Butler also garnered praise for the bowling attack, saying the English spinners were restricting Indian batsmen in the middle of overs.
“I’m happy with the response of the boys. We put on a very good performance in bowling to limit India to that amount. I’m glad we continued to commit to the fashion we want to play cricket. The boys in the middle of the overs did a great job to restricted them at this point when Rishabh Pant was going, it was a big leash for us, “Butler said.
“They (the spinning machines) bowled well in tandem, they are great friends and they enjoy having fun together.
