England were bundled out for 148 and 121 in Jos Buttler's first two matches as full-time limited-overs captain, going down by 50 and 49 runs respectively. Mott, England's new white-ball coach, conceded they had been taken aback by the "ferocity" of India's approach. Meanwhile, Jos Buttler urged his troops to be braver after a couple of ordinary performances with the bat in their first two T20 internationals against India, Matthew Mott revealed. Buttler addressed the team after the second defeat in Birmingham and told the batting unit to not worry about making mistakes as they look to express themselves on the field.
