Jos Butter ODI Career
Top Score: 129
Jos Buttler has helped bring England's limited-overs batting into the 21st century. His impact on the one-day and T20 sides has been extraordinary and, as of early 2016, he had England's three fastest one-day hundreds to his name - thrilling innings against New Zealand (Edgbaston), Sri Lanka (Lord's) and topping the list a 46-ball onslaught against Pakistan in Dubai. As an illustration of his transformation of English cricket, when it comes to the fastest one-day century, no other England batsman ranks in the top 40.
Top Score: 215
Chris Gayle…Tall and imposing at the crease, he loves to carve through the covers off either foot, and has the ability to decimate the figures of even the thriftiest of opening bowlers. Gayle's free-stroking, aggressive style is obviously best suited for limited-overs cricket, however the West Indies have missed his services far too often due his differences with their board. During his exile, he was a Twenty20 regular in various leagues around the world, entertaining crowds in Australia, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh
