See ball, hit ball: Buttler says after taking MI to victory

See ball, hit ball: Buttler says after taking MI to victory

While it was the middle-order that had made vital contributions in MI’s wins so far in the tournament, on Thursday the Buttler-Parthiv pair put up MI’s highest opening stand of the season – 81 runs – to snatch the game from the hosts.

“Yes! It’s a relief (that the opening has come good). Whenever you open the innings you obviously want to get off to fantastic starts and that really sets the tone for rest of the innings. The big job for the openers is to set the platform for rest of the guys to come in.”



Speaking about his partnership with Parthiv, he said, “We both played our natural games. We complement each other well. He is a short left-hander, he looks to sit back and play square of the wicket and complements me with a different style at the other end. It is great fun to bat with a very calm guy. It is great that we managed to put a big partnership.”
