Jos Buttler, who was in the thick of action in the nail-biting World Cup 2019 final against New Zealand, stated that nothing would ever faze him again in his career. 

The wicket-keeper had played a key role in England's win at Lord's on Sunday, which helped the Three Lions win the Cup for the first time ever. He contributed a crucial 59 with the bat in the game after early wickets had hampered their progress. His partnership with Player of the Match Ben Stokes helped England tie the match, which led the match into the Super Over. 

In the Super Over, Buttler hit the last ball of Trent Boult's delivery for a four as the hosts notched up 15 runs. He played a crucial role in running out Martin Guptill in the final ball of the Super Over, which meant that New Zealand too ended with 15 runs. However, England won the game because they had more boundaries. 

"I can't believe what has happened but it's nice to wake up and know it did," he said.

"I don't think anything will faze me again. I don't think I'll ever care about anything ever again. I don't really care what happens now in my career."

England were ousted from the World Cup 2015 in the first round, and Buttler remarked that the efforts his side had put in the last four years is what led to the win. 

"We were laughing about the fact that four years of work came down to one ball," said Buttler.

"Four years and then it's one ball... can we get a run-out? It justifies everything we have done for four years to get to this point. It's an incredible journey.

"At the end I remember that 10 seconds of just running around, the atmosphere is something that will live with me forever.

"It's all right when you're in the middle because it's what you know -- catch a ball, smash the stumps -- but the consequences are obviously quite a lot larger."
