Twitter reactions on Jos Buttler’s awe-inspiring century: Twitter celebrated Jos Buttler’s ninth ODI century against Pakistan.
During the sixth match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between England and Pakistan at Trent Bridge, England wicket-keeper batsman Jos Buttler put on display an awe-inspiring century to keep his team in a daunting chase.
Buttler came in to bat at No. 6 in the 22nd over. In a 349-run chase, the situation which lied ahead was asking too much from the English batsmen. Having said that, the right-hand batsman produced a gem of an innings to make sure that England take the match till the end.
It all started with a 130-run partnership for the fifth wicket alongside Joe Root, who scored the first century of this World Cup. Despite Root being the set batsman, it was Buttler who started to take the attack on the opposition bowlers.
Playing in his quintessential fearless manner, Buttler scored a six off Pakistan leg-spinner Shadab Khan on the first delivery of the 31st over to complete his half-century. Making sure that the required run rate doesn’t reach out of hands, Buttler took calculated risk every now and then.
On the second delivery of the 45th over, Buttler hit a four off Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir to complete his ninth ODI century and first in the World Cup. Buttler getting out on the next ball saw the match once again turning in the visiting team’s favour. Buttler ended up scoring 103 (76) with the help of nine fours and two sixes.

Both centurions caught at the same place, off balls which were there to score off. Our predictor has been tipping Pakistan to win from the start. Who can prove it wrong?

THERE IT IS!
100 for Jos Buttler off just 75 balls. He’s had some scares but he’s also batted superbly and put England in with a chance of winning this game!
