In contrast to this critique, Ahmed complimented Buttler as an exceptional captain, emphasizing England’s competitiveness till the last ODI.

“Jos is an incredible captain.” It’s entirely up to him. By the end, we were in a wonderful position. There weren’t any terrible decisions during the game. I don’t believe you can blame Jacksy for not bowling. We seem to be in the game all the way to the conclusion. We just did not execute in the end. “Were always in the game. ” Ahmed told the Belfast Telegraph.]
