Australia’s head coach Justin Langer revealed that England’s Jos Buttler is the new MS Dhoni of world cricket. Justin Langer also regards Buttler highly and hopes that he get out for a duck against Australia. Langer said that Jos Buttler will be one of the batsmen his bowlers will look to get rid off early.
Jos Buttler is a wicket-keeper batsman for England and is known for hitting big and finishing off the game. Langer said, “Jos is an unbelievable player. I love watching him bat. He is the new Dhoni of world cricket. I hope he gets a duck in this (Tuesday's) game obviously, but I saw him at Somerset and he is an unbelievable athlete and an incredible finisher.”
Jos Buttler already has one century to his name which came in a losing cause against Pakistan. The rivalry between England and Australia is regarded as one of the fiercest in world cricket and it is also the oldest. Australia is currently sitting at number two on the points table while England is at number four.
Australia has lost just one game against India out of the six they played, while England lost two, against Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
