Arthur out of ideas to stop Buttler

Pakistan looked helpless as they saw an absolute carnage from the bat of Jos Buttler who smacked a fifty-ball century, the second fastest ever for England, behind his own record of 46 balls. This was Buttler's eighth century in 129 matches at this level, with the England ODI wicketkeeper now having scored 3,497 runs at an average of 42.

Pakistan was left at the receiving end of Buttler’s absolute hitting and they had no clue where to bowl and nor did the Pakistani head coach, Mickey Arthur who admit it after the match. "I don't know how you bowl to him. I've just asked the bowlers the same thing and they didn't have an answer either. But I don't think we're going to stop him, so we've got to try to get him out," Mickey said.

Buttler now has five of the 10 fastest ODI centuries by an England batsman, having struck a 60-ball ton on his way to 150 against West Indies at Grenada in February.
