England career

Buttler’s first taste of international cricket came in July 2008, when he represented England Under-17s in two warm-up cricket matches against New Zealand Under-19s. Batting at number five, he scored a rapid 77 not out in the 50-over contest, hitting 11 fours and two sixes during the 49 deliveries he faced.

Test entrance, Champions Trophy, and T20 World Cup

Buttler replaced a rested Jonathan Trott in the England ODI squad in India in early 2013and replaced Craig Kieswetter as the first-choice wicket-keeper halfway through the ODI series. This allowed Buttler to break into the England ODI side on a consistent basis, playing regularly throughout the year in both ODI and T20 formats and increasingly as a wicket-keeper, his work behind the stumps. He scored his maiden half-century for England in a T20 warm-up cricket match at the start of England’s tour of New Zealand followed by his first T20I half-century in the second cricket match of the series.

England captain Alastair Cook expressed his disappointment, stating “I’ve never seen it before in a game. I was pretty disappointed.

In May 2018, Buttler was recalled into England’s Test squad to play Pakistan at Lord’s later that month. He had a successful return to Test cricket, scoring two half-centuries and scoring the most runs in the series; he also won the Man of the Cricket match award at Headingley.

In the subsequent ODI series against Australia on June 2018, he scored two half-centuries in the first four cricket matches and then, in the fifth and final game of the series, he made 110 and not out to take England to a historic series defeat. In this cricket match, no other English batsman made more than 20 and Buttler was later described as “the best white-ball wicketkeeper-batsman in the world”. Buttler was named Man of the Cricket match for his 110 not out, and also named Man of the Series for his impressive contributions with both bat and gloves. In the T20I cricket match of Australia’s tour, Buttler scored the fastest T20I half-century by an English cricketer, in 22 balls.

Buttler replaced James Anderson as the Test vice-captain on 31 July 2018, thus combining the role in all formats. He registered his maiden Test century in the third Test of India’s tour of England in August 2018, with a score of 106.  Buttler then retained his place in the Test and one-day squads, being selected to tour Sri Lanka in October and into the following year.

For his performances in 2018, he was named as the wicket-keeper of the Test XI and World ODI XI by the ICC and Cricinfo. Furthermore, he was included in the T20 XI by Cricinfo.

In February 2019, during the fourth ODI of England’s tour of the West Indies, Buttler scored a career-best 150 from 77 deliveries as England reached 418/6.[112] During this innings, he hit 12 sixes, at the time the most by any English batsman in an ODI, and went from 51 to 100 in just 15 balls and from 100 to 150 in just 16 deliveries. This was part of an England world record for the most sixes in an ODI, with 24. Following the innings, West Indian batsman Chris Gayle praised Buttler, stating, “He is superb, one of the best strikers [of the ball] in world cricket today. We can see he is a game-winner, a game-changer and every team need a cricketer like that to win games.”, while England captain Eoin Morgan labeled him as “built like a champion racehorse”.

In the second ODI of the five-cricket match series against Pakistan in May, Buttler scored an unbeaten 110 from 55 balls, his century coming in only 50 deliveries. This is the second-fastest hundred by an English batsman in ODI cricket after his own record set against Pakistan in 2015.

Ben Stokes performance can help England to win over South Africa in upcoming cricket series

Ben Stokes performance can help England to win over South Africa in upcoming cricket series. As England starts their series with four test matches against South Africa since Boxing Day at the Centurion, followed by three T20I and three ODIs, the last of which will take place on February 16, 2020. Cricket lovers are waiting to see the most exciting matches of South Africa v England. Now they can book their South Africa v England Tickets on our reliable online ticketing market place.

The great Irish sports writer Con Houlihan said that each team should have a redhead. And it is true that the combative nature of Ben Stokes, combined with his powerful cadre and his scandalous talent, has propelled England a little timid to another level.

Able to play games with his stick, bowling and on the pitch – both in character and action – Stokes quickly drew comparisons with Ian Botham. The expectations were huge.

He could console himself knowing that he had the time and the ability to make sure that he would be remembered for more positive reasons. A few months after his return, Stokes played a key role in the Englishman’s 3-0 victory in Sri Lanka, their first win in Asia in a series of whitewashes. Trevor Bayliss described Stokes’ attitude as “exemplary”, saying he had “learned his lesson”.

