Bairstow credits IPL and Warner for his improvement

England wicket-keeper batsman, Jonny Bairstow blasted his seventh One-Day International ton scoring 128 from 93 balls as England beat Pakistan by six wickets at Bristol to take a 2-0 series lead with two games to play.

The English batsman, reflecting back on his century, stated that he benefited a lot from his experience of playing alongside the likes of Australia's David Warner in the Indian Premier League which helped take his game to new heights.

“You’re able to learn different things from different coaches and different players. It’s just little things like game plans. He (Warner) hits in completely different areas to potentially myself. I guess its method more than anything else. But learning from them, as well as the guys here, that can only be a good thing playing under pressure with expectation,” Bairstow said.

England skipper Eoin Morgan also praised Bairstow, saying he alongside Jason Roy set the platform for the team to register their second-highest chase in ODIs.
