Stunning Buttler takes England to safety

A stunning hundred by Jos Buttler rescued England from trouble as they posted a commanding 163 for four in their Super 12 fixture against Sri Lanka here at the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium yesterday.

England were in all sorts of trouble after being reduced to 35 for three but Buttler was superb building up the innings and left it late to punish Sri Lanka’s bowlers in the death overs to post his maiden hindered in T-20 Internationals.

England’s wicketkeeper who has been in good nick in the tournament was on 95 facing the last delivery of the innings and dispatched Dushmatha Chameera for a six to bring up his century. His unbeaten hundred came off 67 balls and included six fours and six sixes.
