WATCH: Jos Buttler gives batting demo ahead of hitting fifty in first England v India T20I


Jos Buttler demonstrates his batting technique with Nasser Hussain ahead of the first T20 against India

Want to bat like Jos Buttler?

And why wouldn’t you after England’s in-form wicketkeeper-batsman smashed another T20I fifty – 69 off 46 balls – in the game against India at Old Trafford.

Ahead of that opening game of the three-match series between the two sides, Sky Sports’ Nasser Hussain caught up with Jos to go through a few hitting drills.

Click on the video above to watch as Buttler shows off his wristy technique, owed to having a strong bottom-hand grip.

Buttler also talks through his fancy footwork at the crease, taking the lead of South Africa’s AB de Villiers in trying to put the bowler off.

The England batsman also talks about the confidence he has gained from his incredible recent run of form – five IPL fifties in a row, man of the ODI series against Australia, and the hitting the fastest T20I fifty for England – and his move up to the top of the order.
