After making a splash in the IPL, Jos Buttler’s bat is not taking the name of stopping in international cricket as well. Buttler showed no mercy to the bowlers in the three-match ODI series against the Netherlands and scored 248 runs in two innings of three matches, including a century and a half-century. In the third ODI, too, he scored an unbeaten 86 off 64 balls and gave England an easy victory.
Buttler also hit 7 fours and 5 sixes in this innings of 86 runs. Thanks to the stormy innings of Buttler and Jason Roy, England achieved the target of 245 runs in just 30.1 overs. Buttler was named Player of the Series for scoring the highest 248 runs in the series. Butler’s bat saw 14 fours and 19 sixes in the entire series.
In the third ODI against the Netherlands, Jos Buttler entertained the fans with a flurry of sixes, but during this time, such a six was seen from his bat, making everyone laugh. This incident was seen in the 29th over of England’s innings when the fifth ball of Netherlands fast bowler Paul Van Meekeren missed his hand and reached Buttler with two taps.
This ball was outside the pitch on the leg side, and by law, if Buttler had left this ball, he would have been highly praised, but Buttler did not leave this ball either and sent the ball over fine leg for a long six. This ball fell outside the pitch, due to which it was a no-ball, and Butler got the next ball free hit and sent the next ball again for a six.
