Jos Buttler Breaks Own Record, Scores 55-Ball Ton vs Pakistan

England batsman Jos Buttler slammed a 50-ball century against Pakistan and remained unbeaten on 110 runs (55 balls) to help his side post a massive 373 runs at the end of 50 overs, on Saturday, 11 May .

Buttler came in to bat in the 36th over with the England's scorecard reading 211/3. He accelerated the run-rate by hitting the first four balls he faced for 1, 6, 4, 4 and did not look back.

The 28-year-old then played 33 deliveries to notch up his half-century before taking the next 17 balls to bring up his another ODI ton. Buttler’s 110-run knock contained six boundaries and nine hits into the stands.

In the process, he broke his own record of scoring the fastest century for England against the same opposition back in 2015 when he scored a century of just 46 balls

He was also involved in a 162-run partnership with skipper Eoin Morgan (71 not out off 48) to help England race away to a huge total. The top-order came up with substantial contributions which keeps the team in good stead ahead of the World Cup.
