ICC Cricket World Cup 2015: Jos Buttler appointed England vice captain

Shashi / 09 February 2015

Jos Butler has been appointed as the Vice-Captain of the England ODI team ahead of Joe Root and other experienced players. This has to be one of the aggressive moves by the English selectors. Jos Buttler, the batsman and wicket-keeper of the team, has expressed his view that though he is glad with his part as a ‘finisher’, his aim is to bat for 35-40 overs, and score big glorious tons for England team. 

On Saturday Jos Buttler would win his 50th One Day International jersey in England’s International Cricket Council World Cup 2015 opener against Australia.  The BBC reported, Jos said that he was determined to score big scores and did not want to be “pigeon-holed” as someone who could only end an innings. The report added, the wicket-keeper batsman admitted that though he is glad with his part as finisher, he added that he would want to be someone who could bat for 35 to 40 overs and get huge glorious tons.
