Dream ODI XI of 2016: A Galaxy of Stars


6. Jos Buttler (England) – 573 runs, Avg: 57.30, S/R – 129.93

Jos ButlerThe English Wicket-keeper batsman; Jos Buttler enjoyed a very productive year. The attacking Lancashire batsman is rapidly learning the art of scoring consistently without curbing on his natural instincts and that makes him an outright match-winner in ODIs. Buttler is a very difficult batsman to bowl to as he possesses all the ingredients of a modern-day master. The right-hander plays unorthodox shots with some success rate apart from the conventional strokes. In 13 innings, the English Vice-captain scored 1 century and 5 half-centuries.

In absence of Eoin Morgan, Buttler led England to a series win in Bangladesh, which was considered one of the toughest challenges for this young and dynamic side. He himself contributed with twin half-centuries in the 3-match ODI series.