Stokes, like England after a dreary tournament, needed to rejuvenate. It started with the Lord’s test against New Zealand when Stokes scored 92 and 101 after being promoted to batting No. 6. Successful Ashes followed and he was also a central figure of the new ODI group that has started placing the Cup world behind them under the direction of Bayliss and Paul Farbrace.

A few months later, he produced 258 balls against 198 for South Africa in Cape Town – the fastest of the two hundred British in history and the second fastest of all time – at a stand of 399 with Jonny Bairstow.

Stokes’ performance was a rare plus point on a disastrous trip. When the agony was over, only Stokes returned to England and became a rising star. Admitted in the XI to Adelaide, after the premature departure of Jonathan Trott, his pugnacious nature appeared during the first test hundred in Perth, Perth, a plump response that does not correspond to the general behavior of England throughout the trip.

England collapses as Faf du Plessis can pulls strings for South Africa in upcoming series of 2019-20

England collapse as Faf du Plessis can pulls strings for South Africa in upcoming series of 2019-20. England’s cricket team is scheduled to tour South Africa from December 2019 to February 2020 to play four test matches, three international day games and three matches of Twenty20 International.

In 2017, the South African captain, a tough and phlegmatic man, had to endure the loss of his last four wickets in the first 40 minutes, then attend the fast fight of two English batsman, despite the loss of the two openers with only three runs on the board.

Yet at the end of another extraordinary and entertaining day of the cricket event, Du Plessis led with 205 runs with nine wickets in hand. After two days, South Africa holds all the best cards.

Du Plessis managed his attack skilfully during the remarkably brief innings of England. At one point, Joe Root was striking so sublimely that the 335 South Africans looked inadequate, but after the English captain’s departure after a majestic 78-by-76 shot, the innings imploded, Du Plessis pulling the metaphorical strings as deftly as Messrs. Fluck and Law decades ago.

In one way or another, England managed to change the ball before the game started and it seems that the replacement was a bit more mischievous than the one used under the sun of the previous evening.

Anderson finished with another draw five times on his beloved Trent Bridge, where he played much more effectively for England than at home at Old Trafford. He now has 59 wickets here in nine games and this is his seventh out of five steals when he moved to Nottingham on the 22 he won in test cricket.

At 5 pm, when he was back on the field, the smile was less wide. He managed to dismiss Heino Kuhn, but it was England’s only success in the final session of another fascinating and stunning day – and very painful for the locals.

Joe Root shared the hope that his first Test victory as England’s captain could be the start of something after Moeen Ali’s all-out sorcery completed a 177-runs victory over South Africa and completed an impressive 3-1 victory against the tourists.

Moeen, in Root’s team to victory on the fourth day at Old Trafford with figures of five for 69, completed a rare statistical double, becoming the second cricketer in England only since Ian Botham in the 1981 Ashes and 1985 to claim 25 wickets and to score 250-more runs in series.

“It was very important to have a good start this summer,” said Root, whose team put Australia in third place in the Test standings thanks to England’s first home  win over South Africa since 1998.

“It’s very nice, most of the time. There was a week that was not as fun as the other three [Trent Bridge defeat], but it’s an integral part of the captain’s role. I hope it’s the beginning of something.

“It will take time to develop if we want to be more consistent and continue to challenge the best teams in the world. If we exploit the mentality we have here, especially at the back of the series, and repeat it over and over again, it will be very useful. “

For South Africa, it was only their second away series defeat in nine years. After a difficult time in England, defeats in all formats and an exit from the group stage of the Champions Trophy allow them to replace Russell Domingo as a coach. Ottis Gibson, the bowling mentor in England, will soon be named in his place.

Yet on Friday, he had a decisive break to have the star batsman Hashim Amla lbw at 29. Ali then pulled off South African captain Dean Elgar, who was holding the innings together, at 54, when the opener was caught by Gary Ballance in the short leg. Elgar’s exit left the Proteas in trouble at 98 for three.

It also meant that Moeen had made the “double” in his 38th test, with only the late Tony Greig, who took 37 matches, thus achieving this feat in fewer games for England.
