life is having a wonderful time

During this, Jos Butler also admitted that this is a wonderful time in his life. He said after the match – IPL could not have been better than this. When I went to bat here, I was in good rhythm, the wicket was also good and I had the license to attack. The T20 World Cup went well for us, the Ashes was a bit difficult. I had 2 months without any cricket, in that I was refreshed, after that I went to IPL with a lot of motivation, a lot of energy, aspiration to do better than myself.
magic figure of 500 runs
“Next year is the ODI World Cup in India and our preparations are not very much yet. Before the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia, we would like to keep doing some such experiments.”

Butler said after the match that, I don’t know how easy it is to score 500 runs but we will keep trying to do that. It is difficult to achieve this. Maybe it could be on a smaller ground and on a good batting wicket.
we will keep trying
“But without looking at the score, the way we played, the mindset we demonstrated is more important. We will keep trying to get better and we know we are headed in the right direction. “
