Jos Buttler: England’s Skipper and wicketkeeper Jos Buttler, bats lower down the order in ODIs.

Butler can bat anywhere in the order. He can also wreck any bowling attack with his storming batting.

Most batting tracks will be featured in the World Cup this year. In such a circumstance, all eyes will be on Butler’s erratic hitting.


Litton Das: Liton Das, the wicketkeeper-batsman, is Bangladesh’s major batting connection. Das bats first and is capable of scoring runs at a rapid rate straight away. Litton’s ability to score runs is critical if Bangladesh is to play well in the World Cup.
