JOS BUTTLER (England)
Jos Buttler saw a renaissance in his batting abilities as he was promoted to the opening spot for England and in IPL as well. He scored a string of half-century scores in the IPL as an opener and showed that in T20 format, he is more suited at the top of the order unlike the Tests or ODIs.
Buttler has been one of the lynchpins of England’s rise as a limited overs superpower since the 2015 ICC World Cup disaster. Buttler has seen England out of many tough situations and now after his successful stint in IPL as an opener, England has also given him the opportunity to open as well and give the T20 format a new devastating opener to cheer for.
Jos Buttler is adept at scoring runs at will around the ground and in the air, taking advantage of the field restrictions and as seen in IPL, can take the team through even against the best of the spinners.
