England’s limited over captain Eoin Morgan has indicated that Jos Buttler will continue as an opening batsman ahead of the T20I World Cup in Australia. Morgan heaped praised on the batting capability of the wicket-keeper batsman and compared him with AB de Villiers.
“Jos is one of the greatest ever white-ball cricketers. I realize why people talk about him so much, but not in a negative way. He has as much as talent as someone like AB de Villiers”, Eoin Morgan said.
Buttler opened the innings along with Jason Roy in the 3-match T20I series against South Africa. He showed a glimpse of promise at the top of the order for England. His ability to strike big and improvise at the opening slot will help England to post big totals in the all-important ICC T20 World Cup.
