Rampaging Buttler

England's Jos Buttler goes on the offensive during their World Cup match against Bangladesh in Cardiff Saturday Dhaka Tribune/Md Manik from Cardiff

In one of Jos Buttler's four sixes, the ball was sent out of the stadium over the straight boundary against off-spinner Mehedi Hasan Miraz

England’s Jos Buttler has become one of the most fearsome batsmen in the shorter version of the game and he proved against Bangladesh in their World Cup match as to why he is considered so dangerous when he gets going. 

The right-handed wicket-keeper batsman has played 133 ODIs for England prior to this match, and scored 3,652 runs with a staggering strike rate of 119.93. 

Buttler has already struck a 75-ball hundred in this World Cup in the previous game. 

Bangladesh knew Buttler will be a threat during their bowling and the aggressive batsman duly delivered. 

The right-hander scored 64 off 44 balls against the Tigers with two fours and four sixes. 

England were going strong with Jason Roy’s 153 at the top. 

Just when Roy got out, England send Buttler to No 4, a bit earlier than his usual No 6 position, to maintain the momentum. 

The score was 235 for the loss of three wickets in the 35th over. 

Bangladesh just took the wickets of Joe Root and Roy within three overs and created a chance to get back on track. 

But Buttler smashed a brilliant 64 to hamper any chance of a Bangladesh turnaround. 

In one of his four sixes, the ball was sent out of the stadium over the straight boundary against off-spinner Mehedi Hasan Miraz.

Interestingly, he played the shot on his back foot, which showed how powerful he is.
