Tom Banton wants to open the innings
Tom Banton is showing his skills in the limited-overs team of England. Fifty in the first match of the series against Pakistan. The selectors must be embarrassed by such a performance. Tom Banton wants to open the innings, Banton originally played as the opener. But after getting a chance in the English team, he has to go down to the middle order. However, he got the opportunity to open his favorite position in the T20 series against Pakistan. Jason Roy’s injury has given Banton this opportunity.
The young batsman also took advantage of the opportunity. In the match which was abandoned in the rain, he played brilliant innings of 61 runs from 42 balls. Despite playing in the middle order in previous matches, Banton has shown his ability. At the end of the match, he said, he is willing to play in any position, but if he gets a chance, he wants stability in the opening.
“Since I don’t play in the middle order, there are some problems,” Banton said. If there is a chance I would like to go down to the opening. I think we are very strong because we are white. I don’t want to break the rhythm of the team. I am trying to run more whenever I get a chance. Which will put pressure on others.
