England took almost four hours to bowl their 50 overs, less than three months after they were fined for maintaining a slow over-rate against the West Indies in Barbados. He remained not out on 110 runs off 55 balls where he hit six fours and nine sixes.

He smashed 128 from 93 balls after sharing a 159-run first wicket stand with Jason Roy, launching the hosts to their second-highest successful ODI run chase. Then comes Buttler and Ben Stokes to dominate the last half of the innings, with Moeen Ali to marshall a competent lower order.

While the batting appears in good fettle three games out from a World Cup England enter as favourites, it was arguably a concern that a Pakistan batting unit missing experienced duo Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik got to within a dozen runs of their 373 for three.

"It's not a shock, in fact it's getting a bit kind of routine for him to come out and play those sort of innings".

Zaman and Babar Azam kept the scoreboard ticking with a 135-run partnership, during which Zaman cruised past his hundred, before he was caught behind off the bowling of Chris Woakes for 138, which came off 106 balls and included 12 boundaries and four sixes.

"He's an extreme talent and works hard for it and deserves everything he gets".

Buttler, England's one-day wicket-keeper, has also made his mark in global franchise tournaments such as the Twenty20 Indian Premier League and Australia's Big Bash. He put him into the greatest ODI batsmen group along with Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, MS Dhoni, Viv Richards etc.

Tiger Woods says Bethpage Black can be 'mentally and physically
Woods' response was only seven words long and made reference to one of his most famous major victories - the 2008 U.S. He will be the first player to ride in a cart at a major championship since Casey Martin in the U.S.

Actually, his batting is a combination of Dhoni and De Villiers - the inventiveness, improvisation and hand-eye co-ordination of the latter melded to the cool, nerveless presence of the former, especially when prosecuting run-chases.

"I don't think we've put any pressure on ourselves".

After recovering from a back spasm while batting for Surrey in the Royal London One-Day Cup last month, Roy believes his injuries woes are now behind him.

England are due to announced their 15-man squad for the World Cup at Lord's on May 21, with white-ball captain Eoin Morgan relishing the competition for places.

Only Buttler himself, with a 46-ball effort against Pakistan in November 2015, has scored a quicker ODI hundred for England. "I spent six or seven weeks with my hamstring injury, fixing my torn hamstring", he said. More worryingly, they've been winless in their last eight games, including a washout in the first ODI of the ongoing series.

'That hundred I got in Sydney was probably the best I'd played in an England shirt.

"It was great to have her (Georgia) here and I'm delighted to play that way back in an England shirt this summer", said Buttler.
