England batsman Jos Buttler has taken world cricket by storm in the past year and if the recent series against Pakistan was anything to go by, he will be the biggest threat for opposition bowlers as teams gear up to play in the 2019 World Cup in England and Wales. However, Buttler himselfbhas picked Ben Stokes as biggest key player for England.
“Ben is the biggest key player really for England. He balances the side brilliantly in the way he can bat and bowl and has a great influence on the whole team. He is one of the best all-rounders in the world and I am looking forward to him showing that with some quality performances in the World Cup,” he pointed.
Talking of his own journey in the last year, Buttler feels the elevation to the top of the innings while playing for Rajasthan in the IPL changed the course of his career.
“It has been an incredible year personally. I think last year when I started with the Royals, I was doing okay, but I wasn’t quite feeling like I was showing exactly what I was capable of and a change to the top of the order coincided with a great run of form and from there I was very lucky to be involved with England in Test match cricket and had a really enjoyable summer. Have been riding that wave ever since and looking to make it continue and last as long as possible,” he smiled.
