Buttler Drops Mark Wood as England Decide to Bowl First Against USA

England vs USA cricket match

In a crucial match at Kensington Oval, Barbados, Jos Buttler won the toss and opted to bowl first against the USA. The defending champions, England, have made a significant change by dropping Mark Wood and bringing in Chris Jordan, known for his familiarity with Barbados conditions and expertise in death bowling.

After a setback against South Africa, England aims to bounce back with a new strategy. The USA, sticking with their unchanged lineup, seeks to impress by defeating the reigning champions despite the absence of their regular captain, Monank Patel. They are eager to recover from a recent defeat to the West Indies.
