Australia skipper Tim Paine was all praises for England's Jos Buttler calling his English counterpart a better player than India's MS Dhoni. With a fantastic 110 not out in the final ODI against Australia, Jos Buttler has invited the appreciation of the Australian skipper whose team was whitewashed.

Jos Buttler, owing to his recent performance in the recently concluded England-Australia ODI series, has been praised for his efficient skills as a player. Tim Paine is one of the personalities who has appraised his performance and believes him to be a better player than MS Dhoni. In the fifth and the final One Day against Australia, Jos Buttler's 110 not out piloted England towards a magnificent one-wicket win at Old Trafford on Sunday which resulted in England whitewashing the Australians 5-0 in the series.

With a score of modest 206 to chase, England was 195/9 when Adil Rashid was dismissed. Jos Buttler proved to be a blessing in disguise for England, where he took on Marcus Stoinis and managed a 110 to acquire England's win.

“Right now, at the moment, he’d have to be the best white-ball wicket-keeper batsman in the world. I don’t think there’s too many guys to challenge him. MS Dhoni is pretty good, but right at this moment, Jos is at the absolute peak of his powers. He understands his one-day game so well and knows his strengths inside out and just doesn’t go away from him.

“He’s someone for our batters to watch and see first hand. Those experiences are going to be really good for D’Arcy Short or Travis Head to see him and Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy at their best,” Tim Paine said, appreciating the player.
