In the ENG vs NZ live score, Buttler cracks a forehand knock
When it comes to short and short-of-length bowling at the World Cup, the tennis forehand is fast becoming an effective shot for batsmen. Jos Buttler reproduced the down the line variant of the shot after Suryakumar Yadav employed it against Anrich Nortje in Perth. When he was dropped trying to hook Lockie Ferguson, he unleashed the forehand smack. Only that he had enough time to swing the ball over mid-on, unlike Surya flayed it past mid-off. A cross-court forehand could be called what he does. Little wonder that he was once the U-13 tennis champion of Somerset. The forehand slap seems to be working as a counterattack against the short-pitch barrage.

Jos, sorry for the late update on the ENG-NZ match
In the game, Kane Williamson is always a gentleman. He grabbed the ball from Jos Buttler after running backwards, lunging full pelt. While the ball jumped out of his hand, Williamson juggled adeptly and clung to it between his fists until it cushioned onto his body. While his teammates were certain the catch had been clean and had begun celebrating, the captain of New Zealand immediately gestured to the umpires that he wasn’t sure he had taken the catch properly. It was revealed on replay, however, that Buttler had spilled the ball onto the ground before gathering it. As the screen flashed not out, Williamson apologized to Buttler immediately.
