Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur has admitted that the bowling attack had no answer on how to deal with England batsman Jos Buttler.
Arthur’s comments come after Buttler was named Man of the Match for his unbeaten 110, which came off just 55 balls, in the second ODI in Southampton on Saturday.
While Pakistan put up a valiant fight, which was spearheaded by opener Fakhar Zaman’s 138, they ended up losing by a narrow margin of 12 runs.
“Oh, I don’t know, I’ve just asked the bowlers actually. They didn’t give me an answer either,” Arthur was quoted as saying by Geo.tv. “We’ll sit down and analyse that and try to work out a plan.
“I don’t think we´re going to stop him, we’ve got to find a way to get him out. The longer he bats, he’s going to do some serious damage.”
Pakistan will look to bounce back in the third ODI, which will be held in Bristol on Tuesday.
