Jos Buttler has been a revelation of sorts for England in white ball cricket. In fact, he has been central to the transformation of English white ball cricket. He is with Quinton de Kock, the best wicketkeeper batsman in the globe today and his T20 numbers are even more lethal.
Jos Buttler was part of the historic 2019 World Cup winning England side and was involved in the final act that got the trophy home for the first time. In recent times, with moderate success Buttler has also established himself in the Test team, however his numbers need starc improvement with the red ball. One of the most vaunted players in the IPL, the right-hander holds the record for the most consecutive fifties in the cash-rich league.
Recently while speaking at the Royal podcast, the Englishman was asked about his cricketing idol. The dasher had no qualms in naming that AB de Villiers is his idol. Buttler added that the “guy is awesome” and he loved “watching him bat.”
