London: England star Jos Buttler says he will focus all his efforts on making another sizeable contribution to his country’s limited-overs revolution on Saturday as the second ODI coincides with the auction for this year’s Indian Premier League where one of the most dynamic and innovative talents in the world game will feature for the first time.
There can have been no greater advertisement for Buttler’s appeal to an Indian Twenty20 audience his latest eye-catching century that propelled England to victory in an ultimately rain-ruined first international against South Africa.
Jos Buttler hit 105 as England beat South Africa in the first One-Day International on Thursday. “I’ll be interested to know what is happening in India but it’s beyond my control so it will be pretty easy to put it to the back of my mind and concentrate on what is going on here,” said Buttler, who hit his fourth one-day international century in Bloemfontein. “It’s quite a strange feeling to be in the auction. You just put your name in a hat and see what happens.”
