Jos Buttler believes England can bounce back from Ashes humiliation with victory at the upcoming World Twenty20 tournament in the West Indies, according to the Manchester Evening News.
The Lancashire wicket-keeping batsman was not a part of England's test squad for the 5-0 drubbing at the hands of Australia, but did appear in the One Day and T20 matches, and was a part of the eleven that won England's solitary game of the tour.
“It will be really hard going to Bangladesh playing in conditions very different to what we have been playing in this winter. Sub-Continent teams will be favourites, it will be a really tough tournament,” said the youngster.
England won the tournament last time it was staged in 2010, but a win this time around looks very unlikely, especially on the back of a whitewash in the limited overs series against Australia.
If England are to come anywhere near claiming glory again, it is of course without talismanic Kevin Pietersen, whose England career came to a messy end earlier this month after his presence in the squad became too much for certain individuals.
Big hitting Buttler has been in the England set-up since 2010, and does not feel he is the finished article yet.
"I have played 20-odd one-dayers now and so far I have experienced two different halves," he said.
England's first match is the March 22, but before then they have three ODI's and three T20's against hosts, West Indies.
“It was a big learning experience and at the start I was almost a bit too desperate to perform well and a bit too desperate to show people what I can do and show the dressing room I was good enough."
