Buttler Honest Take of Jos Buttler on England's Cricket World Cup 2023 Exit

The captain of the England Cricket Team, Jos Buttler, admitted that "it hurts" to see his defending champions knocked out of the Cricket World Cup. On Saturday, England were defeated by a 33-run run by arch-rivals Australia to suffer their sixth loss in seven games at the tournament. Buttler said, "It certainly feels like a low point. I've had a few, but definitely as a captain. To be in this position after having arrived in India with high hopes is incredibly tough and disappointing. It hurts a lot."
Australia had been bowled out for 286 but still had enough firepower to dismiss England for 253, as the defending champions remain bottom of the table and still have two games to play.
Buttler further said, "We are disappointed. I feel like we are having the same chat after every game at the minute.”
"We haven't done ourselves justice. Coming into the tournament, we fancied ourselves to have a real go and push whoever it was going to be all the way."
He also added, "We've let ourselves down. We've let down people at home who support us through thick and thin, and we wear that on our own shoulders."
