Australia skipper Tim Paine has hailed England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler higher than former India skipper Dhoni as the best keeper-batsman in white ball cricket.
Paine said, “He’s good, he’s very good.”
“Right now, I don’t think there are many people who can challenge him. MS Dhoni is pretty good, but Jos is at peak of his powers. He understands his ODI game well and he is also aware of his strengths inside out,” he added.
Buttler scored an unbeaten 110 to help England whitewash Australia in the fifth One-Day International at Old Trafford on Sunday.
He scored 275 runs in the series which included scores of 91*, 54* and 110*.
Buttler earned a national call in the Test team after his stellar performance in the eleventh edition of the IPL. He scored two half-centuries in the series against Pakistan.
I guess Paine really never watch cricket matches except when he plays cricket. https://t.co/UOmyPjvAn7

“Right now, at the moment, Buttler has to be the best white-ball wicket-keeper batsman in the world." https://t.co/NfaFv2aZrn

Comparisons btwn #Dhoni and #Buttler r amusing. Dhoni is towards end of his glorious career & Buttler is yet to reach his prime. Don't even understand the point of comparing the two & claim one is better than other! 🤦
