After being whitewashed 5-0 by Australia in the Ashes series, England lost the first match of the five game One-Day International (ODI) series against Australia as well at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). But they did register a win against the Prime Minister’s XI.

England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler, who has played in the Big Bash League in Australia said about the victory to Sky Sports News, “It’s great to get a win, It’s going to be a morale-boost for everyone, no matter who it is against.

“There were a lot of positives that came out of today. We got up to a challenging total and put them under pressure straight away with the ball. We had a lot of energy and we really tried to target early wickets and we got those.”

He continued, “Everyone is pleased to get a win and hopefully we can take that momentum forward to Brisbane.”

Butller talked about the positives from the game that England can carry forward to the rest of the ODI series, “There were a lot of positives that came out of  the match. We got up to a challenging total and put them under pressure straight away with the ball.”

Buttler has a reputation of being a power hitter, but when asked about whether England would consider elevating him to bat in the top of the order he said, “That’s down to the management and the captain as to what they see is best.

“I’ll bat anywhere. Number seven is where I’ve been playing in one-day cricket since I’ve been playing in this side and I don’t see that changing. That’s what everyone wants to do – bat as long as they can. I’ll bat wherever. I’m not fussed.”
