men and remained unbeaten till the end. He smoked the likes of Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood for fun and pulled a win from the jaws of defeat.
Now, Buttler is eyeing a similar role against Cummins-led Australia.
“One player I really enjoyed seeing play Tests in Australia was Rishabh Pant when they won there last winter. I love the way he can change his game between the defensive side and aggressive sides, and be totally fearless,” the 31-year-old wrote in his column for the Daily Telegraph.
“I’ll be trying to take the same sort of fearless attitude I’ve had in the T20 World Cup into my red-ball batting. That doesn’t just mean an all-out attack. But it’s taking away the worries about too many things keep the game very simple and looking to put bat to ball.”
