Cricket: Jos Buttler Makes History!

By Prof Dr Ian Blackshaw

Jos Buttler, with his century scored in the Twenty20 World Cup Match against Sri Lanka in Sharjah, United Araba Emirates, has become the first England batsman to score centuries in all three formats of the game at the international level: Test Matches; One Day Internationals; and Twenty20 Internationals.

For an explanation of these forms and their individual characteristics and skills, log onto: https://www.icc-cricket.com/about/cricket/game-formats/the-three-formats.

Buttler is 31 years old and vice-captain of the England cricket team and the Rajasthan Royals who play in the IPL.

Of his achievement, Buttler commented as follows:

It’s great. Probably something I look back at some point and it’s a nice accolade to have.”

However, Buttler is not the first international cricketer to achieve this status.

That honour goes to Indian woman cricketer, Mithali Raj. In July 2021, she also became the leading run-scorer in women’s international cricket!
