Jos Buttler was at his innovative best, against New Zealand, when he dismissed a short delivery for a six over the wicketkeeper's head and the ball ended up going out of the stadium. Buttler's dazzling stint powered England to a mammoth total of 310 and gave the hosts the edge in the match.

Jos Buttler's power packed performance resulted in the English innings ending on a high in Cardiff. The wicketkeeper-batsman came out all guns blazing to score a 48-ball 61 and take England to their second consecutive total above 300 in the tournament.

Trent Boult was brought on to bowl the 46th over by skipper Kane Williamson to restrict the home side before they could cross the 300-mark. On the 6th and final delivery of the over Boult decided to take Buttler by surprise when he bowled a short delivery at the right-hand batsman. However, Buttler surprisingly moved across the stumps towards the right and created the perfect highlight reel for the tournament.

The English wicketkeeper actually scooped the ball with a flat bat over Luke Ronchi's head which not only skied to great heights but went past the cameraman and out of the stadium.

 The shot left everyone amazed but scared the cameraman who was seen ducking to get out of way of the ball approaching him at a great pace.
